2008 BMW 5 Series 528xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I now have 1500 miles and can say this was the best 1500 miles I've every driven. This is a driver's car not a typical American or Japanese built car. Don't complain about the cup holders, BMW doesn't expect you to drive the autobahn with anything but two hands on the wheel. Focus on the quality of the ride beyond the seat and gadgets, it is amazing. If you really want the power go for the 535 or to tour the country side with a 550. I find the 528 gives me what I need in power with a little economy unexpected, I'm averaging 22.4 mpg in the greater DC area.

Best Features

Simply put the drive; lux ride quality in a car that's under 50k, sport ride in a four door sedan with comfort, all wheel drive that puts you into the corner and keeps you there.

Worst Features

Voice recognition for the pure fact that I do want to keep both hands on the wheel.
