2009 BMW 5 Series 535i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
The 2009 535i with x drive is an incredible driving machine. This car with a 6 speed manual transmission is a "monster" to drive. The engine's power will be evident as soon as you put your foot down on the pedal. The navigation system has been upgraded with several "short cut" buttons surrounding the iDrive. It is a pleasure to use once you have been shown the basic functions. It is logical and easy to use. Since my 535i xDrive was the first of the 2009s to get here I currently have 2000 miles driven and no problems yet. The handling is precise. Gas mileage is around 21MPG city. A little higher on the highway. It could use more storage but it is not a major issue.
