The Best One So Far
By R ME FLYER on
Vehicle
2008 BMW 5 Series 535xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
The 535xi is my 5th BMW and I got all the bells and whistles. The previous 4 were great, but pre-iDrive; this one is remarkable in comparison. A few post-purchase minutes with the salesman and using the iDrive was easy, don't know what the iDrive fuss is about. Great handling, acceleration and braking. The first 2k miles have been trouble free and a pleasure. Gas mileage was better than expected, 22-26 mpg so far and the turbos do make a difference when you want to pass or merge. I drove MB E350, Lexus GS 350, and Infiniti M45 and the Bimmer was my hands down choice.
Favorite Features
Acceleration and handling. The audio system is pretty good as well. This is a driver's car!
Suggested Improvements
Please get rid of the cheesy cup holders. Move the add'l plug-in power sources and iPod plug to the front dash. Add storage overall in the passenger compartment. The nav system is not as good as the competition's factory installed systems. And the days of three digit trip odometer are over.
