2006 BMW 5 Series 530xi 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I went from a Mercedes wagon to a Volvo XC90 to the BMW. Had never driven a BMW before so wasn't sure what to expect. My wife and I looked in the dealer lot after a return from a second honeymoon and she said "This is nice". Had ordered the new ML500 and she "hated" it. Test drove the car, was really impressed, bought it a week later. Very high tech, great ride and love the heated rear seats. I am a car junkie so I researched many vehicles. Promised my wife I would keep this one. Everything on this car exudes quality. Just can't say enough good things about it. Great looker, awesome headlights, solid build.
Headlights, build quality, tailgate window opens separately, I Drive, aggressive front stance, pretty much everything on the car.
More cargo room in the back like Mercedes, being tall I run into the B pillar exiting the car, more ground clearance.
