Awesome! — One of the nicest cars on the market and very fun to drive. Although maintenance can be a little expensive, it's worth every penny! You won't be disappointed with this car and you'll have a blast driving it wherever you go!

Wow! We Use The Car For Everything But Will Put Commuting As Primary Use... — This is the best car I've ever owned or driven. If you want performance and luxury blended with safety, I highly recommend this as your daily or distance driver. I've been on several LONG distance trips in this car and my wife and I prefer to drive rather than fly now...enough said!

Curve King — it is an amazing car so powerful and so steady maxium grip at turns and ability to enter curves with very high speeds, but the problem of the BMW 528 I series too much temperature trouble at summer time, but amazing

Bmw 528i Smashes Shane's V6 Mustang — performance-0-100 in under 20 seconds, good braking, tight handling, a little tail-happy, but suprisingly controllable. build qaulity- excellent, german made door trim is the only thing starting to fall apart in this 10 year old car. appearance - gorgeous car even though its 10 years old it is one of the better looking cars on the road. cost of ownership - great gas mileage 28 highway, 23 city (ish) when cruising the mpg meter is capable of staying above 40. Fun factor - Two thumbs way up, never bored in this car

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Sexy!!! — BMW 528i, 2.8L 6 Cylinder. I suppose it rocks after stepping up from a camry, It goes pretty good for a family car. Its great fun to drive, especially when the traction control is turned off. Would recommend a BMW to anyone looking for a nice car.

E39 540ia — This would have to be one of my favorite cars. Big body with a powerful V8 and 6 spd. This car had more power than most cars on the road and it was a 4 door. Not as powerful as an M5 but enough.

Dream Car — I have had this car for fifteen years and still in love with it! It drives great, has 175k miles on it and it has great gas mileage on the freeway and roads. I still have people ask me about the car as it will become a classic one day.

Best Of The Best — The E39 is simply the best looking sedan ever made. It is clean, tight, classy and sporty yet can still tote the family around. Make sure you buy one equipped with a sport package (you can tell by the shadow line trim as opposed to chrome and the 3 spoke steering wheel vs the non-sport 4 spoke). Handling is incredible in the 528i. Although it doesn't have the ponies of the 540i, it is quite a ride and you make up for it in fuel economy. Maintenance is expensive (unless you do it yourself). All in all, the best car I have ever owned for the first 120k miles!!!!
