Addicting! — This car is fun to drive. Very powerful on the road, people always compliment on how nice the car looks. Since I started driving the 5 series, I dont think I will be able to switch to any other car, simple as this.

Pros

The 300hp/300 ft-lb torque I6 is smoother than a silk scarf running over your lovely ..., fit and finish is superb, quiet, corners like it is on rails.  GREAT handling, and a smooth manual 6 speed makes this thing a joy to drive.  

Cons

Styling is left-overs.  The newer 2011+ models look better.  Blue-tooth does not transfer music over it.  Pillar makes egress difficult at times.  With the sport suspension, the ride can be harsh on rougher roads, but you get the great handling as payback.

A Sporty Sleeper In Disguise — Tight as a drum, reliable, fun to drive easy or hard, corners like it is on rails - and of course, monumental German engineering through and through, this baby is fun as heck to drive and use as a daily driver or on a twisty back road. Quiet, superb torque, 300 ft-lbs at 1400 RPM out to near red-line, makes this I6 powered auto drive more like it has a V8. That was the engineer's objectives. Twin turbo love. Sound system has 14 speakers, and sub's built into the seats. Logic 7, makes it more of a music hall. The newer GPS and iDrive system works well, and audio controls for voice activated systems is well executed. I would buy another 5 series in a heart beat. Best sedan I have ever owned, hands down.

Love This Car — Love the car, great engine, don't need to worry about the turbo, or injectors it just runs smooth, keep up the maintenance and never have any issues. It is a great car, the only downside I would say is trunk space, it is a little limited especially when it comes to golf clubs.

Pros

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

Cons

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.

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.

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.
