- Auto shut off, steering feel
Purchased As New
This is my third 5 series, traded in my '08 535i after test driving the 7 series, Infiniti and Audi competitors. The exterior is even better when seen in person and the interior is much better than the previous generation (especially the cup holders). Interior is very similar to the 7 series. The new HD nav system and back up camera are excellent, iPod interface is seamless. My favorite option is the adaptive suspension (DDC) which makes a noticeable difference in the car's handling from soft like a Lexus to sporty BMW standards. My complaint is the new electric steering, you lose road feel when compared to the hydraulic system used in previous generations (and new M5). Also the auto shut off is very noticeable, not smooth. Fix this and it would be perfect, but still a great car.
