Our long-term 2011 BMW 528i celebrated its 20,000 mile anniversary over the Labor Day weekend. And this milestone means that it is near the end of its service at InsideLine.

Which is a shame, because I'm starting to warm up to it after I drove 350 miles over the long weekend. You can eliminate most of the drivability hesistation and surge problem with the paddle shifters. I'll put it in Sport mode and flick the paddles up and down through the ZF 8-speed auto gearbox. That's fun.

And although many people deride the new 5-series chassis as a creampuff, to me it still has a superb ride/handling balance and is superior to both our long-term Hyundai Equus and Infiniti M56.
