I agree, and I think Infiniti in particular is only a step or so away from being really compelling. I'd love to see what they come up with for the M-series successor given the lessons they learned...

I think you aren't wrong about any of that. I, for one, however, would never have entered an Audi dealership before I got this F10. I would have been content to buy one BMW after another, probably...

It seems like the important questions here are:

- can you find a dealer who still has a build allocation for a 2015 this late in the model year, and
- will a dealer be any more willing to...

Someone posted this long-term 328 review on the other forum. I'm cross-posting it here because it beautifully describes what I call the "front to back see-saw" motion in the F10. This writer calls...

Mine just feels like it has less boost in sport mode; I can't discern any other difference. Sport mode is fine going down the highway, but I do find myself switching to comfort in parking lots just...

I will contribute to the swerve off-topic.

Wow, I had to look that up. Indeed, there are no Paneras in Utah. We trip over them accidentally in Colorado and California.

Yeah, they may have moved it too close to the 7 series. I have to look long and hard at a 7 series to tell it from a 5, and I own a 5! Definitely not sure I see $20,000 more car there.

Far be it from me to convince anyone not to like their F10, when they do. I think it is an excellent car, but an entirely different car than the ones it succeeded.

I also had a Boxster S for a while, when I had my E53 X5. Great combination and it did make me feel like a rock star to have both of those in my garage.

That might be taking it a little too far - but clearly BMW set the F10 standard according to what Mercedes had been doing with the E Class, and I've heard it said more than once that the F10 5 series...

Yes, I definitely remember you from the E60 forum. Was your 535 blue?

EDIT: Yes, I see it in your signature - I promise I actually remembered though. ;)

Alan, what do you think about the power in the N55+MPPK in your X5 versus the same engine without MPPK in your first F10, weighing maybe 500-600 pounds less?

My 535 is plenty fast enough to void...

Maybe indeed. The funny thing is that they are having all the same conversations over on the F30 forum, where they compare it unfavorably to the E90.

Factually, I agree with all of that - even that the E60 was a bit of an ugly duckling. For me, though, all of the points you listed - the E60 being smaller, stiffer ride (I'd say more controlled,...

Kind of, but in the 70s they took away our 140 hp V8s and gave us 80 hp fours. Now they're taking away our 400hp V8s and giving us 420hp sixes with broader torque curves and better mileage.
