Fifth Gear reviews the 530d GT

Fifth Gear reviews the 530d GT and has positive things to say, including that it handles better than some sports cars. See Vicki Butler's review inside.

Watch from 2:25 seconds in.

The similarly priced and fully optioned Nissan GT-R will blow the crap out of a fully optioned 550i GT. Different category cars, but for the price the Nissan GT-R is way more desirable and well equipped.
If they are in two different categories why would you even make a comparison?? Two different things for two different buyers.

Not a huge fan personally of the look of the car - but it is cool in terms of features/functionality!
My ///M is in my garage .... and it is a beast!
