Mein Auto: 535i xdrive


I truly love my 535i Xdrive, the power is great and plenty fast for me at age 64.
I have driven hot rods, big block Chevy's, Pontiac's and Corvettes since I was 20.
does the 5 series pull you back in the seats or burn rubber half way down the track?
No. what it does do is after the first few feet and the twin turbo spools up, it just takes off the rpm goes up and the 8 speed tranny does the job, it is so fun to drive. Now for the bad part, my wife keeps the car almost all the time, oh and by the way she is a driver too, I mean a real road driver and if you don't believe it just get behind her and keep up you will be worried about the cops. I am not kidding.

OK, now for the couple things I don't like, not particularly fond of the radio or the navigation system, but I can deal with that. Here it is, JUST TRY TO FIND THE DARN FUSE that goes to anything. The fuse block behind the glove box is ridicules. To build such a great car; the this crazy place to put the fuse block. Why in the world can't they print out a diagram that shows the exact fuse for the exact thing you are looking for.
