Pros

M Sports package, fast, reliable, luxurious, great sound system, looks good, great muffler sound, especially at +4000rpm, nav system, easy access feature.

Cons

car always trying to learn driving habits to adapt, not good due to daily bumper to bumper traffic - needs to be reset frequently - useless feature and annoying. no temp gauge, no sports console.

Best Car I Ever Drove. — Don't get me wrong, this is the best car I ever drove and ever owned, so I am being very critical. 'Currently own 2000 540i as well and find it to be superior to the 2010 550i in some ways; managed to get 37mpg following speed limit, in cruise on flat (540 does 42mpg), inferior leather stitching and finish compared to 2000 540i, car always trying to learn driving habits to adapt, not good due to daily bumper to bumper traffic commute - needs to be reset frequently - useless feature and annoying, results in eventual slow response, so must always remember to disable DTC and select sports mode, it's all or nothing. or reset the learning thing frequently. After reset, drives like a dream. Other negatives - no engine temp gauge, no sports console, no start lock feature (password code like 540i). A step up in electronics but a step down in workmanship. Having said all that, I drove the 2010 550i M sports pak from Calgary to Montreal (3500mi one way) in 3 days (and drove back of course) was great fun. Did the same from Calgary to Houston, 3 days too. Absolute great all round car for long trips and short speedy runs. Sitting in traffic is much more bearable with the great sound system. Stores CDs MP3 etc on built in 120gb hard drive, nav system is great, love the google maps send to my car feature, love the electric blind screen in the back and close it on tailgaters, the car is tough as nails. I drive tough and hard on my cars, all were done for after a couple of years. I still own and drive my first BMW, If the 550i can put up with my abuse, it's a damn good car. Having said that, they are both V8 engines, not so sure if the smaller engines could take my driving habits.

Pros

beautiful, powerful and comfortable car - that handles like a dream.

Cons

expensive, dark blue shows ALL road dirt, lacks hands-free entry and start, less than stellar fuel economy

It's The Ultimate Driving Machine — It's my first 5-series and I love it - what more can I say? It's powerful, it handles extremely well, and it is very comfortable for long and short trips. The back seat is big enough for adults, the trunk can actually fit enough luggage for a trip, and the interior amenities are what you'd expect for a car of it's class.

Nice Car, Excellent Ride — So far, my only concerns is my busted windshield after owning the vehicle for a week or 2. Frame noises from shifting gears. But I love the comfort of the car, i-drive, power, acceleration seems slow, when trying to drive slow. But if I'm looking for a burst of speed, the car definitely delivers. Driving modest, I can get about 30mpg, when going sport I see about 25mpg.

Pros

you can add a chip to get more horse.

Cons

the price and the seats are not even heated.

535i Good Gas Mileage — This car has good acceleration and a smooth ride. The only problem encountered off the lot was many flat tires. I had to put run flats on this car as the standard tires are sucky continentals. The car handles great around curves at a high rate of speed and seems to like it that way.
