2011 BMW 5 Series Long Term Road Test

2011 BMW 528i: Adult Ride

October 13, 2010


Last night was my first time in our new long-term 2011 BMW 528i. And for once, the drive wasn't long enough.

I had almost forgotten how much I love the 5 Series. This morning it occured to me that this is the perfect car for a grown-up road trip. Think Napa, Lake Tahoe, not Disneyland or Sea World.

For a woman, it's like putting away that oversized purse full of crackers and crayons, and going back to a shiny black alligator clutch.

Don't get me wrong minivan, I still love you. But my heart truly belongs to a BMW sedan.
