2010 BMW 5 Series 535i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


The best car you can own if the roads you travel every day are glass smooth. The car handles as well as BMW should and the pick up and braking is outstanding. The issue is in the electronics as for most of the owners i know, the engine light goes on and off at times, the AWD malfunction light goes off at times, once i had a turbo fail light go off and go away after a car restart. It becomes annoying that a 50k car has little bugs that were not taken care off pre-production. I have the M package and the wheels and tires that got damaged by NYC roads are not available for purchase in USA, must be ordered from Germany which takes 4 to 6 weeks. i have been waiting for a front right rim 4wks.

Best Features

Pick up, braking, navigation, seats and the body. The M package looks cool but at a price. All options are cool but not available in US since no dealer orders cars with options to minimize exposure of owning it.

Worst Features

Parts for cars must be locally available for this car, BMW has to bring the parts here for the car and not take 2 month to ship them here.
