Picked up a new 2015 BMW 535i M Sport and it has met all and exceeded my expectations.
I pulled into a parking garage today to hear the attendant comment "that's one sweet ride", enough said! The m sport suspension puts the BMW back into this 535 and the 300hp engine does not get any sweeter (unless you're ready for the uncompromising m5 and the extra costs as well) the exterior with the m sport lines, 19 inch wheels and blacked out grille accentuate this sedan perfectly and the high tech interior is right on the money, multi contour seats just don't get any better and the heads up driver display is cutting edge.I have owned a mercedes e55 audi s4 and m3 and this vehicle tops the list
This car is hands down the best vehicle I have owned. Past cars include: 1968 BMW 2002, my first auto, BMW Z3, Porsche 911 2004, 4 or five E-Class Mercedes. The engineering and attention to detail are astounding. The 4 cylinder engine is smooth, quite and has tremendous power. Gas mileage on my commute Westchester to Manhattan is 23 to 24 mpg. It's fun to drive and is head and shoulders better than my E-350.
The 535i xdrive gives you great performance/comfort and awd capability. I purchased it in December 2014 and had no problem getting through one of the worst winters in the Northeast with the standard all season tires. I have had several suv's and can honestly say I don't miss them. I've put 24,500 on it with no problems. I've been to the dealer twice for oil changes and cabin filter which were included in the free maintenance program ( 4yr/50k miles ).
I treated myself after having an VW Passat, Acura TL, Acura RL, I decided to buy a BMW528i. It is by far absolutely the best car I have ever driven. I looked at the MB 350 and the Lexus 350 and came back to this sweet vehicle. My husband and I race to be first at the driver"s seat. He drives a old Toyota truck, now he is considering a BMW SUV. I am happy every time I look at or get in my vehicle. Add to that the awesome gas mileage and it is as close as you can get to perfection.
Bought the car one year ago. Was shocked at what I paid for it, but awed by how wonderful the car is. We had test driven an A6 and a GS350. both the Audi and Lexus had too low a ground clearance to begin with (we need to go on private gravel road and put a crown on the road. I didn't need a high priced road grader to take it back off) We found the GS350 with AWD drove like you would expect a truck to feel. We were not impressed by the Audi dealers around us (within 60 mi) There is more road noise in the 535i than we had with the Buick Lacrosse we owned, probably because of the run flat tires. I would rather have radials and a spare. BMW really needs to add remote start to its vehicles! Otherwise, I think the car is fantastic. Would do it again but without the run flat tires.
