2006 BMW 5 Series 530xi 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Great driving car, and very handsome. Gives a lot of confidence when driving in bad weather.
Transmission and engine combo is excellent. Nav system is great.
Third row (kid) seat, a la MB's wagon. Second row seats too low for kids to see out window. Getting to the radio is too hard. Got the "night vision" option, but rarely use it (not very safe) except as the "movie channel" for the kids. Wiper stalk is over tasked, and hard to manage when driving.
