BINGO! That's the first of many symptoms that we E60 lovers point to about how "dead" the F10's steering feel is, and a perfect example of how the E60 gives so much more - and better - feedback to...

Well, yeah. The F10 5er is an Executive Saloon/Sports Car (esp the 535i), while the 335i is an entry-level luxury sports car. BMW is marketing to two completely different clients with these cars.

I hear ya. 86,000 miles on my E60, and still nary a single problem. Best car I've ever owned.

Jeez, this is an easy one...

Go with the E60.

F10s, while beautiful, are Buh-OR-ING to drive. I mean, full-on fun-sapping, luxo-barge, overly refined, well-engineered sport sedan wannabes.

Alas, I don't have the 6sp. It's my only regret with this car. Not that the Sport AT isn't amazing, (it is), but I miss shifting.

Gorgeous car. I've got my eye on the M4 as a replacement for my E60 550i in a year or two. I think it may be time to get down to a dealership and do a test drive.
