2011 BMW 528i: The Good And The Bad

May 05, 2011

The Good: Our longterm 2011 BMW 528i's headlights are probably the best in our fleet. Bright, even light, color temperature is spot on (no blue to speak of), the cutoff has no murky rainbow nonsense. Just a wall of illumination. I wish all of our cars had headlights as good as these.

The Bad: The awful throttle response. Initial tip-in in particular is so irritatingly bad that it alone would prevent me from buying this car.
