Dad-s 550i — Performance- Great brakes, handling, and acceleration. Solid tires, transmission and suspension. Sport and manumatic modes are very nice. Build Quality- Amazing, better than any Japanese car Appearance- Looks great in and out, love the angel eyes Cost of Ownership- very little, covered by BMW warranty Fun Factor- Very fun to drive, rewards driver when driven hard

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Very solidly built car that performs well and looks good while doing it

Cons: Expensive if not covered by BMW warranty, but if its 2008 it will still be covered.

528xi — The steering felt good. The performance for such a small engine was pretty good, and it could accelerate. The feeling of the steering and the car in general was excellent. It felt very strong in terms of build quality. Its brakes were good, but this car is definitely not a track car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: good drive and feel

Cons: uncomfortable seat

It's My Second 5, Replaced A 530xi — no turbo lag, smooth, improved idrive, very, very happy. great performance, everything just works. 2 months old now, no surprises, it just does what it's told. only disappointment is the unique bmw shifter, different from all other automatics. wanted a stick, but couldn't wait the 8 weeks, and would have had to pay for a 2010.

Pros: xdrive, 300 hp

Cons: expense

Love It! — Fantastic car, can play with a new 335, proven recently. solid built and little bit heavy but a great cruser at a 100 and over... quality finish and well designed for a driver, drinks a bit, but you've got to pay for a pleasure.

Pros: quality car

Cons: I want to be the only one to drive it!

Great Car I Have — I could have bought myself the m5, but thought it was a good idea to have an extremly powerfull turbocharged 6 cylinder with the same peformance as m5, but only feeling lighter and more fun to play with in this time where fuel is not so cheap anymore.

Pros: Perfect driving

Cons: Zilch

Fast - Loved The Sport Seats — Love this car-- so fast-- not a big fan of the free service.. Took forever every time I took this car in for service.. The cost of ownership was nothing. Everything was free. The car was a blast to drive.. Drive it up to the mountains and it hugs the turns..

Pros: Fast- loved the sport seats-- 90mph and you feel as if you are going 55

Cons: service took a while!

Great Car. Handles Amazing And Is Very Reliable. — Performance - acceleration, braking, handling Build Quality - Has only been sent in for very minor things, like iPod connector and need oil topped off Appearance - add the sports package and comes with M series and rims and shifter Cost of Ownership - Well it definitely like to eat gas especially the way I drive Fun Factor - Doing 60 and stepping on the gas and flying past everyone else on the road.

Pros: Looks great, great for long cruises.

Cons: The cars iPod connecting doesn't work well with the new 3G iPhone.  The navigation system can take some recommendations from Tom Tom

535i — Drives like a dream. Way better than any Japanese car I ever driven. No rattles, this thing rides on rails and is solid as they come. Wish I went for the manual, but automatic was still fun. The only thing I didn't like was that the sound system was lacking in bass.

Pros: Rides on rails!

Cons: Ho-hum bass
