    The Bimmer — My car is perfect if you have family with children and its goodlooking too. If you want a fast car, then my car are not the best choice. Because when i drive 220km/h its still like driving 160km/h or if you wanna go 160km/h then its like 110km/h. This makes the car feeling slow while driving and the positive point of view is that your wife doesnt notice the actual speed, because of its comfort. My cars mechanic is very good and its also cheap or average when parts are needed. The bimmer goes 7-8 km/l in urban, 10-12 km/l suburban and 8-10 km/l mixed. The most fun with this car is that mine is automatic/triptronic which i use manually when i feel to go drifting. But manual is always the best. And remember it is backwheel driven... So much more fun like every bimmer.

    Pros: Bimmer + Mercedes -

    Cons: Not a M5

    Drive It And Love It — I waited for years for the opportunity to buy a car like this, and when I finally got one, it exceeded all my expectations. This car has superb comfort, true power, practical load space, and the most beautiful lines among its competition. I hope I can keep this car for many many years to come.

    Pros: The quality, everything is assembled with precision, nothing loose, just perfection

    Cons: Expensive spare parts

    Bmw 530i — If you're looking for a 530i, this is the best model year for it. The sport trim makes it handle tight corners at faster than 100mph! Trust me, I've done it! And its a welcome sight at any event. Wooooo, what a ride!! Best performance, serious quality, and its good on gas too!

    Pros: Big car feel, sport car handling.  Not too pretentious, but fancy enough for a nice outting.

    Cons: Negatives?  What Negatives?

    Timeless Mix Of Performance And Comfort — For a 2.5 litre engine, the BMW M54 powerplant is a fun piece of engineering. It has good power delivery and response. It feels very eager to rev. The chassis has excellent balance between performance and comfort. The car feels solid and sure footed even when driven around fast bends quickly. I love it.

    Pros: the engine & chassis

    Cons: radio

    I Love This Car — This is an amazing car. Finest I have ever owned. Plenty of power, and handles incredibly well for a 4800lb car. I use to own a 1996 328i which was a better handling car, but wasn't big enough now that I have a kid. You just can't go wrong with BMW

    Pros: V8 Torque

    Cons: Maintenance is a little expensive
