2005 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I bought mine with 15000 miles on it. I also owned a previous certified pre-owned 2000 (I can't get myself to puchase a new one). While I enjoy the "sedan" feel, it is not as responsive as my previous 5 series and also my wife's 335i blows it away in the fun category. But with that said, I bought a sedan and I love it (120 mph feels like 45 mph)! I only wish the ergonomics were a tad better (cup holders, cruise, tilt, wipers, etc.). For the money, give me the beemer and keep the lexus/acura!

Best Features

heated stering wheel, bluetoothe, I-control, wipers, sport mode tranny.

Worst Features

Cup holders, come on deutshce engineers, thats your best?
