Love At First Sight In Austria Sometime Falls In 2003 — The best machine at it's class man ever made on Earth at this present time. Superb sports car handling for an executive sedan with long wheelbase. Fair maintenance cost with efficient fuel consumption as I travel a lot. Thanks to my magnesium engine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The sleek bodylines and curves is as awesome as ur gf body's curve yeah

Cons: Too costly in Malaysia

Huh? — Nice body design like lines in the body. Nice headlamp design. Its starring at you. Nice acceleration but still slow for me. Better engine sound than M5. But mercedes engines have better sounds. Nice fuel consumption! One of my friend is jealous at me

Primary Use: Family transportation

Bmw — Its a luxyrious car with high comfort. The acceleration is good and the car has some coool features. Its always nice to drive a 6 geared car. The negative thing is that It uses much fuel, but its still a very fun car to drive!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It looks nice.

Cons: the gears are a bit slow.

Bmw 5 Series Is Everthing It's Cracked Up To Be... — Cupholders suck! The I-drive takes some getting used to. Mileage is good, I average 27 mpg, car handles very tight. It's a very good car and I would buy another BMW. Service department treats you like a queen! Havent had to pay for a thing!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance

Cons: Cupholders!

Brilliant In Sport Spec — Big diesel performance the best thing about the 530d. Build quality good; paint poor Handling not up to the "ultimate driving machine" moniker on the SE even with the optional sport suspension option; you need the Sport. Fuel consumption high 30s if you cruise; low 30s if you're pushing on [auto]. Plenty of seating room, but bot not the biggest.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the great 6 cylinder diesel

Cons: sloppy handling for a BMW

Best All Round Transportation You Can Put Your Mitts On! — Performance - very adequate but not outrageous Build Quality - It's a Bimmer for g-ds sake Appearance - Orient Blue Mettalic... it looks gorgeous with the tan interior and tinted windows Cost of Ownership - most everything is still under warranty and the service from the dealer has been nothing short of outstanding Fun Factor - a blast to drive fast... the car gets smaller and tighter as you get to highway speeds but it's never frenetic or fidgety.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Tremendous handling, braking and comfort

Cons: Not much in the way of aftermarket parts

Good Car For Any Situation — Its pretty fun to drive in any weather condition, but it can make do with a better soundtrack from the engine and more torque. It looks like every other 5-series too. The brakes are pretty good, but this is not a track car.

Pros: Drives amazing

Cons: Style
