Where are the 530e reviews?

9 posts in this topic

I'm a current F10 520d Luxury company car driver and I've just ordered a 530e for delivery in July (!), I'm hoping June.  I've looked everywhere for a review of the 530e by someone that has actually driven one and can find nothing - not a thing.  Anyone know of any published first drives or anyone got one on here who can tell us about it?

 

My Spec is:

 

530e SE

Glacier Silver

Variable damper Control

BMW Loudspeaker upgrade

heated front and rear seats

heated steering wheel

Display Key

Hi Tim,

 

I can't find anything either!  Very frustrating!  Mine is due for 15th May delivery so I'll add a review.  It will be a great car though!

MKLad, i saw yours on the forum and am looking forward to an in depth road test report.  Love the Ivory White interior but it would last seconds with my 3 kids on it.  Cognac for me!!  3 and a bit weeks to wait.  I'm really looking forward to going from 184bhp to 248 along with the relative quiet of the petrol engine...

Luke warm reviews tbh.  Yes the 530d / 530i is the better car but run it as a company car and the tax is horrendous.  It'll still be better than the Merc / Audi anyway so I'm not too concerned.

It's not the 530d I would have if privately owned but as a company car, it makes perfect sense.  It's quicker than my 520d and much, much less generous to HMRC.  Thanks for the heads up.
