Fun to Drive - Nav System a Bit Off
By djinn on
2007 BMW 5 Series 530xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Great car - got the manual transmission - full loaded - fun to drive. iDrive complicated but easily learned - just need to sit with the book. Only downside thus far is Nav System - I found the maps to be outdated when compared with my Garmin C330 GPS - interestingly both BMW and Garmin get their maps from the same source (Navteq). Hoping a new and better map will come along soon. This is a peppy and fun car to drive. Can't wait to test the AWD in the winter. Highly recommend the stick shift.
Comfort seats, upgraded radio system, love the auburn interior (VERY rich with sapphire black).
Improve the nav system mapping software. (I'd still get the Nav system though.)
