2011 BMW 5 Series Long Term Road Test

2011 BMW 528i: Perfect for Airport Duty

January 13, 2011


I was tasked with running to the airport to fetch an editor returning from the Detroit auto show. With a quick scan of the long-term car board, I instantly knew which car to pick. Our 2011 BMW 528i.

I figured after the editor's 3am wakeup call, hours spent in coach, not to mention the fact that he just finished a five-day stint in snowy Detroit, he'd appreciate the luxury of the roomy 5 Series. I know if I were in his place, I'd love for someone to show up and chauffeur me in this car.

It has a smooth, quiet ride so he could leave behind memories of screaming babies in coach, seat heaters to soothe his aches from his travels and a really comfortable seat to sink into.

But when I pulled up to the curb and he dropped his rollaway into the trunk he said he wanted to drive. Oh well.
