    Get the slightly bigger engine so you get the car you paid for and not a 4 pot taxi sounding car,same mpg and small engine will work harder and again it'll sound like a mondeo

    I think the new 5 looks great. Harking back to the E39 days, kinda, hah. Back when the 530i was the big engine (well the big straight 6).

    Lovely that BMW keeps futzing with the engines but leaving the numbers the same. How dare they call it a 530i.

    The best 5er is still the E39. But that is thanks to all its predecessors. The E39 is a peak of a car life time evolution. BMW will have another top of the top 5er again but we are not there yet.

    The 2 liter is just as smooth and punchy in the 3-Series and 5-Series as the 3 liter is in the X5 and X6. And the SUVs/SAVs weigh considerably more. Not to mention, I’m a hardcore driver and my 2014 328i and 2017 X5 always get great mpg. Americans gotta lose that v8 or nothing mentality.

    Majority of y’all don’t need and won’t use half the stuff that ran its price up. Spec smartly, keep the price low and quit bitchin. Don’t like?! Don’t buy!! 🤷🏽‍♂️

    As the host has said on another review “if you have no leg room in the back seat of a sedan, you have failed”

    As an owner of a 2018 M550i, get the V8. You’ll be very happy.

    Didn't the last generation (F10) come with a 260 HP 4 cyl engine?

    Don't all BMW 5 series come standard with back up camera's?

    I am always curious after hearing a reviewer rave (or not) about a vehicle, what they actually have in their home garage/parking space. So, what do you drive?

    I never use sports mode unless I want to pass someone. Sports mode is gas guzzler mode.

    You talk a lot about how great the 4 cylinder is, but no direct comparison to the 6 cylinder?

    Anyone know if hes doing anymore of these Cnet on cars episodes?

    Buy the 4 cylinder? Depends on where you live and where you drive.
    If you live in or near Germany, definitely go for the 6 cylinder.
    More torque and the 6 cylinder is much, much smoother.
