    Gold Bmw 540i — I love my car! THe performance exceeds all other cars i have owned because of its power. It handlesd smoothly, and stops on a dime. It has no rattles or squeaks. Its a manual 6 speed, V8, leasther, all automatic seat adjustment, sun roof, low profile tires. The gas milage is decent, i get between 25-28 mpg.

    Pros: fast, comfortable, economical

    Cons: not much room for a family

    Bmw 540i — I quite liked this "da" car for driving around town. for a 10 year old car, it performed really well. very heavy on the juice though and had to get rid of it in the end. it was the frist rear wheel drive car i owned which was good fun on a wet day.

    Pros: great build quality

    Cons: thirsty work

    Bmw 540i — Its Very Fast - 155mph and 60 in 5.4 seconds, it has a straight thru exhaust which hits 110.9 Db and runs on LPG so is really cheap to run 65 quid from the round trip to aberdeen. Plus its very smooth and comfortable to drive. And it runs mid 14's at santa pod with 100mph+ terminal speeds.

    Pros: Power, performance, noise, comfort, ride and cheap to run

    Cons: Could stand out in the crowd a little more styling wise

    528i A Good Car — Great car at a great price, had to put a little money in at the start, but what do you expect? New radiator, had to clean out the Idle Control Valve but the price of owning one of the better cars on the road.

    Pros: Good power, nice interior, great paint and a nice ride.

    Cons: The price of the parts are a little higher, but if you do your own work not bad.

    Bmw 528i 5spd Sport Package — The car is very reliable and has good build quality. However its extremely boring to drive and you just blend in with all of the housewifes and old men going to play golf. I have the sport package and its the only way to go because it really enhances the visual appeal of the car. One thing i really don't like is the front bumper design. It is a disaster and a curb catcher. Also to much body roll. The hvac is poorly thought out. For instance in order to turn on rear defrost i have to turn on the hvac. I would suggest this car to the average individual who just wants to get from point A to B. Overall great car but boring.

    Pros: Above par build quality, lots of room, comfortable and quiet ride with good fuel consumption

    Cons: Boring to drive, soft clutch and shifting, HVAC unit is poorly designed and has crappy buttons

    528i — Needs a little more under the hood... Caos of ownership is expected to be a little high, resale is reflective of cost of ownership. Next one will be a 540i. Great handling for a 4 door. Gas mileage is good. Overall I look forward to getting into it every day.

    Pros: Handles nice, very comfortable, sharp looking

    Cons: little more off the line would be nice...

    Bmw 528i A — NOTHING! Its perfect - only a sunroof is missing - otherwise it has more equipment than you can ask for... Including Buffalo Leather Comfort Seats and double glazed (thermo) windows, Navigation / TV, Memory seats, xenon lights, M steeringwheel, 18 inch M alloys, Air suspention rear, M suspension front, and i could go on... And you CAN NOT get a better car for the money. Trust me...

    Pros: Best car ever

    Cons: Best car ever

    Common But Unique — It has a great acceleration so the acceleration feeling is great as stuck in your seat. Very good stability in turning on high speed . a bit heavy but safe , fast and stable, it also got a great turbo power, increasing its acceleration. hope you will enjoy it like i did.

    Pros: safe, fast and stable

    Cons: a bit heavy

    A Great Daily Driver — Very comfortable and sophisticated car to drive, but almost too boring. This car makes you enjoy normal commuting and 99% of driving, whereas the older models are not as comfortable but can offers thrills this one can't. I've owned it for a little over a year now, and not too much has gone wrong with it. Fuel economy is good for an engine this large.

    Pros: comfort, performance, fuel economy

    Cons: boring
