2008 BMW 5 Series
There are 20 user reviews for the 535xi Sedan trim shown below
- Aesthetics, front, back and sides. This is a car that hugs the road -not surprising considering heft
- The NAV system is garbage at best, Acceleration suffers lag, options add up.
This is a good 2+2 family car for those not looking for high performance. Ride is compliant but not soft (lexus) or bone shaking (audi). The options put this car well priced above its MSRP. The NAV system (a $2k option for my 535xi) is ridiculously ancient. No touch screen, hideous colors and a real pain to use. I use a $400 plug in garmin unti - go figure. I Drive is pretty decent (unless you are a complete moron) and there are five preprogrammable buttons (radio, cell phone etc) as well as two on the steering wheel. Comfy car (get heated wheel and seats) for hauling kids around, however the trunk is not very large. The voice command system is a joke (Don't try and ever switch off the command on the NAV if you have a hammer in the car, cause you will use it..) and is apparently set for voice recognition in another language with the most ridiculous commands known to humankind. Rims are expensive.
