    Darn Good Ride — Reliable and not repair-prone, but when something has to be done it costs a fortune. Like other day I had a small part for the carburator and it cost over 200+ bucks. So it's important to treat Big Bertha right.

    Pros: Great handling

    Cons: Repairs cost a bunch

    The 2006 530i Is A Great Car — This is a really great car. The ride is awesome and it is so fun to drive. It's also a really good-looking car. The car has kept its value pretty well. I will be quite sad when I have to sell this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The ride

    Cons: Doesn't have iPod/AUX connection

    Can't Find Enough Words To Describe It! — Greatest car ever! I love everything about it. Great performance for a diesel, best ever handling car i have ever driven (except MB SL55 AMG), you don't expect it to drive as good as it does, handles great at any speed, on any kind of surface and it's pretty comfortable bearing in my mind that's it has sport suspension and low profile tyres. As always BMW's build quality is excellent, everything feels expensive, soft and nice to touch. The M-sport package definitely adds a nice touch to the exterior and makes the car look nicer and more aggressive! Is this car fun to drive? Indeed it is!!! Ultimate Driving Machine! Of course it is not an M5, but for everyday transportation i couldn't wish more!

    Pros: It's just simply great!

    Cons: I can't see any.

    Go An Get On Ourselves! — Great daily driver. Superb car. Its actually a 523i but it was not listed here. Anyway its still a 2,5 litres six-cylinder engine. A lot of equipment makes this a superb car. Comfort seats, Professional GPS, automatic transmission, big stereo etc.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: the comfort

    Cons: nothing

    Anyway Bmw So Sexy, I Could Forgive Everything To My Bmw — There could be trouble with automatic gearboxes, but I think that it's usual broblem for BMW, I had the same trouble with my X5 2005 turbo diesel. And if u want to solve this problem you have to buy new gearbox with incredible prece - about 4 thoundsand euros or even a little bit bore

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It drives like a beautiful girl

    Cons: Bad BMW Warranty support

    Best In Class Driving Experience, Some Questionable Design Choices, Balanced Fun And Fast — Had my 2006 525i just over a month now. Bought with 63k miles on it. The handling with the sport package is unreal. True sport sedan that hangs with sports cars through the twisties. The 215 hp engine is smooth, sounds great and provides decent acceleration, but could still use more power. Comfortable, roomy and fast, this car is a joy to drive.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Best handling sedan- period, exterior styling, engine response and sound, luxury features

    Cons: This model will do 150 but acceleration is a little weak, interior styling, iDrive takes forever to learn
