In a class by itself

2006 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Bought this car for my wife after we sold our X5. Boy was this a revelation. Driving off from the dealer lot, I could tell this was no ordinary car. The smoothest acceleration I've ever experienced. The bluetooth rocks. The Navigation is intuitive and the Gas mileage is off the charts (25mpg). This car combines comfort, performance and style excellently well. After 1 year, we've had no issues with the car, and are falling in love with it more every day.
Bluetooth handsfree feature is great. The I-drive takes some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, you'll love it. The smooth engine and raw power. The leather seating and "seat warmers" as my wife calls it are outstanding.
Terrible rear seat leg room. BMW has to do something about this. Also the trunk space leaves a lot to be desired. We noticed that our old beater (a '96 Camry) had more rear leg room and trunk space than our beloved 5series!
