Still Happy with it after a month of driving
By michaeljdiesen on


2011 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 8A)


I got my 2011 BMW528i about a month ago and wanted to drive it a while before commenting on it.
I purchased it as a replacement to my 1998 BMW528i that I had for 13 years!
Now for the review:
The interior is luxurious!
The iDrive is new for me but after a few weeks of getting used to it, I like it.
Why no touch screen though?
The stereo is nice but could be a little better.
The front seats seem cramped to me, maybe narrow the center console a bit?
The automatic transmission seems sluggish until you shift into sport mode.
The exterior is flawless.
I haven't noticed any problems with the run flat tires but have been warned by many people to expect it.

Best Features
