The car is sleek and fun to drive and is getting about 25mpg, which I think is pretty good. I like the features in the car and it has been a pleasure to own.
I do currently have it in for warranty work and I guess they found a transmission leak as well as an oil leak, which is unnerving at 22k miles, but they are covering it all and gave me a new X5 as a loaner while they fix it... so I would say just be sure to get the extended warranty.
Indeed the ULTIMATE Driving Machine

This is the PERFECT configuration of a BMW for most drivers!
The 300 hp twin turbo v6 engine has no lag, great torque and more horsepower to push you over all the legal speed limits in the US freeways within 6-8 seconds! Even overtaking traffic going uphill with a full load is so fluid and effortless. A surprise to so many trying it out for the first time. For those who have felt other turbo equipped cars, you will be very surprised at how silent and smooth this one is. You'll only feel the torque pushing you back in your chair until you release the gas. It's pretty good for a turbo V6 gas efficiency wise...you'll likely average around 24 mpg driving freeway and city streets in the Southern California area.
Like many modern BMW models, it is governed at 150mph, but if it wasn't, it's got so much more juice in it to go past that (why spend more on the more expensive models?). This car is made in Munich, Germany. It is made to drive on the Autobanh (with no speed limits) and last a long time. In fact, the break in recommendation is not to drive it over 100 mph the first 1200 miles.
The 5 series sedan is just the right size for having up to 3 people in the car (the 3-series is really too tight for that compared to the 5), and the trunk has a nice large storage space that fits large luggage plus more.
This car is meant for the driver to enjoy driving. Elegant, sophisticated inside, and responsive to your driving, one becomes one with the car and feels the trip with an air of comfort, elegance and confidence on the road.
Well rounded daily driver, a "Jack of all trades".
2012 BMW 535Matt Shelton - Thomson, GA09/12/2015
This 535GT has proven itself to be the ideal car for my wife and me. Their aren't many of these in the states, but if you are looking at mid-size crossovers and suv markets you should look one of these up. it's basically a 7-series without the bleeding edge tech (and prices to match!) but with the added practicality of a hatchback rear door and a higher seat height for comfort and forward visibility. Decent mileage as well.
