    2011 BMW 550

    Why Make the Seven

    Pros: Luxury personified

    Cons: Luxury personified

    I recently took ownership of a 2011 535xdrive. I never drove the vehicle since I had owned two prior 5 series vehicles. This car is as close to pure luxury when kep the the comfort mode as anything you can find. It is much larger and rommier than it's predecessor. In the sport mode, it behaves a little more like what we would expect, but still not quite what it was. I think there are going to be a lot of BMW enthusiasts who are not happy with this car for the above reasons. I dont know who would buy the seven. You can buy a 550 and save 15k. Since I am not a kid anymore (67) and I have an E550 coupe that in the sport mode or otherwise feels much more sporty than the BMW I can live with it and enjoy it. It is still a techno monster. But overall i would endorse it

    2006 BMW M5

    Awesome M5

    Pros: Comfort access seats. I leave them active all the time for when you get into corners that just grab you and keep you in place.

    Cons: Fuel economy

    Great car. The BMW badge says it all, 'The Ultimate Driving Machine' It's a great car to drive, handles well, awesome power, and seats 4 adults comfortably if you're going out. Just a fun car. It definitely doesn't go easy on the fuel. Other than that I love it.

    2011 BMW 535

    The legend continues

    Pros: acceleration and handling

    Cons: a bit more head room

    The brand new 535 for 2011 is by a considerable margin, the best yet. Longer, wider and more luxurious. The new turbo 6 is fab. Everything about the car is fun. Pure driving pleasure

    2004 BMW X3

    Pros: seat memory

    Cons: bouncy ride

    would be nice if the rear seats could lay flat for more cargo space

    2003 BMW 330

    BMW 330i - Love the drive, hate the expences!!

    Pros: Handling!

    Cons: Poor Built of some parts and poor electronics!

    Pros: Fantastic Handling, less power compared to competition like the Lexus IS350. The steptronic tranny is nice. Average fuel efficiency. Cons - Suspention parts falling apart only at 80,000km, few sensors needed change, all brakes had to be replaced, rust and even much more. All this after babying the car with everything best. My 2004 Accord has 180,000 km and till date had not needed any parts replaced except the front brakes and rotors. Much more comfortable as well.
