Sure If Someone Is Inetrested In Buying A Good Car Bmw 5 Series Is The Best Option — BMW 530 is the most amazing car in the whole world. I kept it for almost 18 months. Its beautiful, solid and very fast. You could easily say that this car is a head turner. I have sold it now but would surely consider buying it agagin sometime soon. cheers.

A Fun Car To Drive — Having purchased over 26 cars since the age of 15 (Hey,I'm from the Motor City, it's in our blood ;)) this is a passion that is a high priorty for me. Exceptional ride and handling dynamics, smooth and vigorous engines, premium interior furnishings, precision build quality, strong resale value. The BMW 5 Series earned its deserved reputation as the supreme midsize sport sedan almost on driving dynamics alone. Combined with standout styling, a well-appointed cabin and some of the most sophisticated technologies available in an automobile, the 5 Series offers something for everyone.

Bmw 530d — Questionable looks but unquestionable ability. The 530D will top 150mph and still return 50mpg! Use the slightly clunky gears to propel yourself on a wave of torque in the slightly awkward driving position! It is utterly composed through corners, not the oversteering beast I thought it might be. Acres of room in the back and a decent sized boot too. And people dont want to spit at you or call you a facist because its not a stockbroker wannabe 3 series either....

Too Many Little Problems For High End Car — Mechanically sound. Lots (and I mean lots) of little things go wrong - poor trim, door seals replaced x 3, noisy sunrood, electronic problems, irritating and cheap interior (cupholders - aaaagggghhh). Better value out there for less money. I've driven BMW for over 10 years but this will be the last.

Nice Euro Design A Usual — The exterior is amazing, but if you look at all the buttons and commands, you realize that there are alot of distrasctions while you drive for instance the center knob controls almost everything, now imagine setting the clock on that thing :) .Driving wise this car has a smooth acceleration until you floor it, give's you a whiplash like no tomorrow. Extremely amuzing

Smooth ride

Cons

Could be too spacious for some people

All Around Great — This car is beautiful! It rides very smooth and is incredibly comfortable. The only reason I traded it in was because I felt it was a bit too big, but then again I am pretty small. Very spacious and elegant.
