After 4500 miles of fun driving

2005 BMW 5 Series 545i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


I chose European Delivery and picked
up my 545i in Munich, Germany. This
car is designed to be driven at 100
mph + on German autobahn. At over 100
mph on German autobahn, this car can
cruise at ease for hours like it’s
doing 60 mph. The 545 is deceivingly
fast and extremely quiet. The fit and
finish is excellent. With Sport
Package option, the car feels like it
can take corners better than a Porsche
Boxster. The state of art BMW
Valvetronic V8 engine is amazingly
smooth and responsive. The braking and
handling inspire confidence in the
driver. The cabin is isolated from
all outside noise. I prefer to hear
the engine and exhaust a little bit
more. BMW 545 is my 4 door sport car

Best Features

BMW 4.5L Valvetronic V8, Sport pkg (including Active Roll Stabilization, Sport suspension, Active Steering), Navigation System, Premium Sound - Logic 7, Xenon Adaptive Headlights.

Worst Features

The car should come with with normal Maximum Performance Tires instead of Run Flat Tires. Active Steering should be a stand alone option not included in the Sport Package option. A car like this should have zero noise going over bumps. The noise might be from door seal, leather rubbing.
