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.

First the 535i Sport is a very fun car to drive the turbo really kicks in to the point that it feels this car has more than 300HP. With that being said not that I have had any problems yet but after doing more reading on the car since I got it there is a whole lot of issues that comes along with this car so buy the extended warranty that is a Major must! Also for the price of this car the sound system is poor at best you would feel buying this type of car that it should at least come with a very good system this is not the case. Over all if you person that likes to drive like your in a video game this is the car for you very sporty and monster on the hwy
Not your E28 or E39
2011 BMW 535Kurt Elward - Charlottesville, VA03/02/2016
The handling is just not what it should be. I am a tried and true 5 series owner and love the balance that used to be there. It just seems too big and lacks the legendary handling, even with the sports package and a manual transmission. The 2011 has very strange placements of interior items - this did change for the better later on. Don't get me wrong - this has incredible power and ease of use. It is just not the great drive it used to be. Get a 428 or a 435 Gran Coupe instead.
