    Any changes from a 07 to a 09 535xi

    As the title says, are there any significant changes from an 07 to an 09 535xi. I need to ask as I drove a 07 two years ago, and it left me feeling numb. I really did not like the steering, and in stock form, I was not impressed with the acceleration.

    Anyway, I am looking again and was curious if anything changed other than the price, LOL

    Thanks in advance.

    Note: My last BMW was back in 05, when I sold my beloved 01 M roadster.

    Google is your friend.

    Sedans received a face lift for 2009.

    There have been accusations that BMW started skimping on parts around 2009: 1) no more flashlight, 2) no more engine fire retardant cover, 3) no more forged internals, etc. That's all I recall.

    A tune will give that 535 the punch you miss from your m roadster, but overall the car will feel numb in comparison, it's supposed to. My dad drives a 2010 535xi and it's great but feels way different than my 335 coupe, it's softer and more refined. I would get the later model if I were you.

    Okay, any difference from an 07 to an 09 335xi then?

    I just really need an x as this will be my work car.

    I REALLY wish they made a convertible in the 335x line.

    No problem. The I-drive is likely the only real change.

    I hear you sticky. It seems that everything from 08 and up is the same. Other than you could get the M package in 10. But since it does nothing for performance, think engine here, I could care lees for my DD.

    The m package looks so good though...thats what my father has. Makes the car really stand out. I wouldn't get dead set on it, but if you can find one with it, why not? His 2010 still has the N54, which is what I would recommend.

    M Sport package is usually useless and just is an extra way for BMW to rob people. But in E60 i highly recommend it. The M tech body kit make the car look better and also it has M tech suspension which is different and sportier than regular 5 or 5 with sport package.

    Funny you say that but if the new 335 had an m sport package it would be an s4 rival then? Lol

    First, there are many many differences between pre-LCI (2004-2007) and LCI E60's (2008-10). Second, the M-sport pkg makes a world of difference in both the feel of the car, as well as the looks. I have a 550 with M-sport and Sports Auto Trans - all I can say is: "WOW!!!!!!"
    Lastly, the iDrive was NOT updated for 2009, the only difference in the iDrive for 2009 was the center console iDrive controller buttons. The iDrive is updated to the same version as the F10 for 2010.
