Used 2008 BMW 535 XI in Dulles, VA
Reviews for 2008 BMW 535
I just got my money back on a 2009 535i that I owned for only two weeks, and it was in the shop the entire time. Our car only had 15000 miles on it and I did not even run one tank of gas through it. The twin turbo engine in these cars have serious issues and BMW knows it, that's why they don't build this engine anymore. The high pressure fuel pump and fuel delivery systems are poorly designed. If you have a brain in your head do not buy any cars built by BMW that have the N54 twin turbo engine. Ours messed up on the second day of ownership and stayed in the shop for two weeks, I guess it is still there BMW service is lousy, instead of fixing the problem they try to re-program the cars and it does not work. There is a class action lawsuit currently filed in California against BMW North America concerning the engine in these cars and other models BMW builds with this engine. Don't believe me Google it. Do not buy this car!
All I can say is wow what a car. I love it. Having had many nice cars in the past driving the 535i is far and away the best car I have owned! Get one and you will agree!
BMW 535i review
I reviewed the whole line of used luxury performance cars over a year period... tested M5, 550, 535, m35, m45, a6. The 535 has the best gas mileage, best build quality, M5 has best performance and best handling but terrible gas and maintenance will be expensive. The only downside of the 535 is that it does not have cooling seats which is a feature I love about the Infiniti. 550 is nice looking with the sport package but is a heavier car plus worse gas mileage. Used Audi couldn't compete. 535 rear room is more cramped than the Infiniti, but can fit 2 carseats and good for adults for quick trips. Overall it's the best bang for your buck...choose features carefully, everything on BMW is extra so do your research on what you want in your car... Nav, heated seats, sport suspension, paddle shifters etc etc. If you like driving and handling but you need a good overall luxury car that isn't a race car all the time... the 535 is awesome IMO.
