Ultimate 5 by Pete from Wichita on 11/15/2012. Trim: 2010 BMW 528i, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Gas mileage. Handleing, comfortable on the road. Responsive
Overall review: We have owned and driven BMW over 20 years. This one has been the best. No problems, no recalls, all positive.

Outstanding Engineering and Styling by James Thornburn on 02/03/2010. Trim: 2010 BMW 528i, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Looks gorgeous and luxurious. Even with many of them on the road, the BMW still stands out with its design. Performance is unsurpassed. External quality great. Internal quality can be better. For example, softer leather, more interesting radio/dashboard appearance, but these are trivial details.
Cons: I have had three BMW 5 series in my life. Although the quality keeps improving - electrical system, engine cooling problems, A/C all better with each new car - the iDrive still baffles me. Maybe I am not that technologically skilled, but I don't like using it. The electical system is more complex, but BMW has sorted out all the earlier problems. However simple is the best. Just give me the knobs and dials and I'm a happy camper!
Overall review: Great car. Compares with the Lexus in quality [except lately with Toyota's quality issues!], but BMW engineering and styling is still the most unique in the market. When you are paying that much for a car, you have to have it all.

Do not buy this car by Rob on 06/16/2010. Trim: 2010 BMW 535i, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Read my review of the 2008 535i. Same car. Same problems
Cons: I really did not care for the repeated fuel delivery and software issues or driving through Montana with the warning lights on. Arranging for flat bed towing from Utah to Las Vegas wasn't much fun either. Nor was the response from BMW that 3 software replacements, 2 fuel pump replacements and 1 fuel injector replacement constituted normal repairs in the first 20K miles. Buy an Infiniti and forget the unreliable BMW product. PLEASE read the blogs regarding the N54 engine problems before buying this car. I wish I had.
Overall review: Do not buy this car!!!! Not worth the risk for that kind of money.

Super car, BUY IT by Hemal on 06/03/2010. Trim: 2010 BMW 550i, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: What a car, bring tears of joy when its jumps from 0 to whatever and pegs you back in your seat. Sport package is amazingly smooth, don't feel bumps but still feel 'sporty' . rear collision detection is great, head-up display is amazing, its fun to see those numbers flip fast as you accelerate. If you have money buy it :-) mine is 72k with options. Good average for 400 hp engine
Overall review: Best car hands down.

Luxury and Quiet is the BMW 528I by Richard on 03/07/2010. Trim: 2010 BMW 528i, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I left Volkwagen and Lexus for the BMW series. This is by far the best sedan so far. Excellent sound system. Load the DVD's and take them out of the car. The blue tooth feature is awesome and the voice activation is great for dialing and changing stereo stations. The car is very quiet, and better mileage than expected. I am averaging 30 on highway and 24 on backroads in the hill country of San Antonio
Cons: leg room in back seat is limited and I often run out of places to place glasses, and all the junk you carry in a car. The iphone takes most of the space in between the seats in the storage compartment.
Overall review: If you want a car that is quiet, easy to drive and has every technological device you would want then this is the car. I especially love the cd/dvd feature of copying your CD's to memory and removing them for storage.
