After 6 months with my '08 528i, here's my take on this. The car is deliberately sluggish unless in sport mode or pushed, in order to conserve fuel use. I'm fine with that and can't get over just...

Demised Cupholder

The passenger side cupholder mechanism was malfunctioning, not staying stowed reliably. You know what happened next. Since everything around the cupholder is black, in a poorly-lit garage one could...

All season = no season, say the performance folks, and they're 70% correct. I would not consider anything other than touring - to - summer high performance tires in West Texas. Up north here, snows...

I looked at an '07 530, just under 30K mi, that the indy dealer offered to sell at $27K, no CPO. Another dealer had a nice 525, same year, CPO, at $29K and would likely go for less, similar mileage....

Just took delivery on my '08 528 i. Standard sound was better than the other cars I auditioned, but none were anywhere close to my '00 Saab 9-5 Aero, with the HK premium system and upgraded Infinity...

Thanks for the responses. I did the deal for a '08 528i dealer courtesy car this evening with well under 5K miles. Exactly the options I wanted, at a price point 5% under average Edmunds/KBB/NADA...

528 vs A6 vs M35x

After 9 years and 130K miles, it's time to retire my '00 Saab 9.5 Aero and move on. Current Saabs are too cost-reduced inside and the company's future is uncertain.

I'm looking at an '08 528i...
