Bought used, 25k miles, feels, looks new

by MAurelius2019 from Naperville on Wed Jul 03 2019

Going up a year for new dash not worth the tons extra $$$ when ultimately ALL the tech is the same between 2016 and 2017. Only two drawbacks are cupholders a little small/tight and really nowhere to put Galaxy 9+, cupholder to small for it as is center storage. Car is quick and really felt efficient at pretty high speeds on highways but city mpg lacks.

Understated Luxury

by Bob from KANSAS CITY on Tue Jan 22 2019

This car is elegantly designed, has quite impressive handling and power and all the tech features most of us can ask for. Good fuel economy for it's class. The ride is smooth and quiet in comfort mode but comes alive some when put into sport. Quality materials and build throughout.

Decent car, breaks down easily

by LexusRCF from New york on Sat Jun 17 2017

Ive owned this car for about a year and sold it last month. It was a decent car, but it wears down easily. There was a bad noise coming from the engine the month before i sold it and it cosy 6000 to repair. I sold it for a better price though.

535i x drive has plenty of punch and classy, upscale interior. Drive in sport or comfort setting. All the best safety features.

Love my BMW!

by BMW4Life from Atlanta, GA on Mon Mar 13 2017

I purchased my BMW back in 2014. I love my BMW and the quality engineering behind the car. It's great on long road trips and pretty decent on the gas mileage. Repairs can be a little pricey though.

Its a Beemer. What more do you need to know?

by SrKingpin from Fresno on Thu Oct 26 2017

BMW 5 series is a dream to drive. With all the technology theyve built into their cars lately its more than worth the money to drive one of these as a daily driver.

Back to my favorite

by MarylandBMWfan from Maryland on Sun Apr 14 2019

Love it. This is what I had two cars ago-never should have bought my last one (not a Beam)-I will stay loyal from here on. Great comfort and performance. If its like the others I've owned, it will be bomb proof. The Germans make great cars.
