Reviewed: 2006 BMW 5-Series

4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.0L I6 6-speed shiftable automatic RWD

Why the 2006 BMW 5-Series?

Exterior styling

Distinctive look, high quality paint

Brand reputation & image

BMW has a long standing reputation for handling and performance, and the experience did match the reputation


IT almost feels like your driving am motorcycle it is so well balanced. That kind of nimbleness in a car as large as a 4 door sedan is rare

Powertrain performance

the I-6 has nice linear power that you feel all the way to redline

Fuel economy

I am seeing 22mpg in the city, not bad for 255hp

Why Not the 2006 BMW 5-Series?

Price or payments

for 60k the 5 series seems a bit pricy compared to what you can get from even an acura TL for instance.
