5 series, why no HP?
 
What's BMW's rationale for keeping the 5 series so low in HP? (other than the M of course)....

What do you mean? 528-230hp, 535i-300 (more then the E350)
550i-360?

The 5-series line is updated for MY2007

the 528 isn't a current model, neither is the 535i, at least they're not listed on the "build your own" on BMWUSA.

525i 215
525xi 215
530i 255
550 360


For a big 4 door sedan, that's not a lot of HP, with the exception of the 550.

(i'm just asking, i don't follow the 5 series much, i was bored a few days ago and built one out and was surprised at the low HP #'s)

What engines are in the '07's?

there is no 528 or 535... not yet at least.

For me is not just a question of hp….
It's a question of torque!!:D
The real improvement in BMW engines (besides fuel economy and low emission specs) is TORQUE.:wow:
That’s just my opinion.;)
