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

Review

Want a comfortable car? How about one that can go from a cruise, to a race in seconds? This is the one you want. Why sacrifice comfort, convenience, or practically for pure driving pleasure (like Porsche), when you can have it all? I drove a bunch of Audis, checked out a bunch of Mercs - but man, after having another BMW, you can't change to anything else. Only Germans can make REAL cars. I'm biased, and some people don't really care about the driving experience. But if you do, German cars, and in this class, especially BMW is the only game in town.

Best Features

The twin-turbo, beast of an engine. The technology - bluetooth, iPhone hookup, amazing sound, the best seats in the business, handling, the ride, the look, the feel.

Worst Features

Yea - more interior cubbies (like sunglass holder like my X5 had), and better cup holders would be good. But we don't buy cars for Cup Holders, do we? Germans certainly don't MAKE cars for cup holders... they make cars to DRIVE! And boy, do they ever.
