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


The car is fantastic. Looked/test drove numerous luxury SUVs and crossovers - none compare. The car is incredible to drive never reminded you are driving a WAGON. Have all avail packages and most options aside from heads up display and performance tires. Comfort seats are unbeatable for long drives. Find the interior space is perfect. front and rear seats are very comfortable and incredibly supportive, and storage space is plentiful. Finally, have to say my wife and I found the iDrive to be far easier to master than expected having read the poor reviews. X-drive is great especially in snow in rain conditions. Have had some silly QC issues that should not take place in a car of this caliber,

Best Features

Handling/road manners - superb. Very comfortable ride doesn't interfere with road feedback, all wheel drive, panoramic sunroof, POWER-the torque is awesome, included maintenance that covers EVERYTHING.

Worst Features

Navigation route update is slow, some silly quality control issues, Logic-7 sound system while nice could be better. Seat bolsters don't inflate/deflate automatically when cornering as in sedan - why is that???
