- Handles like a BMW (when it starts)
- Constant Battery & Electrical Problems.
Purchased As Used
BMW have had Battery & Electrical Problems with the 5-Series for years (Google BMW 5 Series Battery Drainage). Guess what the blogs and the reviews are correct. I had a Mercedes that you could stop. Now I have a BMW I can't start! My driving habits are the same for both. My wife also has a Mercedes, no problems and we have a BMW Z4 fun car....no problems. BMW blame your driving habits, the underwear you had on when the battery goes flat. The weather. The only thing they don't blame is their crap car....read morehide

- Great handling, acceleration, true Lux-Sport
- Bought new in Apr09, 6 times in Service, towed 3 times - NIGHTMARE
Purchased As New
We've had countless BMWs thru the years, including a 645, 750, 528 and this 535 just in the last 5 years. This new 5-Series is VERY DISAPPOINTING. 6 times in Service for total of 24 days - just in 8 months. It takes 30 days in 18 months for Cali lemon law to kick in, then they are getting this dog back. As other posters wrote, the BATTERY DIES every 3-4 days. Seriously. BMW replies with "this is normal operation."
Normal? I paid 65K for this fully-loaded lemon. EVERY time I get in and push the ignition, I pray it will actually crank and start.
THAT'S the new BMW 535, folks.
What else? Water pump failed - replaced; Fuel pump failed - replaced; fuel control system failed - replaced; "unusual battery discharge" (dead battery) - FOUR TIMES - BMW claims it's NORMAL!
Other than that, it's a nice car............read morehide

- Excellent fuel economy, a really fast ride, very luxurious300 3.0 V6
- Complicated memory system, loud
I just bought a 2009 BMW 535i a few days ago, and I absolutely love it. First, it has excellent fuel economy. When I tested it, I got an EPA estimated 33 miles per gallon. The 535i is also very luxurious. There's leather upholstery, climate controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, trip computer, premium sound, everything. There's an optional navigation unit. Heated rear seats are also available. The car is loaded. Power sunroof. Leather. Heated front seats. Memory system. Everything. The 535i is also a very sporty car. I tested a 0-60mph run of 5.3 seconds. That's incredibly impressive. You'll find BMW's 300 horsepower 3.0 liter V6 engine. And it still gets exceptional fuel economy. The only thing I don't like about the 535i is the memory system. It conflicts with the radio, and it was hard to use. The 535i is also a very loud car, inside and out. Nevertheless, the 535i is almost a Ferrari. It's got a huge engine, fast, memory system, 19 speakers, digital connection, wireless cellphone, leather, heated seats, trip computer, air conditioning. In December 2009, I am leaving the BMW 535i for $67,000. It's a great package. Call me for reservations, I'll send your 2009 BMW 535i in December 2009. Call me in the next month, and I'll cut the price 5%!...read morehide

- Great PERFORMANCE....if you drive lexus or mb this is not the car for you .Handling ...WOW!!!!!
- THIS CAR IS NOT FOR BORING PEOPLE ...this is the car for people that want little bit more from life
BMW makes a SUPERB vehicle !!! That's what everybody is saying ....unlike the other two reviews above I am a real BMW driver from US. I own a 2008 535i . Before this car I test drove all the "competitors" and this is the car that stood out. If you like the smoothness of a Lexus or Cadillac please do yourself a favor save the few grand and everybody will be much more happier. However if you are a WINNER , if you work hard and play even harder, and you want the best car on the market ...this is you made it ......no more school , college ...you have graduated !!!!

- Excellent Control both at low and high speeds. Superb on-the-dime turning. Killer looks on the road
The BMW 5-Series Sedan (530d) in Diesel is indeed a show stealer. It commands respect and even the likes of Mercedes and Range Rovers bow to its powerful road presence. From its curvy shape to its turbo performance, the boys from Bavaria have indeed though of everything that a driver needs for the full experience. My 5-Series (2008) is extremely fun to drive and a head-turner on the road. Thanks BMW for a vehicle that I will enjoy for a long time to come....read morehide
