Avoid this vehicle at all costs by An MSN Autos Consumer on 07/05/2007. Trim: 2008 BMW 535i Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: Seems like a nice car...if it worked.
Cons: My brand new 535i--less than 700 miles--went into the dealer to have CD changer installed and never came out. The vehicle's computer crashed during the installation process, and there are no replacement parts anywhere in the country. Best case is that part may be available in a few weeks. Till then, no car. BMW North America was no help at all. "These things happen. Car will be repaired as soon as part is availabe."
Overall review: Avoid this vehicle (and BMW in general). Unreliable and unbelievably bad custormer relations.
