After 4500 miles of fun driving

Vehicle

2005 BMW 5 Series 545i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

Review

I chose European Delivery and picked up my 545i in Munich, Germany. This car is designed to be driven at 100 mph + on German autobahn. At over 100 mph on German autobahn, this car can cruise at ease for hours like itís doing 60 mph. The 545 is deceivingly fast and extremely quiet. The fit and finish is excellent. With Sport Package option, the car feels like it can take corners better than a Porsche Boxster. The state of art BMW Valvetronic V8 engine is amazingly smooth and responsive. The braking and handling inspire confidence in the driver. The cabin is isolated from all outside noise. I prefer to hear the engine and exhaust a little bit more. BMW 545 is my 4 door sport car TOY!

Favorite Features

BMW 4.5L Valvetronic V8, Sport pkg (including Active Roll Stabilization, Sport suspension, Active Steering), Navigation System, Premium Sound - Logic 7, Xenon Adaptive Headlights.

Suggested Improvements

The car should come with with normal Maximum Performance Tires instead of Run Flat Tires. Active Steering should be a stand alone option not included in the Sport Package option. A car like this should have zero noise going over bumps. The noise might be from door seal, leather rubbing.
