Delighted with first BMW
By FB on


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


This is my first BMW and we waited until the 5 was available in AWD before taking the plunge. After an initial issue with a too-dark Nav screen that was replaced, this car has been fantastic. The bottom line is that driving goes from being a chore to being something I look forward to every day because of this car. And I have lost count of how many people have commented on how great it looks! BMW, I hope you never stop making manual transmission cars like this one. And Bluetooth makes using the cell in the car so much easier and safer (not safe in an absolute sense, but safer if you have to be on the phone). BTW, the cupholders may look corny, but they actually hold cups quite well!

Best Features

Delightful manual transmission, great gas mileage, Bluetooth, exterior looks, great handling, uncluttered interior, lots of interior space, Heads-Up Display

Worst Features

Make the CD player and changer play MP3s, make the navigation touch-screen, keyless ignition.
