This is my 5th BMW and my second in the 5 series line.
I had 2010 535 and loved it.
I was going to order an X1 2.8 M-line, but the sales manager mentioned the arrival of new car the day I stopped by see my salesperson.
I was not looking for an ActiveHybrid 5 but an outstanding discount on top of the $4500 eco-credit sealed the deal.
The car has all the performance of a 535 and added fuel economy.
It is early yet but on the same circuit of driving I averaged 24 MPG with my 2010 535 and I am in the low 30s with this one.
With 25% better MPG and the eco-credit, the price difference between the regular 535 and hybrid disappears.
Check one out if you can.
They are difficult to find.
