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

Review

The car is too heavy. It is a pain to drive in a "stop and go" traffic situation that we face in DC. Car hesitates to move from full stop. Once it is mobile, it takes off like a rocket and then it is fun to drive. The interior is poorly designed particularly location of controls. Placement of coffee mug holders is terrible. Inside console compartment is lousy. Technologically, no car can match it - just great car. Gas mileage is excellent. Steering is excellent and handling is superb. Ride is excellent and cabin noise is very low. Stereo is excellent. VOB service is good. BMW North America never responds to e-mails.

Favorite Features

Ride, technological advances, acceleration once car is mobile, handling, exterior look except back lighting design, cockpit design, quiet interior

Suggested Improvements

Location of control buttons. Coffee mug holders need to be located next to transmission handle. Need more room in the center console box, cut off the leather wall on passenger side on the console box
