Exterior Excellent Styling with gives the car a very elegant , yet sporty appearance. An able successor to the E60 which was a path breaking car in its own right. 


Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Very refined and high quality. Ambient lighting adds to the feel of refinement. 


Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox The 535i delivers great performance and the 8 speed automatic transmission delivers the power where you need it with precision. For the kind of performance it delivers the fuel economy is good. The engine is refined with a great bandwith of power delivery. 


Ride Quality & Handling Extremely refined. The car drives effortlessly at low speeds as well as at high speeds. I needed to program the warning beep to ensure that I do not cross the speed limits otherwise without knowing you are past 140km/h. At high speeds , one feels in full control of car and braking is excellent. Cornering is excellent. Very comfortable to drive in high traffic and at low speeds too.


Final Words Hard to find any flaws in this car. A car which has a huge bandwidth of personality. One moment you can be driving it a comfortable constant speed and the moment you press the accelerator it transforms into an able sporty car.


Areas of improvement I can'f find any flaws in this car.
