Was that the case in 2011? My Sport 2012 has DHP and ARS. Were they separate options then? If separate, then I stand corrected. Both of his choices will have multi-contour seats - the non-Sport also...

Ry"C,

Good comments, but you didn't say which audio system you have.

FWIW, I consider myself somewhat an audiophile (or audio snob). I can hear the differences between Chinese and American 300B...

I was in a similar situation last summer & nearly bought a non-sport 535Xi. I had put a deposit down, & the night before I flew from Las Vegas to Denver to see it, I pulled the codes & realized it...

I tried twice recently to deal with a local dealer here in Atlanta. At first I was looking for a 2010 E61 (535iT), and they kept trying to put me into an X5. I gave up on finding a low-mileage E61...

I just wish there was a 50hz adjustment. Anyone know if it's possible to recode the HK system for this? I'd like to have a 2db cut at 100hz and 2db boost at 50hz.

Actually you need to use a real Apple white cable, 30-pin to Lightning. Most of the off-brand 30-pin to Lightning adapters work only for charging, not for data. A ripoff at $ 39, but the only choice....

It's an E60. That body style was sold in the US from 2006-2010 as the E60 sedan and E61 wagon (Touring) 5-Series.

The current F07 was introduced in 2010 as the 535/550 GT. The corresponding...

That's pretty much it. I commute to Nashville ~20 times a year. The 2-3 times it's icy or snowing, especially around Monteagle on I-24, make it worth it. We also go to the NC mountains occasionally....

Premium Audio-How to tell if a 535 has it?

I had previously asked this question on the F07 Forum when I was considering a GT for towing. It was suggested I ask in the F10 forum. I've since decided to keep our Touareg for towing.

I was considering 2009-10 E-61's, but I've pretty much decided against an xiT in favor of a GT.Though I prefer the looks of the wagon, the GT is more advanced and will take a 5k# hitch.
