Car & Driver review of 530d

Here is the Euro-spec full-digital panel (to rub salt in our USA wound...). It looks a ton classier from an angle.

Atlanta: Dude drives 535i into a lake

What a waste of an F10. Stupid is as stupid does:

I'll spend $875 on the HK and then $3500 on a really nice TV and home system.

Including couch.

Apologies if others disagree (or I offend anyone), but I think this looks cheap - like a entry-level (not even premium) 3-series.

Wow.

Also they switch between technologies - a light by my house is timed in the morning/afternoon (heavy traffic in between two schools with stopped vehicles), and under-road sensors other times.

For me, A6 is a no-go. Leasing an Audi is terrible. A dealer in Atlanta literally did everything they could and it was still like $29k over 3 years for a lease - for the 2.0T (!!!).

And lease rates would be great with fewer options since the most reasonable depreciation is factored on the base car. Options have terrible residual (see: Porsche).

This actually looks like a great deal if it translates to the USA (@ USD72,100). But then again, I doubt it.

Nicki is hot but that "Genius" is a knob. What a tool.

(my local Genius is no better - he's great at reading and reciting facts, not so much at neural analysis or debugging)

Two questions:

1. Will any dealers actually carry B&W audio for sampling? Or do I have to sit in a 7-series?
2. Any reason why BMW switched from B&O to B&W?

What's interesting is that the interior is the same exact as the 540i. The black 540i interior (Dakota) was pretty terrible - 3-series like.

The 530i had ceramic controls. I missed out on it on my...

2. The fineline wood has generally received terrible...
