First time buying a bmw

So much fun to drive and very smooth. It shifts into gears smoothly. Seats are very comfy . High performance. Perfect for someone looking for a fun yet stylish car .

Drives smooth

I love the vehicle. It ride smooth and you feel like you are in a race car. I could basically live in that car. It’s a good car

535i Is Not Exhilarating or a Driver's Car

This car is not nimble, is weak, the power doesn't feel raw, perhaps muted and not enjoyable to rev out. The front interior space is ample yet the back space is cramped in the leg area. The Nappa leather is too soft and my crease easily. The performance isn't there, the car is too heavy. Perhaps look into a 528i as the car has sufficient power and may feel more nimble as it weighs 150-200 pounds less. Don't expect the car to handle wheel, you'll need to use your breaks a lot because the car does not inspire confidence.

Review for 2016 535i M Sport

This is one of the best looking cars out there and I prefer it to the 2017 and newer styling. The interior is very high quality, spacious, comfortable, and sleek looking. It's got all the power you'll need for street and highway driving. Sport and sport+ modes with the paddle shifters, tightened steering and firmer suspension make for a formidable drivers car. Got mine four years old with only 14k miles so basically new but about one third the cost. I would highly recommend a low miles idea BMW 5 series.

Love this car!

Grabs the road like no other car I have driven. Bought the xDrive for Rochester winter. It performs very well in snow! Very solid feel.

Luv My Beemer

I luv my car. Waited so long to own one and finally was abvle to buy one. I highly recommend one. I bought a 535 because of the size and cylinder twin turbo. 328 was a little too small for me.

BMW for life!!

BMW doesn’t disappoint me ever. I’ve had a 745 and 2 535i’s. This is the make I’ll drive forever because of its comfort, power and style.

Great car, but not the ultimate driving machine

This is a luxury car. It is not a sports car. Buy it for a great driving, safe, fast, comfortable car. Handling is fair and not up to what I would consider older BMW standards. That does not mean it isn’t a solid car. It is. Great features. I highly recommend buying one fully loaded. I’m partial to the real leather interior found on the luxury line and the 19” wheels.

Nice ride

Great car. Stylish and reliable. Great performance. Good gas mileage. Love the different driving modes from Eco to sport +. 2017 model not as nice as 2016.
