First Five Series
By eip on
2011 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 8A)
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.
Interiior ergonomics, mileage, ride and low noise level.
Trunk is much roomier than 3 series.
Bring back a bit more of the handling of the 3; Transmission shifter and elect. parking brake took some time to feel comfortable.
