528xi - 2012 vs 2015

Congrats! Those LEDs really do look great. And I never tire of "checking out" my f10 either. Such great looking cars.

Agree with all of your thoughts and reasoning on getting the n20 too. And...

I remember, briefly, during the e46 run they allowed you to spec lumbar as a standalone "priority 1" option for 500. I think that lasted 1 year. Lol.

I agree. At first I regretted not getting Hk but have realized the stock system is fine. Was going to do the bavsound upgrade but as time passes I find myself less motivated to bother

Yeah that is a bit surprising considering how tit for tat the Germans are in terms of competing with each other.

2015 Mustang

What about the Audi s3? Much nicer interior and you can get it loaded including nappa leather for about 50k.. The new c63 sounds amazing so that might be an even better choice given your needs,...

That's what they did for the f10 lci so it's quite possible will follow the same path.

Sometimes I look at one and think it looks good and other times awkward. I think it really depends on the wheels, color, suspension, etc. the s3s I've seen all look very nice.

A steep slippery driveway is exactly the scenario where awd helps the most. Curvy back roads and braking are all about the tires - hope you got snows!

INteresting. That makes sense considering they have to leave some room for the "plumbing" for the ventialted seats which probably means less foam.

Was reacting to the overall shape and design which the picture shows quite clearly. I agree that they rarely err so I guess we shall see if they make up for it with some nice details.

First Mediterranean Blue Metallic Sighting? (picture)

They've been doing it that way for as long as they've offered awd (even going back to the e30 with awd) so doubtful they'll change anytime soon.

It makes sense that the 2 brands take different...

Yeah that interior isn't very attractive. Looks like an updated version of the last gen passat with some e90 mixed in. Maybe bmw will finally surpass audi in interiors when the f30 replacement debuts.

New Audi A4 coming with a focused on stealing the 3 Series driving dynamics

I rented a 2014 a4 quattro a few months ago and largely agree. But one thing that surprised me is how lethargic it felt on the highway. Same 8 speed as in our bmws, but it seems much more reluctant...

Wow-- that's insane.

A cheaper "upgrade" for the now standard xenon clusters might be to "downgrade" to the pre-LCI xenon units if they fit. They look nicer with their LED turn signal clusters...

They certainly look nicer than the standard units, but 1900 buys a lot of more tempting options.

328i lease up - what next?

Hmm- the curb weights I found were 3480 for the 328 and 3812 for the 528. So around 330 pounds. Add on the sunroof that's stanfard on the 5 and it probably shrinks to the 200s.
