2006 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Love this car more than any other. Purchased sports package, winter package and upgraded further to 19" special order BMW rims w/new michelins (handles even better than with stock), had dealer tint windows (hot in NC during summer). Handling is perfect. Also negotiated for iPod hook up which is now a necessity. iDrive & bluetooth easy to use if you spend a few minutes with it. Less buttons on dash is good - hate a cluttered console. Haven't had a single problem with anything. This car is absolutely gorgeous. I can't count the number of compliments I get on it and mostly from men who are surprised it's driven by a woman :-)
iPod hook up, heated seats, handling, bluetooth, overall aesthetic, drivability, comfort on long trips, adjustable seats for more the more petite, room in back seat.
