My first Bimmer
By Wayne Siegel on


2007 BMW 5 Series 530xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Having owned an E430 4-matic and Audi A8L prior to this, I'm getting used to the smaller car. The iDrive system is terrible compared to MMI of Audi. Acceleration is a bit slow but handling is awesome in all weather conditions. Interior finish is a bit 'cheap' with too much vinyl and tacky plastic buttons for this price-point! Fold down rear seats, Bluetooth and headup display are nice features. Getting 19-20 mpgs driving around northern NJ. I look forward to 7- series xi next time.

Best Features

Bluetooth, headup display, quietness of ride and superb handling.

Worst Features

The iDrive requires too many maneuvers to switch functions. CD changer is inaccessible deep in glove box. Not enough upfront storage. Cup holders in way of large front passengers. Delay in exterior courtesy lighting like Audi/Benz would be helpful.
