First Five Series

2011 BMW 5 Series Sedan 528i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 8A)

Review

Recently moved up from an 06 330i. Really like the ride and quiet of the new 528 but does not handle as well as 3 series. Excellent highway car and still good in the curves but some of the sportiness is gone as a tradeoff for comfort.

Refined, Capable, & Liveable

Review

I gave up on BMW when the first i drive and Bangle-but cars came out, but am glad to report the new 5 series has returned to the fold of the prior generation cars with graceful lines and intuitive logical controls. The i drive is easy to use now after a few minutes of familiarization, actually quite fun. Quality is good and fuel economy is remarkable, getting 24 in town and 30-plus highway with a light foot- near diesel/hybrid territory! The ride with the run flats is very good now, and the car has a level of quiet and refinement that's almost too good (a little sport exhaust maybe?) Performance with only 240HP is quick with the 8 speed, but I wasn't looking for a rocket. Very Pleased!!!

Review

This is my 3rd BMW so far, the new 5 series is spacious, comfortable and a joy to drive. The 8-speed automatic transmission (with the sports option on the steering wheel) is a joy to use and provides a very smooth ride. I drive the car in Lebanon on twisted mountain roads. The car is very well balanced. Handles turns and corners with precision.

No homelink garage door opener in $50k car

Review

I bought 2011 BMW 528i last week, it runs great, looks great, I liked it until today. I thought, let's program the homelink garage door opener in my 50k car, only to find out that it is not included. Any other surprises, BMW?

European trip with BMW

2011 BMW 5 Series Sedan 528i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 8A)

Review

To drive this car on Autobahn (German Highway) was a joy. It's what its built for. I picked my car up in Munich (through European Delivery Program) and drove for 2 weeks in Europe covering 5,151 km (over 3,000 miles) and 12 different countries. Like an Amazing Race, so 3 of us practically lived in it. Went 143 mph while passing German cops. Drove on Nurburgring (German racing track), great handling of a 143 turns. Crossed Alps via Stelvio Pass. I don't mind driving for 24 hrs and this BMW is one of the joyful and comfortable machines to do it. It's more of a comfort oriented then performance.

Review

This post Bangle-era 5 Series is the best so far from BMW! Definitely fun to drive and has adequate power for most drivers. Interior space is very nice. It doesn't come with a BOSE system but the improved 12-speaker stereo system from Harmon Kardon is decent. Bluetooth is standard for this car.

This post-Bangle era 5 Series is much improved in almost ever category. The new 5 series has added horsepower than previous models, look much better, and has a roomy interior.

Could Be Better

Review

Not a fan of run-flat tires--ride is harsh--doesn't take bumps well. Car does not feel as solid as my 2003 325ci. Steering is on the numb side.

Can't be happier with the new 5. Decided to wait for the new design and it was worth the wait.
