06 SMG Dream Ride
By GWF on


2006 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Purchased 06 CPO with 37k miles. After researching for 2yrs, finally purchased gray beauty. The balance and performance are amazing.Purchased the SMG model, it took a little getting used to, but is truly fun to drive. Many of the reviews about iDrive scared me, but after the initial set up, the iDrive is great. It makes driving easier. We have the Sirius Satellite and this makes long drives a pleasure for all.The ride? Amazing, with active steering and Sports package a great combination. The seats are great and it is truly a fun ride. Great value for a used car, make sure you have a car warranty and service warranty. Can be costly.

Best Features

Love the iDrive - it is great. Bluetooth is great especially with the new CA law. Sports Package, Sirius radio, Logic7, make the driving experience even better. SMG in sport mode changes the car into a completely different machine. WOW! Shade package, logic7, active steering.

Worst Features

Run flat tires provide very hard ride, I will replace when they wear out. Less hesitation between shifts in automatic mode on SMG. Other than that, one of the greatest cars ever built.
