We did not want to spend any more time with the sales guy so we did not even drive the 3 series, but the 535i test drive was a total disapointment.
The 5 is a very nice car. It's big, heavy, and luxurious. Sporty, not so much anymore. Without the sport suspension, it is the German version of a Buick. It weighs as much as the wife's Toyota minivan (2006).
