2011 BMW 5 Series Long Term Road Test


2011 BMW 528i: Like Buttah

January 10, 2011

When you get a phone call from the bossman, asking if you're willing to trade the car your driving for the BMW 528i, you say yes. I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to drive one of the marquee cars in the long term fleet.

It's ironic, because when I got into the office in the wee hours this morning, I read Oldhams post on how he liked the Outlanders seats, the car I traded with him. I thought the same thing about the Bimmers seats.

When I jumped into the seats to move the car into my driveway, I just melted into them. Wow, these things are some of the nicest seats I've experienced. Excellent cushion without being mushy. Great support for my thighs, the right amount of side bolstering without making me self-conscious of my love handles. I was really able to dial in the perfect driving position with the controls and really enjoyed driving this car around on Sunday.

Oldham just got back from Vegas and had an opportunity to really test out their comfort. Hopefully some time in the future I can get my hands on this car to really test them out.
