I love the led lights in front of my car & you can change it to the angel eyes.

I bought my BMW used, but it was in great condition. Has special features: lots of space in the front as well as in the back for my passengers, automatic everything, sunroof. When there is a problem with my car either leakage, low tires, overheating, the car will alert you and sometimes slow down if you are driving to pull to the side. This is my third BMW and all my cars have been a great experience for me. Easy to buy parts and upgrade to sports package.

The features of my 2012 BMW 5 series that I enjoy the most!

Its push button start is great. I like the heated seats, including the back seats. It has a sport, comfort, and traction mode. Back up camera, Bluetooth. It saves gas because it shuts off while you are at a stop light. It has memory seat adjustments that are set with each key. I do not like that I can not have the windshield defrost on at the same time as I have heat blowing on my feet.

Review of 2012 BMW 528i. Great luxury vehicle.

Performance is excellent, my only complaint is it takes a few seconds for the turbo to kick in, quick fix is to switch to sport mode. It is comfortable, but I wish the lumbar support would go lower. Lots of good features, such as the I drive options. I wish there were more physical storage areas in the front of the car (there's no good spot for large phones to be placed securely).
