Still not agreeing with the "annoying sport throttle". I wonder if the 528i mapping is different. I love a responsive throttle. It reminds me more of my 335i 6MT, and I rarely use manual shifting...

A "softer" look, but not my favorite. You're driving yourself crazy now! If you're going lighter, check Cashmere Individual, more like previous Oyster I think -- not as bright/light as Ivory White....

Leather is standard on all 535i's and variations. You didn't get leather via Premium package.

EDIT: Your sig indicates a 535ix, so I assume you do have a 535. The Premium package on the 528i is...

Actually, Premium includes Sirius, and that's what I wanted. Yes, they forced me to do it. I know, I could have it done privately, but decided not to go that route. I had CA on my 335i, not on my...

Remember the joke: What is the difference between a BMW owner and a porcupine? For a porcupine, the "prick" is on the outside.

That's old school. Your BMW uses 8.5 quarts of synthetic oil -- it lasts a long time. When the previous service interval ('08 and '11) was 17K miles, I always did an interim oil change.

You are exactly right! I had an '11 previously, standard Cinnamon/Black Dakota, and when I first saw a '14 at my dealer's, it had Venetian Beige. Since the carpets are beige as well in that...

Plus, the wood inlay wheel is $800. They're not going to throw that in for free. I think my car order also showed that back in December.

They more "slide" forward and back. I think the multi-contour headrests might be similar in this respect. You push a button on the side of the headrest to release it to move backwards. You can...

Amaro is available in 2015, Individual interior, as it always has been. Plus, Mocha would add some warmth over total black.
