A lion for the mountains! by CSSerious on 09/03/2011. Trim: 2011 BMW 528i, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: I would say three things: super responsive, super quiet and super comfortable. We have driven it occasionally after purchase earlier this year. In one winter trip through the twisty mountain roads in West Virginia, the lion from Bavaria woke up from beneath the hood and left everybody else in the dust. The other cars and SUV's simply did not have the agility to handle the curves at that speed. The icing on the cake is about 30 mpg in highways and free maintenance for several years.If you are a Costco member, you can shop through their auto program, worked for me.
Cons: BMW must consider including an overhead place to keep sunglasses. I cannot think of any other thing that they missed. Do not plan to take it to work if your city is notorious for traffic like mine. It will be sheer waste of your money.
Overall review: Go get one if you ever wanted one. I have never come across anybody, young or old, who did not love the car.
