(page 8 of 10)
BMW knows the importance of keeping you connected even when you're on the road. The new 2011 BMW 535i sedan is the perfect must-have for business executives. It's your own mobile office on wheels. BMW's state-of-the-art ConnectedDrive system's innovative features keep you connected—no matter where you go. BMW's 5 Series drivers can upload business listings, street addresses and phone numbers—even access navigational assistance.
The Mobile Office displays smartphone e-mails and text messages on the iDrive screen when your vehicle is stationary. If you're driving, the system will read them to you so you'll never have to take your eyes off the road.
All information, entertainment and comfort features are controlled via the iDrive system. The new iDrive system also can access the BMW Assist® services. The BMW Assist Safety Plan—included for four years at no extra costs—offers an arsenal of safety, security and convenience services to keep your passengers and you safe.
It's the perfect car for business executives on the move.
"One of the reasons why I am such a big BMW fan is because it saved my wife's life."
"I've been a big BMW fan for a long time. I purchased the 2010 BMW 335i with an M-Sport Package. The 3 Series is a delight to drive. It's a quiet, solid car – a strong vehicle.
As a matter of fact, one of the reasons why I am such a big BMW fan is because it saved my wife's life. She had a 1999 BMW M3 convertible. When she was first learning how to drive, she was in an accident and ran off the third floor of a parking garage. The car landed upside down and the only thing she had was a bruise on her knee. If it were any other car, she wouldn't still be with us. It was amazing that the roll bar that's built into the windshield frame was so strong, that the glass didn't even break. It's a miracle that she survived.
When you experience these kinds of situations, you realize, it matters what kind of vehicle you drive. What matters is how safe the car is. In the newer BMW models, there's also a system in the vehicle that automatically calls emergency responders."
