545i is pretty darn nice

ReviewI purchased a 545i today after driving
a 530i Sport package demo. This car
is pretty awesome. The 6 speed auto
transmission was surprisingly smooth
and did a nice job of kicking into
lower gears coming out of the apex of
my turns. Anyone who thinks the new i-
Drive is difficult simply lacks any
degree of common sense. I found the
system easy to navigate. And BMW did
a nice job of adding a menu button to
get back to the main screen if you
shold get lost and functional knobs
for the temp control and raido volume,
which pretty much eliminates the
necessity to use the i-Drive when you
Best FeaturesSuspension and transmission were awesome. New dash layout is very ergonomic. Trunk space is massive compared to my old 540i.
Worst FeaturesThis car needs the 8 cylinder to make it hum. I found the 221 horses to be slightly underpowered for spirited driving. Although the torque was pretty good at the low end.
