My Ride: My ex-ride: EU '08 LCI 520dA. Space Grey, Sport Seats in Black Leather/Fabric Anthracite, Sport Steering Wheel, A/C with Extended Features, Hi-Fi Speakers, Cup Holders, Cruise with Braking function, Folding Rear Seats, Xenons, Park Distance Control.

The TM must be the most honored car and tech mag overhere.

They did testdrive the LCI 535d as a Touring Sport.

The cars retail price is in Finland 83,000 and the car had about 25,000 worth of extras.
So all in all a 108,000 Euro car ($146,000)

They only thing that they did find bad was the highway road appearance;
Tendesly to circuitous on the road (tramlining) and too much road noice.

18" RF tyres do not suite the Finnish shitty roads!

My Ride: F11 520d

Tekniikan Maailma also missed X-drive to 535d. They said that X3 has same engine with X-drive, so there should not be any technical reasons why BMW do not make 535Xd. That would be definitely be my dream car

After driving my car couple weeks I wonder why car mag's are quite polite with 5-series steering. Car requires continious steering on highway and in slow speed corners you have to turn steering also back. Almost all cars has good self-returning (or what ever it's called in english), but e60 is like Mercedes. :thumbsdown:
