    My car

    I own this 530i and i love it, the style never die and the proformance you can't beat, people talk about audi's and merc's but this is something else, go for it and never look back.

    My car

    I have had my new 550i SE for 4 weeks now and all I can say is that this can has exceeded all my expectations.

    I can fault nothing at all with it, the ride is firm but never harsh, the steering precise and full of feel and simply enormous power from the 4.8 litre v8.

    Fantastic

    My car

    This is the first car I have ever owned (in 30 years' motoring) where I actually like it more every time I get behind the wheel. Normally, the initial pleasure of a new car wears off as little niggles become apparent, but this 5 series confounds expectations by revealing additional delights as I become more familiar with it. Now 8,000 miles since new and I love it more than ever. I have no hesitation in recommending this car to anyone wanting good looks, performance, refinement, image, economy and great quality. What more could anyone want?

    My car

    i have owned this car for 9 months now and i have been extremely let down by the recent snow .this car has done 12000 miles and is efficient dynamics model on 57 plate with auto box and 19 inch alloys and it will just about climb a gentle hill under snow conditions with dtc activated.i understand its arear wheel drive and low profile tyres but i was expecting not to be overtaken on snow covered hill roads by all and sundry while i was literally crabbing up the the hill at 5 mph with prayers on my wifes lips.
