2008 BMW 5 Series Review

Overview
Power drives us forward. Intelligence guides our journey. Alone each is a force to be reckoned with. Together they are unstoppable. The BMW 5 Series. Perfection perfected. Even at rest the 2008 5 series appears to be passing everything by. And the instant you step on the throttle like the 550i’s 4.8-liter 360-hp V-8 engine with Valvetronic makes this illusion a thrilling reality. Imagine not taking your eyes off the road and still being able to see key driving information like speed navigation directions and more. BMW’s head-up Display will do just that for you. The 5 series delivers unsurpassed performance and agility all while catering to each occupant with luxurious comforts. Equipped with innovations like a Start/Stop button enhanced DSC featuring Brake Drying Hill Start Assist and Soft Stop and a richly detailed cabin the 5 series is everything a demanding driver could want and more. Part Athlete. Part Genius. All BMW. The 2008 5 Series.
