Better than I ever Thought

2011 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


So, I've only had my 535i for about a week, But so far it's been amazing! The finish and quality are beyond anything I've seen before, and I've had many E and S class sedans! Also considered the new E and the new M, and after driving the new 5, there was no question. The E is over a full second slower and interior felt cheap with too many hard angles. The M couldn't touch the flawless ride of the BMW (but it does have a better stereo!) In the end, the new 5 was the fastest, handled the best, and had the richest interior. You HAVE to see the anthracite wood. I REALLY regret not getting the sport package. For $2k, the wheels are much nicer, adjustable ride amazing, and seats are way better!

Best Features

The navigation and entire I drive with a high definition screen is dazzling on the eyes! The oyster on black color combo option is beautiful. The seats, dash and leather trim on the doors are light tan, and the carpets and lower part of the doors are black to hide any dirt and stains. Smart.

Worst Features

Definitely could use more interior storage space. Center compartment is tiny, glove compartment tight, and then just door pockets & a small compartment under the light knob. From a full stop at a light, transmission is a bit hesitant as it decides if you want to keep inching along or you wanna gun it
