True. I find no 5 series that lists the "Adaptive M suspension" in the DHP description. Clearly DHP is a different suspension package on the F10 than it is on the F3X. Maybe another reason why...

Similar experience, only not limited to the latest iOS. The BMW integration, when hard-wire connected, seems to want to play music from the iPhone's onboard library (the iPod part). It won't let...

BMW's Jet Black paint is the black among blacks - it looks fantastic when cleaned, polished, and waxed, but by the time you get home from the car wash it needs attention again. It seems to be very...

It's only possible to combine 704 and DHP on a 6 series. All other cars, it's one or the other. Sadly.

At this point I've read reports pointing both directions. They all say that there will still be 550/650 or an equivalent; the question is whether that car has a V8 or a more extensively tuned I6. ...

I think the springs are the same too; only the shocks are different and have adjustable damping. Someone who knows where to look could verify on RealOEM, probably.

You nailed it.

BMW dialed so much of the "sport" out of the F10 that it almost seems like they were trying. An X5 is more fun.

There are F10 apologists out here, and you'll be hearing from...

I don't even think it's that complicated. In my view, if you can find a good deal on a CPO car and you have a chance of paying off the loan in the first 2 or 3 years, you can get to the point where...

Yep, the key is holding them a long time. If you can hold a CPO car past 6 or 7 years, or a new one past 10 years, you start seeing enormous financial advantages. It's a reeeaaallllly long time...

Right, that makes sense. But the Elite CPO warranty is a year shorter, not longer. That's what's weird.

It's funny, I went a little crazy with my E60 - exhaust, audio overhaul, and a bunch of little things - but I am not at all driven to modify my F10. No desire.

It might be that it's a lease and I...

Clearly a cost reduction play by BMW:

"People will pay more for CPO cars with extremely low mileage. They will even accept an inferior warranty because the car is so close to new."

Evil empire.

There are still a lot of dealers out there who assume they have all the information and the buyer is in the dark, like in 1953. And they act accordingly. I guess the key is to figure out quickly if...

$320 per month on a 6 year note with 2.9% interest is about $21124 in loan amount. You either got a screaming good deal on your 528 or you put some money down. Nothing at all wrong with either one,...

Throttle tip-in has been an issue with BMWs all the way back to the early 2000s. My E53 X5 had it pretty bad. My 2005 545 had such wonderful torque that I couldn't really tell.

+1. I can't believe how much this issue stresses people out. When it gets dirty, you clean it, just like anything else.

It was $3500 on my 2013 535 also.

It's kind of critical on an xDrive car since those can't be had with the 704 M suspension. The standard F10 suspension is very softly sprung. DHP goes a...

I just wipe mine off now and then. The jeans residue comes right off with some leather cleaner like Lexol.
