I'm obsessed with my BMW

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


I'm really loving this car! The one thing people should know is that the iDrive is great! It so isn't something you have to use every time you drive. Instead it is a way to customize your settings, i.e. air flow, radio stations, what part of the seat you want heated (back, bottom, or both). Then, you can control those things just like you would normally, on the dash (or the steering wheel). I was originally thinking if I had to keep doing this computer mouse thing I would be sure to get in an accident but it is really a streamlining of controls.

Best Features

Heated steering wheel, heated seats, interior red glow night light to very subltly light the interior, like an airplane. Trunk size is fabuous. I wish I got comfort access and satellite radio.

Worst Features

iPod connection.
