Handles like a Hippo on Stilts

2011 BMW 5 Series 535i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
I upgraded from a 335 to the 535 cuz I wanted a bigger car. The transmission failed in the 1st month and they had to do a complete rebuild, which cost @ $3,000.
The car is pretty fast, but unfortunately, it exhibits way to much body roll and modest curves have to be eased into.
The interior quality is top-notch, if a bit bland.
Also, BMW will nickle and dime you for pretty basic features on a luxury car.
There are better cars out there. Choose Wisely.
