Cons

Too costly in Malaysia

Love At First Sight In Austria Sometime Falls In 2003 — The best machine at it's class man ever made on Earth at this present time. Superb sports car handling for an executive sedan with long wheelbase. Fair maintenance cost with efficient fuel consumption as I travel a lot. Thanks to my magnesium engine.

Pros

Design of headlamp

Cons

Muffler

25

Huh? — Nice body design like lines in the body. Nice headlamp design. Its starring at you. Nice acceleration but still slow for me. Better engine sound than M5. But mercedes engines have better sounds. Nice fuel consumption! One of my friend is jealous at me

Pros

It looks nice.

Cons

the gears are a bit slow.

25

Bmw — Its a luxyrious car with high comfort. The acceleration is good and the car has some coool features. Its always nice to drive a 6 geared car. The negative thing is that It uses much fuel, but its still a very fun car to drive!

Pros

the great 6 cylinder diesel

Cons

sloppy handling for a BMW

45

Brilliant In Sport Spec — Big diesel performance the best thing about the 530d. Build quality good; paint poor Handling not up to the "ultimate driving machine" moniker on the SE even with the optional sport suspension option; you need the Sport. Fuel consumption high 30s if you cruise; low 30s if you're pushing on [auto]. Plenty of seating room, but bot not the biggest.

Best All Round Transportation You Can Put Your Mitts On! — Performance - very adequate but not outrageous Build Quality - It's a Bimmer for g-ds sake Appearance - Orient Blue Mettalic... it looks gorgeous with the tan interior and tinted windows Cost of Ownership - most everything is still under warranty and the service from the dealer has been nothing short of outstanding Fun Factor - a blast to drive fast... the car gets smaller and tighter as you get to highway speeds but it's never frenetic or fidgety.

Drives amazing

Cons

Good Car For Any Situation — Its pretty fun to drive in any weather condition, but it can make do with a better soundtrack from the engine and more torque. It looks like every other 5-series too. The brakes are pretty good, but this is not a track car.

Bmw 545i Smg — Best car I've ever owned so far. SMG tranny makes for improved performance. Car performed exceptionally well at Pacific Raceway Proformance Racing school. I highly recommend taking this class as it does a great job of preparing you for driving extremely fast & safe. :-)

Great Car For The Driver — Performance - Great handling, brakes and acceleration for mid luxury car. Build quality - No problems or defects on my car. Nice comfort features and Logic 7 sound system is great. Looks- 545 has aggressive stance close to M5. Cost of ownership: (Only gas and winter tires). MPG Highway is 26, City 18, combined 22-23 Fun Factor - THE BEST, smooth acceleration, corners like a 3 series ( make sure you have sports package). i-drive issues are overrated. Once you make the intial settings you only use it of the radio.
