Also, the F06 has some stronger steel in areas (the roof I know) so structural rigidity is slightly higher than on the already super solid F10. Mechanically I'd hope to think it's overall a bit...

Yeah, the steering of the F06 was absolutely sublime, pure classic BMW feel. I really plan on an F06 next. The more I look into it, the more I realize that it's practically my dream car, everything...

The only thing to me hurting the F10 interior to me is the F10 itself. I.e it's become familiar enough to me that I start to want something fresh to my senses. Problem is, I can't find anything that...

I dunno, even that picture looks pretty comparatively cheap to me. The A6 interior is just inherently lackluster, IMO. It doesn't feel as sturdy, the plastics around the console and various places...

Well put. The N55 really is a work of art, I can't think of one other motor that gives as good a combo of low-end torque/high rev power/MPG/smoothness/sound. Even in a car as heavy as the F10 it...

To me the S5 interior being technically a 2009 A4 interior with nicer surfaces here and there along with seats, doesn't compare to the F10 interior. I agree it appears/feels about two leagues under...

One of the "problems" with the M badge is that it actually looks cool/good. The three-striped rainbow is a nice backdrop against especially certain colored BMW's.

Even paying a couple thousand for buying your car out after lease, if you had an intent to buy it outright (or finance) it initially, can make sense. Because, A- your paying for the luxury of a 2-3...

It really is one of the most flawless looking cars out there, the F10.

I'd pick M Sport again if I got another F10 as well, but I will say that the LCI non-M Sport design might be technically even...
