My first BMW & love it!

2007 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I just purchased my BMW after reading several reviews on here. iDrive seemed to be the biggest issue for people, I figured it out in about 20 minutes and I like it personally. The car itself is wonderful. I was warned about the motors because they weren't BMW in previous years. In 2007 they put BMW motors to support the power of the car. I feel like I'm driving a sports car and my husband and I look for reasons to drive it all the time. We have had 2 Lexus & this was a fantastic change. It's a much more exciting drive. It's smooth & very roomy for taller people. There is hardly any storage, but was told, you can have storage or a quiet ride. I hardly hear any road noise. I will buy another!!
Headlights move with steering wheel, idrive, very comfortable seats, quiet ride, very sporty feel, great power! Once you floor it, press a little harder, button under pedal that will send it flying! Gas mileage is great can average around 30+ mpg
Must pay attention when backing out, very limited sight in back window. Cup holders not great, climate control could stand to be improved.
