Fourth BMW I've owned...quality and outstanding comfort combined with smooth, powerful performance.
2011 528i Great balance and power!
Pros: Car quality
Cons: nothingAbsolutey hands down best of its class. I have owned many fast sport cars and fast sedans. But have to say for the money the 2011 528i has the power, handles great and gives you the luxury you expect in this class. Seat of the pants feel is great. The ZF transmission makes the best out of a strong, exceptional engine, the powerband is perfect. Also I payed much less than the $48k sticker with premium package which gives you leather and luxury comforts, Metalic paint and satelite radio with USB. Thats makes for a very refined car for the money. BTW my other cars were 911's, Viper, M3, E500 Rentech, 745i, 750i, 535i twin turbo. Of course were just getting out of a recession now. But I'm not settling, I could have bought the single turbo 535i didn't feel the difference was warranted and the E 350 was not as sporty or as roomy. The BMW 2011 528i makes sense all the time. You can push it to it's limit or pull up to any valet at any resort. It's a drivers car with luxury!
Pros: I drive
Advice: build it how u want it.Awesome ride.
