First impressions - 500 miles driven - wonderful so far
By jim9757 on
2013 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Was looking for a smooth highway ride with nice handling.
This car came closer to my desires than Lexus, MB and Audi.
Very quiet and handles well on winding roads.
Soaks up road imperfections.
Will come back later with updates.
Edmunds projected price was right on target.
Everyone comments on how quiet it is inside and how well laid out the interior is.
Back seat is more roomy than I expected.
New car / leather smell.
Steering wheel vibrates slightly if you signal a lane change and someone is in your blind spot.
Multi contour seats - love the leg extension and adjustable lumbar support.
Built in garage door opener, voice activation, iphone synch, and navigation easy to use and very quick response time.
Love the 4 year no maintenance costs.
Somehow got an M branded steering wheel (no paddle shifts) and the feel is wonderful.
