JUST A GREAT CAR
By mike650 on
2011 BMW 5 Series 535i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
This is my first BMW (not including my conv, which was my toy) and I must say it certainly beats my Benz and alll that preceeded it (Merecedes sinse 1986). Fast, quiet commfortable and a beauty. I have had it only two weeks but I just can't get over it. Before you drop $60M large try this thing, it's amazing.
The way it's put togeather, quality all the way. They certainly have their joy stick down right, very intuitive.
I will say the car is great also, but I own it two months and have only driven it two weeks. One of the computers in the 8 speed trans. went down, the dealer had to order it from
Germany, when it arrived it was damaged and the entire process began again.
Of Course I have a loaner car but to be without a new car that has 600 miles on it for 8 weeks (hopefully) is absurd. I advised BMW in the survey they sent me to no avail. I have not even heard from them (BMW North America).
other than the above, I have no complaints. I should have bought the other transmission. I did not even know the 8 speed was new. I never go with a first year car and I hope I am not sorry with this one.
