Truly, the Ultimate Driving Machine....
By Dave on
2006 BMW 5 Series 530xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Bought the xi AWD version a few months ago and it drives like a dream. Incredible machine. Test drove Audi and Lexus but BMW still leads the pack. You must drive to believe. Full 4 year/50K mile maintenance was the kicker for me.
Steptronic 6 gear clutchless is amazing. What a thrill to use! Adaptive steering improves already impressive feel and handling.
Cupholders and storage are less than adequate. Tinted windows would be much more preferable to the sun shades.
