A BMW will be my car for life.

2011 BMW 5 Series 528i

I love the comfortable seats and the ability to adjust to exactly my comfort level. I have heated seats that make a huge difference in the winter as well as heated steering wheel. The car has a very powerful engine and handles like a dream. The gas mileage is respectable for a midsize car and is fully equipped with navigation and onboard diagnostic center to let you know if there is any issues or system failures. Comfort, quality and luxury. I will own a BMW for the rest of my life. The company produces quality cars. The drawbacks are the price of the cars and the cost of maintenance and regular servicing of the vehicles. God forbid something happens that isn't covered by the warranty. Service gets very pricey and most of the time you have to bring the vehicle to the dealer because of the specialization of repairs.

Driving a 5-series BMW experience is out of this world!!

2011 BMW 5 Series 535i

The 5-series BMW is a perfect size, it is not to big and not to small. The car is very classy and reliable. The ride is always smooth, I love my 5-series BMW 535i. It is a luxury car with so many nice features inside such as the GPS system, satellite radio and intercom incoming and outgoing calls. All these features are controlled by a small device placed in the center of the console, very futuristic. The car is just a dream, the seats are expensive soft leather that creases your body while driving. So now it is time for a road trip and your hitting the highway, the car can go from 5 mph to another given number in a matter of seconds. I love driving my 5 series in sports mode. In addition this car gives you the option to your driving preference.

2011 BMW 528i a great car with many useful features.

2011 BMW 5 Series

My 2011 BMW 528i is a great car. It comes with leather seats, individual heating controls, as well as adjustable seats. The car drives very smooth and accelerates really good. The car also has Bluetooth connectivity as well as a built in navigation system. Also has sensors that let you know if tire levels are low, oil levels, brake fluid, as well as when the car should be serviced and for what.
