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


When I was shopping for a car, it was the technology that sold me on the 5-series. I was a little negative about iDrive, but I've found it to be easy to live with. I love how integrated everything is - my iPod and phone are a part of the car. The heads up display is excellent, especially with directions from the navigation system on the windshield. The night vision camera is just plain cool. It's an easy car to drive with confidence. I recommend driving a sport vs. non- sport package car before buying the sport because the ride is pretty firm.

Best Features

20-way seats, heated steering wheel, night vision, Logic7 stereo, heads up display, quiet on the road.

Worst Features

Wish you could pan around the map in the nav system display. I always feel like the front end is mad at me, and the back end looks like a Subaru. This design isn't as classy as the previous body style.
