Wagon is the way to go
By Ferko on


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


I just came back from Europe where a large percentage of cars is wagon. I was looking for something different than a sedan, and definitely not an SUV. (I own one). I was leaning toward an A4 Avant with the sweet 2.0 l turbo engine. When I saw the 530xi I bought it the same day afternoon. The balance of the car is so unique that I don't know of anything else in this price range. It has been a pure delight.

Best Features

The engine is a propulsion marvel not because of its power (there are more powerful engine in this range), but again its balance and sound. Handling. Panorama roof and idrive. Build quality.

Worst Features

Not enough storage nooks and I got the old style iDrive controller knob, instead of the new design (a la Audi)
