But compared with some rival systems, it often requires a few more twirls and clicks to get what you want. Handling is taut and agile, though the sedan has evolved to focus on luxury and refinement rather than overtly sporty driving. So far very reliable and cost efficient.
From the driver seat, the diesel 5 Series sedan is remarkably quiet, and when you do hear the engine, it sounds much like the gasoline-powered inline six-cylinder in the 535i. It comes back only to drop again. Meanwhile, the V8-powered 550i now makes 443 horsepower, up from 400 last year. Kept my '08 328 until I had over 150k miles on it. Under the hood of the 535i is a 330-hp turbocharged, 3. See your dealer for details. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while xDrive models are all-wheel-drive.
Overall, iDrive is pretty easy to use thanks to straightforward menus, crisp graphics and quick processing times. Plus, the 600 Mile range means less fuel stops.

Its steering has lost some of the feel we've come to associate with previous 5 Series. My 2014 runs out of Warranty in October.
The high-performance M5 and ActiveHybrid 5 models are reviewed separately. I think the car would be worth it. Other than routine maintenance it's been in for the 3G? Vehicle suddenly and without warning shut off. You'll also notice minor exterior styling revisions, and inside you'll find slightly more storage space along with new options like a personal concierge service and a rear entertainment system. Handling also great for such a large sedan. I think the car would be worth it. High-tech controls take some getting used to, with a center dial that operates many functions and is monitored through a central screen.
After running it through the Service Department it has zero defects mechanically and we expect to drive that car for another decade or two. Fortunately, there's a button to disable this system if it bothers you. The way I buy my cars is this, its not about how much the car could cost, its more about how much you can afford.

In the 5 Series, the iDrive system consists of a wide screen in the center of the dashboard and a dial-shaped controller on the center console. The vehicle was not repaired for the timing chain failure due to the repair fees. I am concerned about the safety of a vehicle that becomes dysfunctional in that way. This issue has been worked on for months now and the fix doesn¿T last but couple months at best. Speedometer reads high by 4 kms at 100 kph and 5 kms at 125 kph.
