2011 BMW 5 Series 550i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

This is my 3rd v8 5 series. while less sporty than the e39 model, this model more than offsets the reduce road feel with smooth performance. the engine and sport auto transmission work great together - acceleration is effortless at any speed. the dynamic suspension is very good and there is a visible difference between the settings. significantly more luxurious than prior models. the idrive is much more responsive and synchs up quickly when starting the car. emailing directions to the navi saves a lot of time too. still getting used to the active cruise control, but appreciate the collision detection feature. overall a great ride for both driver and passengers.

Favorite Features

engine seat comfort idrive - can customize the whole car m sport look

Suggested Improvements

cup holders are a bit small gas mileage is weak (18 mixed, versus 20 in e60 and 21 in e39)
