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


Wow - what a car. took delivery on 11/05. It was the first one on the showroom floor. I had a 330xi before and this just blows it away. The ride is super smooth and much more powerful than you would guess. Plenty there to get you in trouble with the State Patrol. I live in the Rocky Mountain high country and this car can go anywhere and do anything in any sort of weather. You don't even notice the X- Drive handling the car it's balanced so well. Put a good set of snow tires on - Blizzaks- and you're good to go. IDrive is a breeze for the computer literate set. Set it and forget it.

Best Features

X-Drive, smooth acceleration, Steptronic, satellite radio, automatic wipers, heated seats/steering wheel, VERY roomy trunk. Great handling.

Worst Features

None I can think of except maybe a supercharger - which will never be available. Dinan upgrades. 18" wheels might be nice.
