Starting off in 2nd gear?

Yeah it shifts quickly and smoothly out of 1st but most of the time I don't need "full power". Even the 528 has plenty of torque when starting in 2nd. Great when I'm merging on a short entrance ramp...

Starting off in 2nd gear?

So one small annoyance I have with my 2014 528 is that it always starts in 1st regardless of driving or transmission mode. Just makes for somewhat jerky starts and lots of extra shifts. Yes, I can...

Yes, sophisto is not familiar with the particulars of US spec cars. Though I suppose one could special order 704 on a base car with a little persistence.

I'm not sure, but I bet one of the guys from bimmertech might be able to figure it out remotely since they sell NBT retrofit kits all over the world.

Wow - nice dealer. I guess it's ultimately at the dealers discretion. BMW gets paid before you pick it up so the dealer is floating you the money in that case.

Actually, my dealer didn't get paid...

Ordering new 535i: need help on chosing suspension

Ordering new 535i: need help on chosing suspension

You can't get 17" wheels from the factory - you'll have to buy them yourself or buy a 528 instead.

Stick with the regular suspension (avoid msport) and add the dynamic handling package will give...

Generating Routes in Google Maps for uploading into your BMW Nav System

Cool- yeah that's pretty much my experience with NBT. Although I don't even see the second trip- just get routed to the first waypoint and it
ends. Tried using 20 waypoints and same result
