2004 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Like the looking and performance. Marked 225 hps but feels stronger than Infiniti G35 during the acceleration, which claimed 280 hps. Navigation system works better than my portable Garmin one, particularly the voice reminder, split screen: one for map and one for arrow direction. Parktronic and adaptive headlight are good features. The basic stereo sound is already better than the Bose in my previous Infiniti i30. Things I do not like: the interior looks cheaper than most of the same level cars in the market. IDrive is ok but not much advantages. No mp3 playable although the manual said so. No DVD playable in parking like Infiniti M Series.

Favorite Features

Style, handling, GPS, addaptive lights, windshield rain sensor, Sound guality of stereo, parktronic sensor.

Suggested Improvements

Interior could look more luxury. Need more storage cases. MP3 and DVD play function should be added. IDrive computer should work more reliably.
