Bad fast for a 4 door, AWD everyday car that also gets great gas mileage

Awesome 4 Door Rocket — BMW quality, maintenance included and warranty is great. AWD is great. Comfortable ride. Plenty of room for most families. Tight with 2 cars seats and lots of kids stuff though. Gas mileage is great for the amount of car and power. Comfortable on long trips and fun to drive.

Excellent Car — loved the luxury and comfort in the car. Starting 2011, BMW focused more on bringing whats in the 7 series down the 5 series, vs before, were they were focusing on expanding the luxury of the 3 series. I disliked the pick up compared to the 3 series with the same engine.

Buy A Bmw 550, You Won't Regret It. — I'll buy another one! I've owned 4 BMWs and I bought this 2011 a year old with 9k miles. I love this car. For a sport sedan, i don't think anything beats it. Just go test drive one to see for yourself.

Great pick up (300hp Twin-turbo engine), hugs the road and handles great on turns.

Cons

Not enough trunk space

Low Miles- Low Price 2011 Bmw 535i — I have had this car for 9 months and it handles great. It has twin turbo engines that give you the power when you need to accelerate. The car has illuminated interior (red) that looks great and cozy when you are driving around at night.

Beautiful Inside And Out — I love the ride, the style, storage, reliability and the ride. I loved the stylish lighting at night on the inside. I love how my iphone syncs wireless and that i can add songs to the hard drive instead of inserting a cd.

Pros

Handling is much better than my 2006 528I, I love the 8 speeds, I am getting 28.3 mpg combined with mostly in town driving. Handles great at 135 mph with still plenty of speed leftover. Braking is very good and cornering is very predictable. I love this car!

Cons

Would like to have the power of the 535 but not a must

I Love This Vehicle? — This vehicle is really a step forward for the BMW 5 series, the overall driving experience has been inhanced greatly from the previous 5 series line. The new series performs and handles and feels like a quantum leep from the previous model years. I can't imagine going back to my old 2006 528I. Very happy!

The Ultimate Driving Machine — I don't think there's any other car, no matter how expensive it is, can come close to this BMW 550i with M sport package. It's has a very powerfull and extremely resposive engine that communicates in a sliky way with its 8 speed automatice transmission.

The Absolute Definition Of The Ultimate Driving Machine. Luxury + Performance + Style — I own a luxury car dealership and I'm fortunate enough to have an access to ANY car to drive. After driving the BMW 550i with M sport package, I've found out that it is the perfect mixture of performance, luxury, and style.

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

Mint 2011 Bmw 535 Xi, Cold Weather Package, Navigation, Satellite Radio, Rear Heated Seats — I love the way this car drives and handles overall. The gas mileage is great. It has such a roomy interior and fits three full size carseats in the rear. The rear heated seats are a plus. This car is great for trips or just back and forth to work. The maintenace is free for five years so virtually nothing to do but gas up and drive.

Love It! — This new body style really turn heads, it's aggressive and sleek looking curves are unique to the midsize family car. This car in my opinion is what every family car should look and feel like. The only thing better would be to have a L version of the 5 series.
