Fresh faced & with new, healthy hearts, BMW’s 2008 5-series has arrived just in time for summer. Available in both sedan and sport wagon styles (It’s all good, family guys- the Germans never refer to them as station wagons), the new 5 benefits from new lighting (front and rear), sharp, subtle front styling, and various interior tweaks.
Under the hood, the 528 and 535 now boast the same engines as the latest 3-series line- a 230 HP 3.0L, and 300 HP twin-turbo 6, respectively. And if the outta control gas prices don’t phase ya, there’s also a 550i with a 4.8L V8 that pumps out 360 horses. It may not look drastically different from the Jones’ down the block, but luxury is all about that subtlety.
