    A Great Family Sedan From Bmw — The larger size of this model 5 series (known as F10 body style) makes it a better choice for families than previous generations. The 3.0 liter turbo engine has enough power to make this a real performance sedan with plenty of power for performance day to day driving. The interior is roomy, made to comfortably accommodate 4 adults. The trunk is spacious and I have been able to fit two children's bikes (small ones) in there.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Roomy, many shared parts with a 7 series, luxury, performance

    Cons: Trade off between size and handling. Physics wins!

    Good Family Car — It looks like a sport car but it is not! It drives really nice, economical in gas, and better quality than Mercedes Benz E class which I used to own. A little under power, and I would consider buying the 535 instead next time. First BMW that I drive/own - not disappointed. A great sedan.

    Pros: Good driving family car

    Cons: Phone connections,

    Awesome 4 Door Rocket — BMW quality, maintenance included and warranty is great. AWD is great. Comfortable ride. Plenty of room for most families. Tight with 2 cars seats and lots of kids stuff though. Gas mileage is great for the amount of car and power. Comfortable on long trips and fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Bad fast for a 4 door, AWD everyday car that also gets great gas mileage

    Cons: Hard to see out of mirrors, they are small and hard to see past the large sport seats

    Excellent Car — loved the luxury and comfort in the car. Starting 2011, BMW focused more on bringing whats in the 7 series down the 5 series, vs before, were they were focusing on expanding the luxury of the 3 series. I disliked the pick up compared to the 3 series with the same engine.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: FAST

    Cons: nothing

    Buy A Bmw 550, You Won't Regret It. — I'll buy another one! I've owned 4 BMWs and I bought this 2011 a year old with 9k miles. I love this car. For a sport sedan, i don't think anything beats it. Just go test drive one to see for yourself.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Style, power & handling

    Low Miles- Low Price 2011 Bmw 535i — I have had this car for 9 months and it handles great. It has twin turbo engines that give you the power when you need to accelerate. The car has illuminated interior (red) that looks great and cozy when you are driving around at night.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great pick up (300hp Twin-turbo engine), hugs the road and handles great on turns.

    Cons: Not enough trunk space

    Beautiful Inside And Out — I love the ride, the style, storage, reliability and the ride. I loved the stylish lighting at night on the inside. I love how my iphone syncs wireless and that i can add songs to the hard drive instead of inserting a cd.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: the ride, reliability, style, storage, and power, heated steering wheel!

    Cons: leg room in back seat

    I Love This Vehicle? — This vehicle is really a step forward for the BMW 5 series, the overall driving experience has been inhanced greatly from the previous 5 series line. The new series performs and handles and feels like a quantum leep from the previous model years. I can't imagine going back to my old 2006 528I. Very happy!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling is much better than my 2006 528I, I love the 8 speeds, I am getting 28.3 mpg combined with mostly in town driving. Handles great at 135 mph with still plenty of speed leftover. Braking is very good and cornering is very predictable. I love this car!

    Cons: Would like to have the power of the 535 but not a must

    The Ultimate Driving Machine — I don't think there's any other car, no matter how expensive it is, can come close to this BMW 550i with M sport package. It's has a very powerfull and extremely resposive engine that communicates in a sliky way with its 8 speed automatice transmission.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: PERFECT SYMPHONY OF WHAT THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE SHOULD BE.

    Cons: PRICE, BUT IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT, BUY IT.
