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.

Best Features

The way it's put togeather, quality all the way. They certainly have their joy stick down right, very intuitive.

Worst Features

None or I'm a little early in the process.

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. Butch Pope
