Read Jennifer Misaros's comments on driving the 2008 BMW 535xi.
This 5-series does nothing for me. Yeah the engine is great, the steering and handling are great, blah, blah, blah, but I found myself bored while driving, and annoyed at the iDrive (nothing new there). And it's ugly to boot. It looks like the previous generation Camry, which is to say completely unremarkable.
