    Amazing — I love driving this car. I feel very safe and I love having heated seats, a heated steering wheel and all the other bells and whistles. I love driving a BMW and i don't know if I can ever go back to driving anything else.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Stylish, powerful, and handles like a dream.

    Cons: Don't plan on carrying many people or things

    The 5 Series Is Thee Ultimate Driving Machine. — Great power and handling. I've owned a 2000 528i and a 2006 550i. Both had the manual transmission. The 550i was 71k new back in 06. It had Heads up display and transferred your contacts via bluetooth into the car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Power, Handling, Technology, Features, Seats and Voice Command (550i)

    Cons: Not a M5

    Beutiful And Comfy Car Handles Great. Great Milage. But Breaks Down From Time To Time — though it has only a 2 liter diesel motor it performs very well, 165 horsepowers and yet very great milage. accelerates almost like a v8 and breaks are very powerful. it is a very beautiful car inside and out and a perfect build i think, it is perfectly sound insulated, almost no road sound and music sounds great in it. it has needed repairs and parts are not cheap. a very comfortable car and great to drive

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: i like to drive it, it is very comfortable and handles like a dream. also it has wery great gas milage.

    Cons: reliability, i have just in a few months changed front shocks and springs, window wiper motor, front wheel bearing and more. also thi car is not made for snow, i live in iceland for heavens sake:)
