My BMW 545i Six Speed
By Tom Schmidt on
Vehicle
2005 BMW 5 Series 545i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)
Review
BMW gave the owners of the older E39 a reason to trade up. The newer E60 is so different in terms of improved handling and balance its hard to believe they came from the same company. I took possession of the car in Munich so I got to drive it on the Autobahn. Wow, what a thrill. When a car is designed to travel safely at 130 mph, it's even safer at 70 mph. It's so well thought out in every detail that it seems every design feature has it's own complex rationale. It is probably the the perfect car for me.
Favorite Features
The car handles like nothing else except, perhaps, a true sports car. The plush interior and the exterior styling are unquestionably elegant. No Chris Bangle bashing here. The car stuns in person.
Suggested Improvements
The iDrive remains to be improved. However, the alternative is one million little buttons like on the Audi A6, which is no solution at all.
