My 4th 5 series but this one's the best
By michael on


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


I've owned a new 5 series every year, 2005-2008, but this one tops them all. The powerful engine "makes" the car. The new interior design, along with programmable satellite and FM radio stations is a plus. Addition of wood along the door makes it luxurious. The electronic transmission takes some getting used to, but no problem. You've got to get premium sound with HD radio option and Sirius radio if you are an audiophile and love crisp, clear, outstanding separation of sound. I don't like the standard wheels, but one can live with them instead of spending 4000 dollars on upgraded wheels and tires. The addition of leather around the console is also a nice touch.

Best Features

Twin turbo 300 hp engine; electronic transmission, additional wood along doors, presets for radio up front without going into iDrive, comfort access system is great, HD radio and premium sound stupendous, rear sunshades a must here in Florida. Daytime running lights great.

Worst Features

Put some nice wheels on this 57000+ car - it's a shame they are so plain and chintzy, place cupholders somewhere else (I've complained about this time and time again).
