    Silver 545 Ib Saudi — Simply great car. Loved the active steering eventhough it takes time to get used to. Powerfull yet smooth. Fun to drive everyday and best of all my kids loved it. My next car would be either a 550 or M5. Depending on the budget....

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: V8   Grrrreat

    Nice And Solid Car — Very good car and reliable, we didn't have problem with the car for the 3 years we own it. Gas mileage was ok, the handling was good and I will buy another one if the next generation is available this year.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good looking and reliable

    Cons: the back doors are too high, so when the back seat passengers sat in the back, it is hard for them to see outside.

    Bang For The Buck! — Bang for the buck in the used car market is unparralled. 30mpg, current body style, $50k new $20k now, BMW knows how to build an inline six, feels like much more than 190hp, ZF 6speed is always in the powerband. Excellent handling, braking and road manners.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: MPG, Style, wow factor

    Cons: slightly underpowered, idrive is overcomplex

    Bmw 525 With Full Mods — This has to be the best mid size saloon on the planet so far. Performance - acceleration, braking, handling Build Quality - squeaks/rattles there are some Appearance - both interior and exterior are very good apart from cup holder which I hate. Cost of Ownership - maintenance is ok Fun Factor - alot of fun to drive

    Pros: Handle very well for a car this size and fast too

    Cons: Just the cup holder and Run Flat Tyre are very bad for the handling

    2004 Bmw 530i With Sport Package — Best ride quality of any car any class. Better than 750, or, in my opinion of the S series MB. I wish I had kept it. This 530 has made me seriously wonder why I would ever want the 545. There was great speed, accelleration, control, safety, great fun, great performance.

    Pros: ride, accelleration, handling, fun to drive, solid looks, great quality, great service and support

    Cons: none, really
