|BMW 530i SMG – 2004
Overall Rating: 4
Experience Date:Apr 06, 2004
Fun, Sporty and big, Well designed, Sport Manual Gearbox
Expensive, Marginally underpowered
I drove one of these at The Ultimate Drive. It was a lot of fun. The highlight was the SMG (Sport Manual Gearbox) that allows you to shift with paddles on the wheel formula one style. Not like the Lexus IS (and other cars that are essentially an automatic transmission that you are controlling), the SMG makes you feel MUCH more in touch with the shifting process.
