My 2014 F10 is pretty solid and quiet and I have the 704 suspension. The only occasional rattle is the pax shoulder harness latch when the buckle hits the B pillar.

I love this body style, but it's true that the price absolutely sucks. When I was in the market at the end of 2013, the price delta for the 535d wasn't all that great.

If only they'd offer a...

Perhaps BMW didn't give them much time with the cars. Soon enough, they'll be out and we'll get more information.

With the F10 LCI, BMW made lots of claims concerning improvements to the steering...

I heard elsewhere that vehicle drive mapping makes for funky throttle response. What's been your experience?

I'm curious how the car drives with a MT. I had them on my E39 and E60, though I'd think they were quite as enjoyable on various 3 Series cars I'd had in the past.

When my car is parked in a garage overnight, and it's 50F outside, it will blow artificially cold air unless I turn off the a/c or compensating with the dash-level dial.

Moreover, if the a/c was...

If this is true, I'd like to know why the a/c systems blows ice cold air when the outside temp is 50F.

I'm in LA -- not quite as warm, but I always control the fan speed manually. The fully auto setting never quite gets it there, though I didn't test your specific example.

And when humidity is very low?

Your broker's basically saying that the navigation system depreciates more slowly than the rest of the car. That does not make sense.

Are you saying the compressor detects the ambient temperature and spend more time "on" on hot days? If so, then why does the compressor blow cold air on cold, dry days?

Basically I think you're saying that the A/C compressor itself does not adjust for temperature.

My 535d is a dog around town - not for lack of power, but a lack of responsiveness in 2nd gear. Not sure if it's turbo lag or the transmission, but it's a bit annoying.

In the East Coast perhaps, but in drier parts of the country, the AC won't shut off. So I'd say it semi-automatic.
