2006 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I initially looked at the new 3 series, but the 5 series is in a different class with much more space and elegance. The car feels so refined and performance is exceptional. It remains refined and composed no matter how you drive it. It corners like it is on rails and accelerates strongly. Brakes are powerful and progressive with great feed back. Steering is agile and sensitive with good feed back. Build quality throughout the car is excellent, interior materials have an exceptional look and feel. Interior controls are confined to those used most, others are accessed via the iDrive, which I found extremely easy to use.

Best Features

The car has all the features I need and more, however the iDrive, rain sensing wipers, comfort access package and the ambient lighting are amongst my favorites.

Worst Features

The interior storage is limited and cup holders are a bit inadequate, these in my opinion are small details that do not in any way detract from the overall satisfaction of owning and driving this car.
