2009 BMW 5 Series 535i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Driven the car for just under 3,000 miles and it's fantastic so far. Heated seats and steering wheel combined with X-Drive have been excellent during this active New England winter. Best driving car I've ever owned, and interior annoyances (lack of storage space, cup holders) are acceptable given the driving dynamics, all-weather aplomb and overall content of the car.
Real time traffic information is great, but only seems to apply to highways. Upgraded stereo is highly recommended. Handling, pick-up and driving dynamics. Currently averaging 23 mpg, excellent for a 300 hp car. Fit and finish are first-class.
More interior storage room. More versatile cup holders. More flexibility for non-iPod mp3 players.
