Always can be better

2010 BMW 5 Series 535i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Great road/touring car! Have owned a total of five BMW's. Almost as fun as our Porsche! Pretty good in the snow. Turbo makes driving real fun! No reliability problems after a year.
X-Drive performs as expected, especially in bad weather. Manual sport mode livens things up. Get better than advertised gas mileage (25-28 mpg). "Night Vision" is a significant plus, but there is a learning curve, need to have human/animal ID warning light on screen.
Larger digital dashboard numbers, please. Bring the dipstick, drain plug, and temperature gauge back! Navigation system is moderately hard to use, amazing number of little quirks that result in misdirection on the road. Identify water features by name and provide more street names per view.
