2005 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

This is my first BMW. I fell in love with German engineering when I owned the '98 Passat. This is that multiplied by 10. The car is a pure joy to drive. It makes the slog of the commute worth it, at least for a little while. I-drive is nowhere near the horrible extra everyone says. The cupholders aren't great, but they do the job. The one complaint I have is minor, and that is the odd compartments in the center armrest. What's the point?

Best Features

SMG transmission, xenon headlights and massive trunk.

Worst Features

Center console compartments and seats could be a bit more plush, but the driver's constant tinkering and inability to find a comfortable position may be contributing to the problem.
