Pros

Great driving machine!!  Handles well, performs well. Love this car.

Cons

Very expensive upkeep.  A set of run flat tires for it cost $1200.  Even a simple oil change is 200 due to the synthetic oil.  Also needs premium gas and gas prices are terrible.

Awesome Driving Car. — Like everything, love the cost of maintaining it. It looks good it is very comfortable. Has heated seats that are great in the winter., comfortable leather seating. The car drives so smooth you hardly know you are moving. In fact, I have had 8 speeding tickets in 2 years as a result of the how smooth this car drives. Car is fun to drive and it always turns heads!

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

Awesome Car To Own — This is my 5th BMW. Awesome ride - smooth and quick. The engine is very powerful. The sound system is thrilling. Features that I like - Bluetooth, extended seats, climate package, parking distance system Cons - mileage ; not bad compared to other gas guzzlers

You Won't Be Sorry. — This car is pure pleasure to drive. Strong and responsive especially with the Michelin Sport AS tires I just put on it. It handles so tight even at 100 mph. You will never be sorry you bought BMW. Jump in and get ahead of the crowd.

Bmw 5 Series Is Everthing It's Cracked Up To Be... — Cupholders suck! The I-drive takes some getting used to. Mileage is good, I average 27 mpg, car handles very tight. It's a very good car and I would buy another BMW. Service department treats you like a queen! Havent had to pay for a thing!!

Would Recomened It For A Elderly Man Or Woman — There is no leg room in the front seats, its a over priced luxury car that lacks horsepower and torque. The I drive system screen is deep inside of the front panel and is really hard to see. The steering wheel blcks the speedomeeter when your driving

Always Wanted One..sp I Did!! — BMW's are great but when they go wrong they can be a pain, buy a diesel as petrols are thirsty, stay away from high tech ones, you will sit at a BMW dealler more than in the drivers seat. these now look dated as 2011 model looks the biz

Love The Car, Now I Want An M5. :-) — I love this car, how it feels, handles & accelerates. Braking is awesome and spent a day on the track with a pro on how to drive really really fast. The only think that bugs me about the car are the squeaky door seals. It is annoying.

Can still hang with newer cars in this class

Cons

Expensive upkeep

Lean Mean Teutonic Fighting Machine — Top notch sport sedan, plenty of power at all revs, excellent brakes and solid handling for a two ton ride. Nice seats, could use a few more features for a car of this price range. 24mpg on the highway, gas guzzler around town. Expensive to maintain, needs good mechanic. 55kmiles in less than 2 years
