2008 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Had a 911, have 3 kids, needed something comfortable for the family. Looked at the 550i sport and thought I'd get too many tickets. The 535i sport is just a little more "real world", but still handles like a proper sport sedan. The xi models understeer more than I'd like, and the sport package on the i model is a true bmw sport package (suspension). The twin turbo motor gives you v8 torque and horsepower, I suspect that the ratings of 300 each is understated. Saving 10 grand over the 550 sport was worth it.

Best Features

IDrive(it's easy), base stereo is very good, sport seats, 6spd tranny w/ paddles. Car is very luxurious coming out of a 911. They should offer M suspension on the 535i. A thoroughly enjoyable car all the way around.

Worst Features

M suspension option w/ 535i engine... 535i wagon w/ sport. I think x drive takes away from the cars handling.
