My new Bimmer: 2013 535i M-SPORT .... Life is good!
 
23 Attachment(s)
Hey guys, I took delivery of my brand new 2013 535i today. I had three used ones in site, but they were sold by the time I got there after work.
This is my dream machine.

It's Alpine White with Black Dakota leather.

Here are the options:
M-Sport package.
Premium package.
Technology package.
Steptronic.
Rear View Camera.
Multi-Contour Seats.
Heated Front seats.
Park Distance Control.

I have to say, coming from a 750Li, this car just dazzles you. The cornering, performance, and just the way it looks is amazing.
I do miss the room in the 750, but this car more than makes up for it with so much more modern technology and convinience. All I have to say is wow!

Sweet choice in color! ...what is going to be your first mod?

nirvana19 12-29-2012 09:23 PM

I was in that delivery center picking up my 2013 535i just a little over a week ago myself...congrats!

Popoemt 12-29-2012 10:17 PM

Beautiful! Love those rims, is that piano black on the interior? V/r, Tim

P.S.- I know you came from a 750Li, quick question, any kids, and if so, hows that backseat? I sat in a 550 a few weeks ago and it looked like those rear seats were almost against the back of the front seats?

TGray5 12-29-2012 11:26 PM

very Nice...just picked up a twin to yours today. By the way, looks like you still have the protective factory tape on your ///M dead pedal.

Very nice.

Please let us know what you think of the M sport suspension. Not many folks in this forum have driven one.

Golfster 12-30-2012 07:46 AM

Very nice looking car. Congrats!

No, if you look on the MSRP sticker, it is anthracite wood trim.

A little confused on that as well... There are tons of us with it..
I can say that it doesn't hold a candle to my old e60 535i sport.

I'm gonna enjoy my car stock for a while. Minor mod was my little round convex blind spot mirror though. :)

It's Anthracite and just beautiful.
My 750 was Li so it was a living room on wheels, but my daughter loved the back seat comfort of the new car. My wife and I tried it and loved it as well.

Yeh that new feeling... I probably won't take the factory tape off for a while :)

Thanks, the M- Sport is a MUST have! I don't think I would've gone with anything less.

I know the feeling, my 2006 330i was delayed a bit on its way from Munich and I was just not myself till it arrived!

2013 is the first time that the MSport has a dedicated sport suspension without any electronics. And many people with 2013 MSport have DHP or DDC, so not many have this new (to the US) all steel sport suspension.

Is this a good thing or bad thing?

Mods
 
@DallasBimmer - Congratulations on your car! Great color! Two minor mods I would recommend. I would install the black grills, and the black mud flaps. It definitely gives it a more aggressive look. (I did that plus I tinted my windows.) I have been very happy with mine. It's a great car and looks incredible when clean! :drive:
Note: I am looking at two more mods. The BMW website just started having some M add-ons for our cars. I really like the M Performance Exhaust and I thinking hard about the M Performance Rocker Panel decals. (I'm debating on the decals...like the look but don't want to look like an old street racer.) :loco:

Have no idea. Depends on what you are looking for. Personally, I have not driven this setup so I can't comment.

I have to agree with you there, its a different animal all together.

I don't know that anyone will be able to answer this question. Everyone will either have one set up or the other. For me, the DDC only added "softer" set ups so it was not a big deal to me since "softer" is the reason I got rid of my last car. But's that's just me, and since it is unlikely anyone will own both setups, everyone's comments will be opinions on their particular setup without any comparison.

looks great, congrats!
