It's OK, but too slow...

Vehicle

2006 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

I've had two problems, I can live with them till service. One is annoying with the sun roof. It operates, but BANGS/pops closing most times. Close once, bang, open close again, less bang. Seems most awful when hot, car parked. Anyway, I've had 530s previously...very nice. My 525, I thought the quicker 6 spd autotrans, it would have more zip. Seems very anemic on the highway and byway! Bodystyle I've grown to appreciate and like. The competition is copying it. Also I now know if I pass my bodystyle on the road, it's an '04 or later.

Favorite Features

Heated steering wheel, remote trunk open

Suggested Improvements

Radio and station change is OLD WORLD, dialing in or crusing your presets, I miss the buttons, at least 2 or 3.
