Mineral Gray and Dark Graphite Metallic (my 535) are definitely on the same color chip. I personally wouldn't order that combination again, as I don't think there's enough contrast between the seats...

It's about as light as it could be and still be credibly called a shade of tan. Maybe more like a "cream" or "off-white". You want to see it in person before you make the jump, I think.

The DSC defeat button is also right there, in easy reach. One button push.

Exactly.

I've got Oyster in my F10. It really isn't hard to keep clean. A leather wipe now and then does the job. Frankly, choosing black as an exterior color is a much larger commitment.

FWIW, the ventilated seats in the 5 series make an enormous racket. Almost untenable.

I completely agree. The interior choices on the M-Sport are annoying. Who wouldn't like a black with a little stitching highlight to make it look less like a coffin? And can we all agree that...

I think the RC350 is going to be a legitimate alternative to a 4 series. Performance probably right between the 428 and 435, priced a little below the 428. It might be smaller than people expect...

I had a great drive to the airport this morning. It's 40 miles, early morning, 80MPH the whole way. Exactly what the F10 is made for.

That is indeed the 442 wheel., which is the optional 19" wheel on the 435. Frankly, if the 400M were available as a 19" I would like it better.

I'm 99% sure they don't allow MSD and a single-pay lease together, but it's worth asking at your dealer.

I think you get a greater money factor reduction from MSDs. Though, MSDs tie up more...

I traded a 2005 E60 545 for a 2013 535, a year ago, and I still miss the 545 every day. It was a totally different kind of car. And, paid for! There was nothing at all wrong with it. I just ended...

At this point the A6 is highly competitive against the 535. It's faster and handles better. It's even a little cheaper, comparably equipped. People say that the driving...
