2008 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Was considering several cars like Mercedes C350, E350, Lexus GS350, Infiniti G35, BMW 528i sport. After driving all of them, the 535i with sport, premium, navi, xenon blew them all away. Great transmission with 2 sport modes and paddle shifters. Car is glued to the road. Active suspension almost eliminates body roll. IDrive is functional just takes some time to learn all the menus. Picks up speed instantly, no turbo lag. Very fun to drive. My 1st BMW and now I know why its called ultimate driving machine. Other premium brands don't come close in road feeling.
Sport transmission, handling, interior. Display displays track titles in multiple languages, power.
Exhaust noise should be deeper like 550, needs more storage space inside, cd changer should be standard
