This is my 2nd BMW 530i (I also purchased a 2004) bought brand new each time. I really appreciated the 50K/4 year warranty for everything. Not that I really ever had any major issues with my cars. I'm writing this because after 3 years, I still love my car and plan on keeping this one. I'm about to purchase another new one, a 2011 535i as well. If you like to drive, you can't beat the BMW. I have two teenagers and the chance of driving my 2007 530i is exciting for them.
Did you ever purchase the 2011 535i? I've read there are some issues with the transmission in lower gears and a lot of annoying error messages. Thinking of waiting a while for the new model or getting a 2007. Any preference? Thanks!
