    Mint 2011 Bmw 535 Xi, Cold Weather Package, Navigation, Satellite Radio, Rear Heated Seats — I love the way this car drives and handles overall. The gas mileage is great. It has such a roomy interior and fits three full size carseats in the rear. The rear heated seats are a plus. This car is great for trips or just back and forth to work. The maintenace is free for five years so virtually nothing to do but gas up and drive.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The car is absolutely mint and fun to drive!

    Cons: If there was one, I'd list it.

    Love It! — This new body style really turn heads, it's aggressive and sleek looking curves are unique to the midsize family car. This car in my opinion is what every family car should look and feel like. The only thing better would be to have a L version of the 5 series.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Best Car i ever owned!

    Cons: Most expensive car i ever owned.

    My Current By Not Quite The Most Beloved Five — This BMW. Five series is my "fifth 5" and third variation in the term of different generations and I love the car however I do have a different idea when it comes to definity as to aether or not BMW is still a BMW or.if.in fact they may have succumb to the likes of those shorter gents who may be over at that place where they renlentlessly pursue perfection... you decide.

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

    Pros: Brakes....acceleration...ride....styling and interior and moreoever the single most fantastic Premium High Fidelity Sound System.

    Cons: Ride to Much in favor of the softer side

    Incredibly Stable — Nice luxury sedan...why pay for a 7 series when a 5 gives you everything the 7 has for less money. Although the 7 series may have a better sound system. I opt for the sports package and Im glad I did because I love the handling of this family car....its sporty and it looks great. Great gas milage at 34 mpg. Good buy....for a great driving experience.

    Pros: Great for a night out on the town

    Cons: stereo system could be better

    Best Buy — This is a very Comfortable car, sporty and luxurious.

    The Absolute Definition Of The Ultimate Driving Machine. Luxury + Performance + Style — I own a luxury car dealership and I'm fortunate enough to have an access to ANY car to drive. After driving the BMW 550i with M sport package, I've found out that it is the perfect mixture of performance, luxury, and style.

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

    Pros: The absolute definition of the ultimate driving machine. Luxury + Performance + Style

    The All New Ultimate Driving Machine... The F10 5 Series Sedan — Since the F10 concept platform has been conceived by BMW, it has gone a long way until production. This is undoubtedly one of the greatest 5 series every built by BMW, albeit the spirited fun driving experience is mildly diminished from the previous generation E60. The all new 5 series looks and feels like a smaller version of the F01 7-series. With all the electronic gadgets added to the 5, the car-to-driver connection has been compromised. Don't get me wrong, it's still a fast car, thanks to its all-new 4.4L TwinTurbo V8 that pumps out 400 horses and 450 lb-ft of torque, propelling you from 0-60 in less than 5.1 seconds; however, the "extension of your arms and legs" feeling is no longer there. However, this is compensated by comfort, technology, and everyday usability. Overall this is a great family sports sedan to have in your garage.

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

    Pros: Power, comfort, styling

    Cons: None noted as of yet
