2006 BMW 5 Series 525xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I owned a 2003 525i and thought it was perfect. Then I got my 2006 525xi and fell in love all over again. What a car. I thought it was impossible to improve on perfection but I was wrong. This car is roomier and has a much bigger trunk. I was concerned that the all wheel drive would really suck up the gas but so far I am getting 20 to 25 miles to the gallon and I can live with that to drive this awesome car. The handling of the all wheel drive is so terrific that when I drove a 2005 525i this past week, I felt a little out of control. I know it was my imagination but that is the assurance level I have in my car.
The body style is very sleek and yet it looks like a real muscle car - love the look. I like having all the vitals on the dash in front of me and they finally installed a drink cup holder that is really functional.
