    Any '09 changes to improve side impact crash test?

    I would like to buy a 2009 535xi but have reservations due to poor crash test results on the 2008 model in 2007 IIHS test. Does anyone know if they made any changes for 2009 to address this? Thanks

    I dug into that one a bit

    ...from what I gather the bad results were essentially confined to the driver's seat due to the position of the door's arm rest. The door panel has been redesigned with the car's refresh so I have to imagine the situation was corrected.

    All other aspects of the crash test got full marks.

    I have a 09 wagon on order.
