What are people saying about the 5 Series

"The 5′s interior was about as you’d expect from a BMW – meaning not one material was short of top notch and each seat was a pleasant place in which to spend some time."
leftlanenews.com | talking about the vehicle's interior quality
"Undeniably modern, it nonetheless took us back to the E39-era 5-Series (think 1996 through 2003), a crisp but sleek interpretation of a four-door BMW."
