BMW is just cashing in on the "M". IMHO. an M only belongs on a true M car. The designation of "M235I" is a perfect example. Our "M-Sport" option should just be a "Sport" option. I am not...

I just logged on to their web site to purchase a bottle. $12.00 for the bottle and $11.00 for shipping to California. That is crazy for shipping.

Agreed. It is not like going from the E60 to the F10. Most non-BMW folk will not notice the difference.

Man, I can't see how that happened. The Torx I used fit in perfect and the resistance is so low that I can't see how you could round it out. But then, there is always one!! :rofl:

Great point. There are some past threads stating the same. I for one would not own the F10 without the Luxury Seat Package. Other consider it a waste of money. Options! :thumbup:

I agree with ezaircon4jc... it has plenty of power for the car but will not be blowing the doors off of a competitor. IMHO, of the four power plants offered for the F10, it is the best.
