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


I was looking for an all wheel drive sedan (5 passenger) to replace a G35 (rear wheel drive) for Chicago winters. I drove all the competitors from Audi A6 to Mercedes E350 to Infiniti M and so on. All of these were good cars. The BMW with its new twin turbo in-line 6 was the smoothest and best handling car, hands down. The luxury feel has been enhanced in the 2008. But when the need for speed is requested, this car responds with no hesitation. This is the best car I have owned.

Best Features

The L7 stereo upgrade is phenominal with the iPod hook-up. The Bluetooth marries with my Blackberry nicely and makes communications easy. AWD for those snowy Chicago winters.

Worst Features

More storage would be nice. The wheels are OK but there are better offered on 550.
