This is a great car! I am an owner driving it for 2.5 years so far and it has been doing awesome! Highly recommend it to all potential owners.

The Review

Came to PML for the 520i Luxury. Very impressed with the comfort and smoothness of the 2.0L 4 cyclinder twin turbo petrol engine. As most reviews on the 7th generation 5 Series have already indicated, the dash is a smorgasbord or technology. Couldn't find a fault in the test drive. Curiosity then got the better of me when I test drove the 530i M Sport. This is the 5 Series on steroids. Driving both back to back, the power, the improved stiffness in the suspension and the precise handing is obvious. While the 520i is a wonderful car when compared to the 6th generation 5 Series, the 530i M Sport is FANTASTIC. Simply blown away.

The Review

Handsome design, IMO. Not one that'll feel outdated after awhile. Minimalist dashboard, futuristed iCockpit & interior have a premium feel. Small steering wheel make it feel sportier to drive, comfy to hold. Adjust your seat properly and it won't block the dashboard. Smooth drive and handling. Full glass moonroof, nice view esp when it rains! Satifactory FC despite med-heavy traffic along BtTimah Rd during weekdays, minimal hwy usage. Automated reverse & parallel parking mode is so cool. Taking a chance on the new Puretech model since the old 308 had issues, but so far so good, all reviews seem positive, we're loving it! Dislike the ECO start/stop, esp in jams. Most often I'd disable it. Design fault in rattling subframe got replaced under warranty after 8,000km, newer models shldn't be affected.

Strengths

Good pick up for a 1200cc engine. Punchy!
Blind spot detection is very useful
Huge boot space. Lugged home a 2m tall cabinet with seats folded of cos.

Weaknesses

Gears are a tad slow to kickdown, gotta learn to use brakes more to slow down from fast speed.
Slight vibration felt at extreme slow speed.

Not a great car. Highly tempramental. Interior materials are nice and solid but engine is highly unreliable and numerous problems over the years I've owned it. Fuel pump faulty after 3 yrs, water pump faulty after 3 years. Was told Intake pipes are made of recycled materials. In 5 years I've changed it twice due to cracks at the joints. Recently head gasket leaking. Rear Coolant bypass pipe leaking. Engine mounts cracked after 5 years. Rattling sound from engine when cold. Research on the web suggests it is a chain tensioner problem. Consumption is pathetic at 7.2km/l in average city driving.

The Review

Owned this car for a couple of months now (bought it second hand, nearly 10 years old but impeccably kept). Lightweight, acceleration is good (not lightning fast but much faster than a picanto and certainly good enough). When it's just me driving it's quite fun, when the family is in it's slower but also more stable and I wouldn't drive that fast with them anyway so no complaints. Car is bigger inside than it looks outside. Smooth auto transmission. Nice touches like a warning buzzer if you drive off without fully disengaging parking brake. Great visibility. Boot has enough space for our baby's stroller plus quite a few bags. Great fuel consumption (my worst, at around 50% highway 50% city, was 14km/l; best so far is 17km/l with 90% highway and filling up the tank at halfway mark). Nice sound system. Very tight turning circle (can do 180 degree turn at HDB rubbish chute) Also, the car has personality. Unique and interesting, and spacious inside. Much more interesting than the normal looking Axios, Latios, Lancers, Sunnys etc. Downsides: No auto fold mirror, not as big a boot as a sedan like Latio. Suspension bottoms out a bit on big bumps when I have passengers at the back (to be expected).

Strengths

Fuel consumption, reliability, personality, interior space, sound system, overall quality, manouverability, visibility

Weaknesses

Boot size (but still enough for me!), no auto fold mirror
