The unthinkable… BMW completely redesigns a car and it promptly gets beat by its two key competitors in a major magazine. It ‘s hard to believe but according to Car and Driver the new 535i is simply not as good as the new Infiniti M37 or the aging Audi A6.

What do we think? While we ‘ve driven the new 550i (you can see Michael ‘s review here) we have yet to get any seat time behind the wheel of the 535i so we ‘ll withhold judgement. Of course this all presupposes that you have respect for C&D.
