the ultimate family wagon
By gillie on


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


Quality of build is noted just openning the doors. Interior appointments are perfecto. Compares favorably to my M5 in terms of finish and the good feeling sitting in driver's seat engendors. The iDrive is simple, perhaps too simple for the auto critics. 28 mpg on the road is just fine. I wish it were a couple of thousand cheaper but this car is a keeper so the price is not so upsetting.

Best Features

Everything is so right about this car. Bluetooth and the power rear door are wonderful features. Handling and fuel economy are sweet extras.

Worst Features

BMW got it right with the 530 wagon. Bought for replacement for wife's SUV and I wish she would toss me the keys more often. Still pretty new but I can't think of anything to make it better.
