2007 BMW 5 Series Wagon 530xi 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I bought the car special order from Germany with a 6 speed manual. The car has been exactly what I've been expecting, sporty, spacious and with all the luxury you expect with a BMW. The car has been exceptionally reliable with 60k miles without any mechanical or electrical issues. I only wish NA would have the choice for a M5 6 spd Wagon. I am quite sad to see the wagon discontinued when the GT model came to Canada. The car is a perfect family mover.


Best Features

Handling and the seats with the sports package are the most worthy option I've chosen. It comes withe the sports seats, M steering wheel, upgrades rims, trim kit/skirt, fog lights. The other main reason for the purchase was that this car was the only high end wagon/large car that had a option for a manual transmission.


Worst Features

With the addition of the sport package a roof rack cannot be used. This is typically not a problem since it is a wagon with plenty of space. The pass through allows for skiis but will eliminate the option of a 5 passenger.

Review

I'm a long term Audi owner (have had six), who decided to look around when they dropped the free maintenance. I test drove the new Audi A6 wagon and the BMW 530xiT. The BMW did just about everything better than the Audi and the monthly lease rate was better. The choice was a no-brainer! The 530xiT ride and handling are first rate, as is the build quality. The engine is exceptionaly smooth but could use a bit more low end torque. Winter performance, especially with snow tires, is exceptional. The iDrive is not as scary as expected but could be better. I like my BMW so much that we replaced my wife's Audi with a BMW 530xiT too!


Best Features

Ride and handling. Front seat comfort. Fuel economy is excellent at 27 mpg average.


Worst Features

More engine torque but I understand that this has been fixed in the 2008s. Standard audio system could be better.

Review

One of best purchase experiences of many cars over 40 years of driving. Car has its problems, mostly electrical. Especially iDrive is a bad idea. Poor execution. Driver's seat adjusts forward and up on its own. Screen display blanks, iDrive inoperable, no GPS, no radio, no access to system functions or warnings. Reprogrammed multiple times, reverts to same problems in short time. Electronic key replaced 3 times in attempts to cure Comfort Access issue. Nothing.


Best Features

Versatility of wagon. Mileage good. Driving position.

Review

Great car. You will not be disappointed. Solid handling, fun to drive, great stereo and I love the Sirius radio. A driver's car. What more could you ask for? Will definitely be a repeat customer. Take the plunge.


Best Features

Gas pedal.


Worst Features

Wish song titles would show on display without messing with iDrive. Other than that, A plus.

Bought the car on military sales overseas, nice price with a 3k rebate (just under 53K fully optioned, no HUD/auto cruise but NVD, etc). No glitches, drives wonderfully.


Best Features

Drive quality, iDrive, contour seats.


Worst Features

Better colors - a nice red, please, 3rd seat, auto tailgate down on key fob.
