Because he loves bmw
I've been driving this car for a little over a year and it still excites me. With the upgraded seats it's comfortable for the driver and the passengers alike. There is ample room in the back seat for three ordinarily sized adults. Performance wise, it's a marvel. It does whatever you ask it to do, depress the accelerator and it goes, it will go as fast as you want it to, and quickly too. It handles like a dream. The ride is smooth and the interior is quiet. Reviewers said the I-Drive was difficult to learn and operate, nothing is further from the truth. It's intuitive and easy to operate. One complaint I do have is that the back up sensors are slow to activate and most times I have negotiated my way out of a tight parking space before the sensors even start working. Once you have parked and placed the car in park, the sensor does not stop beeping. Even the back up sensor in my Ford works better. That was an expensive option, and I am disappointed that it doesn't work better. All in all this vehicle is top of the line!
After changing jobs where I had a 2009 Mercedes company car, I bought a 350z for fun. I drive over an hour to work each way and as much as the Z was fast and fun it was not comfortable. One of my coworkers had a 528i and I really liked it but I have a 328i that never excited me. I was looking at MB E series and Lexus instead. After getting a great trade in I was wandering the CarMax lot and stumbled upon a a black 535i with medium brown leather interior. This car is absolutely beautiful and drives like a dream. The twin turbo with the 3.0L six is smooth and powerful. It looks classy and has more toys than Santa. It cruises at 80 mph like standing still. This big car is giving me 22.1 mpg in mixed conditions, only 1 mpg less than the tiny 350z.
