The driver's side is very comfortable, my seat actually hugs me when I get it!

2009 BMW 5 Series 528i

Love driving the vehicle! It's responsive and great on the freeway, fast and it doesn't feel like it. It's very comfortable, both front and back seats. Love the moonroof and that the passenger side view mirror tilts down when I put the car in reverse. For such a well engineered vehicle, the 5 series problems seem to be common to BMW. For example; the engine oil housing needed to replaced and the radiator system. Very expensive to repair and I wonder why these parts are not of a better quality. Like my oil housing piece that cracked used to be made of some kind of metal and the crack could be repaired by welding it. Now its made of some kind of plastic and when it cracks (and it will) you need to buy the whole piece because it is unrepairable.

It goes faster for longer and cheaper.

2009 BMW 5 Series

This BMW is a luxury sports car. The gas pedal is sensitive and you can get up to speed quickly. The cruise control is the best I have had, it saves the last speed you set it to so when you stop you just have to get up to 25 mph and then hit the resume button and it speeds up for you. The leather seats are comfortable and the floor space is roomy. A spacious trunk for groceries, camping supplies, beach toys. Gas mileage is amazing, 10 hour car trip costs about 80 dollars one way. And so far no problems have come up with the car in terms of breaking down. The only problem is most everything in the car is electric and has to be fixed by a professional which is pricy. You can not fix this car at home unless you have the new computer tools.

BMW 528xi Valve Cover and Gasket

2009 BMW 5 Series 528i xDrive

The performance of the car is awesome, but it requires that you use 91 gas which can get expensive. The AWD is fantastic in the snow, and is a must have in the Midwest. I've done routine maintenance as expected, and the only major issue was having to replace a cracked valve cover because BMW decided that a part that is constantly hot/cold should be made out of plastic. This is a pretty expensive repair, but if it was not done, the leaking oil would have gotten on all of the hoses and made them brittle or crack and the smell inside the car while driving was pretty unbearable.
