Great Performance, Great Value.
By So Cal D. on
2008 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Took ED and drove 600 miles across So. Germany in 3 days. Ably handled everything from tight country roads, windy descents to 100+ mph cruising & stop n go on the Autobahn. Averaged 26+ mpg. Coming from Acura TL, never thought I'd say "Good value" about a BMW, but the performance, ride, sound and handling are so amazingly solid while seating 4, it's difficult to imagine why you'd spend so much more for a little impractical Porsche (compare 0-60), or unpredictable Maserati GT. Great touring, great speedster and terrific looking. Easily translates from mellow to "let's go!" especially at the touch of the "Sport" button. Higher revs, immediate response.
Sport package; L7 stereo is tops; silent, stable yet nimble ride; road feel; efficient confidence.
None. Rear center armrest provides easily accessible and solid cup holders even for the folks up front.
