Beautiful BMW

by SteelerGirl from Charlotte on Thu Oct 22 2020

This car is simply beautiful, spacious, unique color. It is gorgeous inside out. You don't see too many BMWs this color so I think it is unique color. It has one of the smoothest ride, which I find a plus for long trips. Love it!

Fast and comfortable

by Luis M from Jessup, MD on Tue Mar 10 2020

Found this used BMW with all the bells and whistles at a reasonable price. It's very responsive at the throttle and feels like it grips the road. It's a sporty but comfortable ride.

Our Take on the 2017 BMW 530

The 2017 BMW 5 Series is comfortable, quick and loaded with tech, but its "Ultimate Driving Machine" moniker is no longer appropriate.

Versus the competition:


The focus on comfort and accessibility has dulled the 5 Series into average status among luxury sedans; it’s no longer focused on enthusiast buyers but will likely be more appealing to the general public.

It’s sad when something isn’t as good as you remember it to be. Like a familiar restaurant that no longer makes your favorite dish or a favorite musician who can’t quite hit all their notes in concert anymore.

That’s how I feel after spending a week with not one but two BMW 5 Series sedans, the 2017 BMW 540i and 530i xDrive. Make no mistake: These are fine automobiles, nicer inside than they’ve ever been and chock-full of amazing technology (some useful, some silly). They’re powerful, efficient, quick and smooth. But they’ve most assuredly lost the mojo that used to make BMWs sing in the hands of enthusiast drivers. In a quest to chase sales, BMW has... Read More
