The BMW 528i, the best-selling automobile in the German carmaker’s “5” Series, epitomizes the high-end luxury sports sedan. Bavarian Motor Works actually characterizes the 528i as “performance and luxury in perfect balance.”
BMW powers its 528i with a magnesium-and-aluminum 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine that produces 230 horsepower. BMW equips the 528i’s normally aspirated engine with Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology. The power plant features controlled engine cooling, an eight-speed manual gearbox and a direct ignition system. The BMW 528i will take you from zero to 60 in 6.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 150 miles per hour.
The 528i also sports all-season run-flat tires on 17-inch light alloy wheels standard, while the Sport Package option includes high-performance run-flat tires 18-inch light on alloy wheels.
With its engineers packing the 528i with so much comfort/safety technology, BMW quips, “the only thing left to the driver is the driving.” There’s an iPod and iPhone integration system, satellite radio, Bluetooth wireless equipment, an on-board navigation system with traffic alerts, night vision and park-distance control. The 528i also comes with BMW Assist, a superior braking system and dynamic stability controls.
The BMW 528i also features leatherette upholstery, a rechargeable flashlight in the glove box, four power outlets and a dual-zone automatic climate control with dynamic micro-filtration.
The BMW 528i shows off energetic performance effortlessly and, at the same time, provides good fuel economy and economical operating costs. The 528i can out-corner, out-brake and out-accelerate some costly sports cars while providing seating for five. The 528i’s aerodynamically designed body and features give it a microscopic 0.28 drag coefficient without sacrificing any torsional rigidity.
Maintaining a high-end luxury sports sedan with anything less than quality BMW parts is just wrong. Purchasing cheap auto parts for repairs is a mistake. They won’t allow your world-class car to perform the way it was intended and they will be break down quickly. Replacement car parts online and car accessories from a trusted foreign auto parts dealer like All-Import Auto Parts is the best way to keep your 528i looking great and flying down the highway.
