The BMW 5 Series is known for being one of the most unsurpassed sports sedans in the world. It is not easy to make something great, even greater but BMW seemed to manage that. Peterson BMW of Boise is proud of BMW’s latest achievement, the 2012 BMW 528i Sedan. At a starting price of $46,700*, the BMW 528i is considered one of the most affordable luxury sedans. Just because the price is reasonable doesn’t mean it lacks on quality. As a matter of fact, the 528i showcases BMW’s newest engine —a high-precision, direct-injection 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with TwinPower Turbo technology providing an impressive combination of power and efficiency.
