I don't think it looks like a civic, but when I see a 5er on the road I sometimes think it is an E46. But if you look at the bmwusa.com site. The opening page with the profiles, the 5er and 3er don't look much alike. I usually look at my E46 in the driveway and think it looks like a coupe with four doors. It's very short looking for a sedan.

As far as your concerns about the vehicle itself. I don't have the CD player, and didn't own a E36(test drove, but not at speeds above 70mph) But I often look down at the speedometer of my E46 and realize I'm doing 15-25 mph faster than I thought. I dont think it feels 'fast' in that sense. (haven't had it too far past 100 yet to see) I have also not heard any whistling noise at any speed.

Could you explain why you say the 528 is worth the extra bucks? I breifly considered it but decided against it due to performance reasons.
