2006 BMW 5 Series 530xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


This car has styling which you can sum up by saying, either you like it or you don't. The Continental tires are horrible. The front tires lose traction easily. Two weeks ago I checked the pressure, the tires lost 15 psi. The iDrive is more of a hassle than help. Also the brakes are pitiful. There is a lot of brake dust, (The dealer said that they are the best brakes in the industry) and there is a huge shock when the car stops. I don't care that they are the best brakes if they have so much dust. I can not even take it off.

Best Features

Comfort, stero system, exterior styling, exaust note

Worst Features

Eliminate the iDrive, make the brakes better, and put michelins on, and eliminate the first gear. (The AT skips through it usually)
