I asked about Sunday dropoff and was quoted EUR200 earlier this year (2014).

And then I realized that was so stupid as EUR200 got me a very decent hotel room on Sunday night, and I dropped the car...

That's annoying.

I haven't experienced the same, although I suspect I'm running the most recent software (Mar 2014 build).

I have noticed, however, the camera on my 2014 has a lot more...

I hear lots of different "creaks" and "taps" in my 2014 F10 while driving, and quite frankly, it's utterly annoying and is making me hate this car at <2k miles.

My 2011 F10 was much quieter. I...

Both the A6 and 5-series have their respective strong and weak points.

I would say, however, that both are excellent cars and you cannot go wrong with either. In fact, I wonder if there's a...

Are these new or used?

If new, drive them both but ultimately get the car you want (even if that means a 535 w/ M-Sport).

If used, obviously the drive will be critical (pay attention to bent...

I've done this three times.

I absolutely cross shopped the X5.

As others have said, the deal on the 5 is going to be better than the X5.

But for me, the true deal breaker, is the new X5 design. I have still not warmed up...

I got it for the active blind spot and cameras.

The lane departure vibration is flat out annoying, as is the red light that tells me I'm going to crash.

ACC Stop/Go is pretty cool, although...

For the exterior look and thick steering wheel and M door sill panels, it's totally worth it.

It looks like it docked at BMW, then went over to the other auto terminal, then went back to BMW?

Maybe it's picking up a bunch of South Carolina-made SUVs and needed to make room before taking...

I hate to pee on your corn flakes, but you should expect at least a week from the ship docking in NYC to arrival at your dealer. I'd say 7-10 days is the average.

Don't plan on anything, and that...

You'd rather the ship spend a few extra days in port/diverting around weather than having to wait for a new car to be manufactured. ;)

Yes, definitely look at it in person.

I think BMW's silvers are utterly boring. For whatever reason, Audi's silver looks much sexier.

The only way to judge is an in-person viewing.
