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

Review

This car is a real pleasure to drive. Dead quiet without a bit of mush. The 525i won't throw your head back into the powered headrest but it does get you onto the interstate just fine. Once there you can cruise at 70mph/2400rpm and watch your mpg gauge hover above the 30mpg mark. I often find myself seeking out corners to carve. If I was forced to complain... it takes a little bit more time to zip between radio bands and stations or ejecting and inserting CDs. IDrive would be rough on the techno challenged among us. I'm not used to a car without a dipstick either. Don't let any of this stop you from experiencing the craftsmanship and engineering excellence of this car. Even if it's a test drive

Favorite Features

Built in rechargeable flashlight w/logo, passenger mirror automatically tilts down to view curb when in reverse. Cruise control indicator mark magically appears on the perimeter of the speedo in a most cool way.

Suggested Improvements

A few discreet buttons for radio presets or band. Easier vent and heat routing changes.
