5th 5 Series Owned:
The exterior styling of the new F10 550i (M Sport), while more modern than classic, is extremely eye catching and contemporary. It's an excellent refinement of the Flame Surfacing started under Chris Bangle in 2004.
Versus the 2005-2010 (E60) 5 Series the 2011 (F10) 5 Series is a wholly more cohesive and less polarizing body style that exudes luxury and a bit of aggression while in motion.
The interior offers beautiful materials, a perfect driving position and styling that is more inviting than previous generations.
The incredible array of useful tech features, adaptable chassis and drivetrain as well as overall performance are simply incredible.
A remarkable package!
*Gen Four i-Drive
*User adjustable ride, steering feel, throttle response and handling

*Comfort Access is a revelation
*Perfect blend of performance and luxury in a family sedan.
*I could go on........
*Higher gas mileage is always a bonus. I'm averaging 24mpg with the turbo charged V8 in mixed driving.
*More interior storage for driver would also be welcomed.
*Cup holders that hold something bigger than a Starbuck's cup
That's about it really. It's 98% perfect!
