Compared to the Acura TL and Lexus GS, the pricing structure for the 2013 5 Series is rather complex. Where fully loaded models from Lexus and Acura maintain sensible sticker prices, opting for a 5 Se
Regardless of drivetrain – rear-wheel (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) – the 2013 BMW 5 Series family provides a balanced approach to over-the-road performance. And when equipped with AWD, BMW's mid-size offering is blessed with "all-weather" performance, going tough when the going gets tough.

"I was looking for a mid-sized luxury sport sedan. Test drove Mercedes E550, Jaguar XF, Audi A6 and Lexus GS 460. Was open to buying any one of those. But, the BMW was just simply the best. Have had it 2 years and have had no problems to date. The only mild negative is the stereo sound. Its above average, but should be better. The best feature is just how perfect it balances luxury and sportiness."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 49,000overall rating 5 of 10rating details
Pros: "I believe the safety features are good."
Cons: "Run flat, front bumper too fragile"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7
"I almost hit someone in the REAR because I gently hit gas pedal and nothing happens. I press a little harder and the car takes off like a rocket. I am willing to bet that some day I will hit someone in the rear. Fo this reason, I would not recommend this car. By the way, I owned one (5 series) for 14 years and this was the reason I did not buy lexus. I wanted to stick with the evil I know. Hopefully, this wont be a little too much evillag, lag, lag"
