This is my 6th 5 series and it does have a character all it's own. Runs flawlessly and has all the handling capabilities one would expect. Still, the iDrive (which I'm still getting used to) is an unnecessary pain especially to adjust vent settings. Voice commands are understood about 70% of the time and Run Flat Tires are just not worth it (cannot be repaired,are $400 ea and have to be ordered if you need one - not in stock at most shops). Installed AUX cable for my IPOD, but that should be automatic and it should work with steering wheel controls and should show all IPOD information on the cars display. Wheels are boring (no style) and have been replaced as well.
Kill iDrive and Run Flats, Cup Holders need more work, Door storage enlarged, iPod hook up, better and more voice commands, more Nav features,
