The 2006 BMW 525i four-door sedan was powered by an all-new 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that produced 215 horsepower, an increase of 31 horsepower over the previous year's engine. The additional power was courtesy of such upgrades as variable valve timing and electronically controlled engine cooling. A six-speed manual overdrive transmission was standard, while a six-speed automatic was available as an option.
As was the case with prior models, test drivers didn't particularly like the layout of the controls or the 525i's fuel economy, but those two setbacks were overshadowed by checks in the "pros" column: steering, handling, ride, build quality, and interior materials.
Standard features for the 2006 525i included a power glass sunroof, multi-zone climate control, power windows with remote window operation, a power-adjustable driver's seat, power-adjustable headrests, wood interior trim, power exterior mirrors, a leather-trimmed steering wheel with controls for the audio and cruise control systems, an anti-theft alarm system, and an AM/FM stereo system with an in-dash CD player.
Four-wheel anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control, a tire pressure monitoring system, and 17-inch alloy wheels were also part of the package.
Adds to 525i:
No additional major features.

The 2006 BMW 530i four-door sedan was powered by an upgraded 3.0-liter inline-six engine with variable valve timing, which put out 255 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission was standard, while a six-speed automatic overdrive transmission was optional. Standard features included such driver-assistance features as Hill Ascent Assist, Braking Assist, stability control, and traction control.
Beyond that, the 530i was equipped with an extensive list of interior and exterior features, including a one-touch power sunroof, multi-zone climate control, adaptive headlights, heated exterior mirrors, wood interior trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable front seats, cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, an anti-theft alarm system, a full range of airbags, and an AM/FM stereo system with a CD player.
In addition, the software for the iDrive navigation system - which got numerous complaints in previous years - seems to have been tweaked to make it "less annoying."

New for 2006, the BMW 530xi four-door sedan was equipped with BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which improved the vehicle's agility and stability. Power was provided by an upgraded 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with variable valve timing, which pushed horsepower to 255.

The BMW 550i four-door sedan, new for 2006, replaced the 545 in the BMW 5-Series lineup. It also improved on the 545's power, dropping a new 360-horsepower, 4.8-liter, double-overhead-cam V8 engine under the car's elegant hood. A six-speed manual transmission was standard, while a fully electronic six-speed automatic transmission was available as an option.
Standard features for the 550i included Dynamic Stability Control, which adjusts power and braking in emergency situations, and Park Distance Control, which aids the driver in parking. Active Steering, which adapts the steering angle to suit the situation, was available as a stand-alone option.
Other features included ergonomically designed leather seats, power windows, a leather sports steering wheel, power door locks, a sunroof, multi-zone climate control, power-adjustable front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, adaptive headlights and brake lights, Dark Poplar wood trim, and an electrically adjustable steering column.
In addition, the BMW 550i was equipped with anti-lock brakes, a 10-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a CD player, 17-inch wheels, and BMW's iDrive control system with a 6.5-inch display screen.
Among the options were a navigation system, a heated steering wheel, heated seats, and a CD changer.
Drivers tended to heap plenty of praise on the BMW 550, citing everything from its high-performance and responsive handling to its innovative, high-tech mechanics and luxury features as noteworthy. The car's exterior styling remained controversial, however, with some unimpressed by the redesign that took place in 2004. And some drivers noted that the iDrive system, while simplified for the 550, could still be a bit complicated to operate.
