If the rotors are within spec whe pads are replaced, why should they be replaced? Not sure that is "cheapness". Sounds more like "logic".

Fine. But the OP is trying to state that the 2016 F10 528i interior is somehow inferior in material quality to his pre-LCI 2013 535i. We're not counting the apparent leatherette seats in his loaner...

I have owned 4 BMW's since 2005, and none have ever required an alignment. The dealer has never even tried to push this. Are you sure it needed aligning? Was there abnormal tire wear? Unless you...

As someone else replied, the materials in the F10 between pre- and post-LCI are almost identical, other than some small details. I had a 2011 535i and now have a 2014 535i. To say (other than the...

I bought a 1st model year F10 and had no issues. I'm on my 2nd. I'm planning on an '18 G30. While the F10 is still a beautiful car, it will be "old" as soon as the G30 is out. I would wait. ...

The adjustments the OP seems to be describing is not really a "turn", but a very slight movement of the steering wheel off-center. Since there is about zero play in our F10 steering, I don't think...

No, not normal. Have it checked. The fan will of course change speeds, as the cabin reaches the target temperature. However, it should not be coming off and on at intervals.

I'm planning my F10 replacement in the fall of 2017 -- I hope the Individual colors are available by then. I think Individual was delayed the first year for the new 7.

Sell while you have a warranty, I assume it's transferable to the new owner, as a sales incentive. Actually, I never keep a car beyond its original factory warranty.

Yes, most of us have learned to leave the key inside the car while washing it, to avoid unintended locking/unlocking. That still wouldn't close the window, as reported. In any event, we now know...

In the U.S., there is no standard remote closing of "anything", including the windows. I do believe one can have their car coded to have the FOB and/or CA handles close the windows and sunroof. ...

No ridges on handle, no Comfort Access. There's nothing else to check. CA is not standard on 5 series, even 2016. Part of premium package now. In 2011, it was also a stand-alone option for $1000.

The light is on all the time when nobody is sitting in the seat. It is showing that the airbag is "off". You're talking about the light in the upper (roof) console area, right?

So that just means most dealers order their in-stock 535i's with HK. It isn't standard on a 535i. Go look at the order guide. Option code 688.
