Engine Failure
By Bimmer-R on


2008 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


This is not the best of BMW, this is my 2nd 5 Series and I expected better. Fuel leak twice, engine failure twice, car stopped once, engine rattling as if it was going to die most often than any used cheap car. Worst production twin turbo of BMW. Engine runs fast if it does not go nuts. I highly recommend people to buy another model with no turbo for now. My first one had the whole seat replaced, whole sun roof replaced, engine barrier replaced...this one had engine failure twice, disaster memory seat program, I hate to say this but I will really have to be convinced to buy another BMW this will go back to them! Do not learn it the hard way... read the other comments and you will know why.

Worst Features

Change the engine! Worst ever production of BMW twin turbo! They know the recall on the engine problem and still they close their eyes blindly!
