2007 BMW 530xi

"The all wheel drive plants the car to the road under all conditions. I replaced the run flat tires with regular Michelin sport tires which improved the comfort of the ride. With the run flats on the car it rides very stiff and bumpy. The adaptive high intensity headlights are great. Love the baseball glove colored interior with the black sapphire paint. I have purchased about 40 cars in my lifetime of all makes and models, and this is the best of them all. Love this car."

Cons: "iDrive takes some getting used to"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"-- Grear Driver's car: outstanding performance and handling -- Comfortable, plenty of room, but very sporty feel -- Great power and pickup in 6 cyl. Very little turbo lag -- High quality fit and finish. Mine is 8 years old with 69K miles; people believe it is new -- Rear seats fold down creating tremendous cargo capacity -- Incredible performer in snow. I live in Boston area and have never been stuck -- 23mpg mixed driving -- Spare tire, not run flats Very few cons to car. What exists is minor, at least to me: -- iDrive takes some study to realize full benefits. Occasional drivers may find it hard to master -- Turning radius somewhat large"

"Love the car. Bought it with 30k coming off being a loaner car. Now with 120k and only replaced tires, spark plugs, wipers, and headlight bulbs. This is my 4th bimmer and all have had mediocre quality of interior. Leather shows wear quickly and cup holders are really cheap. Car drives wonderfully and has been really reliable. X drive is amazing in the snow."

"I purchased this vehicle, 528xi four months ago. This vehicle is awesome to look at and to drive. When I enter this vehicle it makes you want to drive forever. Took it on a road trip to Savannah, Ga. and the ride felt so comfortable and pleasurable that I wanted to keep driving. It handled great,smooth ride was incredible and to comment to gas mileage was simply money savings. I really wish I could afford a newer BMW but until then, I will ride the heck out of the vehicle. I simply love it."

"It's a shame they no longer make the 5 series wagon in the USA. It is an AWESOME vehicle The pickup is amazing and to me is a huge safety feature -- I am able to change lanes in heavy traffic with ease. Plus it is a really FUN car to drive. Very sporty, not bulky and awkward like a large SUV. The only negative is that it is very costly to maintain. I have put close to 5,000 in it this past year and it is only 5 years old with 83,000 miles. The all wheel drive feature saved me during a bad ice/snow storm last year."
