2005 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
This is the perfect car. Handles awesome, the combination of power versus fuel economy is phenomenal and the quietness and comfortable ride are totally there. Not to mention badass looks! The car is gorgeous. I have the black with tan interior. Nothing on the road is as beautiful except maybe the Benz 500. This thing runs like mad when you want and smooth as can be when you want to lay back. Stable as can be under rough pavement and braking is first rate. My former car was a 3 series and I miss the razor sharp handling, but the 3 was a little "touchy". Not so with the 530i. I have the premium package, the regular sound system is ok with me and the seats are very comfortable.
Gorgeous looks, fabulous engine, fuel economy (30 mpg hway, 19 city), comfort and quietness, handling, power. SmOOOOOOOth and luxurious. Hard to fathom a better combination of lux, sport and efficiency, with solidity and feeling of safety.
