Finally, a review that's more inline with the way I view my car.....

I'm glad they liked it, after reading so many negative reviews from BMW afficinaidos I was starting to think I made a mistake ordering a 535xi. I remember when I ordered my 08, I was thinking ugh, no body likes the style of this car. I realized soon after taking delivery and driving the car that it is the nicest car I have ever owned, funky exterior or not. Now with 2011 I'm thinking disregard the negatives and enjoy a nice new ride!!

I can't wait for my 11 to get here......

All true; very nice car. Great drive with comfort. I like to follow the experiences of other forum members though to avoid problems of N54 and now N55 engines.

I understand the importance of reading about the experiences of other members reviews. The pulling right issue stunned me, I'm concerned about it. It didn't stop me from buying tho. Engin probs, same thing, I just have to hope my car comes problem free.....

This reviewer found exactly the same issues as all the others. He just chose to look past them and see that overall this is a great car. But he had the same observations as every other review of this car ie: steering is numb, suspension is alittle softer with more body roll even in sport mode, and the performance numbers are down across the board with the exception of the brakes. These were all things he mentioned as does everyone else. It doesn't make the car bad but it is real. It's just funny to me when people won't acknowledge that.
