2007 BMW 5 Series 550i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I just purchase my first BMW (2007 550i) I test drove the 528 and did not like the lack of power. The 550i is a BEAST and is a dream to drive, I can't stay home, I take the longest way home and the acceleration is orgasmic. I will never drive another car other than a BMW. Worth every penny. Not sure what my gas mileage will be yet, but so far not bad for a V8 engine.


Best Features

Bluetooth, iDrive, the stylish design, sport package, the V8 360hp. Premium sound and navigation.


Worst Features

Like everyone else, there is a lack of storage space. Otherwise hard to find fault with this vehicle.

2007 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Wow - what fun to drive. I wish I had the extra power of the 550 or the 535, but this car has it when you need it. I like to drive it in Drive Sport as it really hugs the road, and gives me the extra boost of speed.


Best Features

Styling, road handling, seats, BMW quality.


Worst Features

iDrive could be better thought out. Car lacks some of the bells and whistles you'd think would be in a car of this caliber. Internal storage is nil. I can't even find a place to put my sunglasses.

2007 BMW 5 Series 525xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Bought my Certified Pre-Owned with 18K miles. Mileage is only mentioned a few times in the reviews, so I thought I would confirm the reports of excellent mileage ... I'm getting 24.5 to 25.5 around the Wash DC beltway, about 70/30 highway/streets. I'm looking forward to a road trip to confirm the high highway reports. The comfort of the seats is also amazing.


Best Features

Handling, seats, sunroof, overall excellence -- a joy!


Worst Features

Still trying to learn climate and radio control via I-drive -- I'd prefer traditional control of these functions.

Review

Best car I have ever owned and truly a pleasure to drive. I commute 100 round trip daily and I look forward to driving this car even after 3 years and 55k miles. Corners like a dream, gets up and goes fast enough but keeps you out of trouble. I have every option available except the night vision and active cruise control. You must have the sports package as the looks and performance can't be matched. Bought this car new with only 3 miles on it.


Best Features

Seats, handling on corners, sound system, navigation, smooth quiet ride at high freeway speeds.


Worst Features

I don't like the view from the front of the car. BMW could have jazzed this up a bit or kept the 02 profile. Side profile looks hot though especially with good set of wheels. Idrive is ok but having climate control in there is bit cumbersome for a simple adjustment.

Review

This is really a great car. It has so many features - even after having it for a couple of months, I'm still finding new features all the time. I just found that there are 2 compartments in the arm-rest. I've been told the lower compartment is to keep drinks cool. This car drives great, is very comfortable and smooth, and with all it's function, it looks great too. I've driven a 3 series before but with 2 kids and car seats, the 5 series is definitely the right size.


Best Features

Sun roof, Idrive console, bluetooth, auto-sensor wipers, controls on the steering wheel are great, aux input to play music from Iphone, roomy trunk.


Worst Features

Climate control should be buttons and not controlled through the menu. Right and left turn switch has 2 settings (1 that blinks 3 times and the other that keeps blinking until you make your turn) - I've found this feature hard to get used to and would rather it was just one setting like other cars.
