How do you mean smallest engine is the 528, you also have the 520.

I cannot get myself to liking the latest 5-series. I am a BMW conservative and it always takes me time to get to like new models, but with this 5 I cannot help but feeling negative about it.

The starting engine in the US is 528.

1-series with the 3.5 liter turbo.

The most old school BMW experience available.

Wow, didn't know that. 528 is already a big engine over here.

I'll echo what some other have said: 3-series coupe then 5-series. The E90 sedan/saloon looks terrible. The differences in the E46 coupe and the saloon/sedan were very few, at least from a exterior design stand-point.

I still can't decide which one I prefer. Luckily, I have no plans of buying either so this isn't a serious problem.

What?!? No chauffeured Maybach? I though you were rich. (Seriously, if I comfortably get around Edmonton without a car, I'd sell mine for sure. Driving is a huge pain in the ass.)

Its a pretty cool car, but nowhere close to deserving its absurd sticker price in its day. No B pillar ont he windows is pretty cool. Its a pain in the ass to get into the trunk where the batteries are if they are dead!

You mean the "Rich Man's Ford Probe" (magazine verdict, not mine)?
