    i don't have a 5-series, but I do have a 2005 330i. The car freaking rocks. I am going to sell it to buy the new 335i coupe or convertible. I haven't decided which.

    I test drove the 5 before buying my 3. Also an awesome drive, but a little out of my price range.

    That's actually the car that I'm going to buy once I finish b-school and get my signing. Meanwhile, I'm going to squeeze another year out of my '03 A4, before splurging on the 530i.

    I ordered my 335i sedan about 10 days ago and it probably won't be here til late july at best. i'm not sure about the convertibles but I have heard the coupes have a 4 month wait on custom orders. I am counting down the days till mine comes in. the 335i is freakin sweet.

    My GF just bought a 2004 325i.

    She loves BMWs, but I prefer Lexus.

    IMHO the Japanese luxury cars are made better and last longer than the German ones.

    A soon to be former BMW-owner buddy of mine told me "BMW stands for 'Bad For My Wallet' after 100,000 miles". :D

    my 2006 330i sedan rocks. i got the comfort acess, premium, sport packages. it play mp3s on my ipod. titanium silver with black leather interior with aluminum trim. i was considering the coupe but the center console extends all the way back so there is literally just room for two in the back. :(
