340 5 months into lease get out??

What do you wish you'd gotten instead? Audi and Mercedes are no better in terms of feel. People tend to choose them over bmws for their interiors. The Cadillac ATS and jaguar XE supposedly deliver a...

Why does BMW sell a 320?

In true Bf fashion a discussion about the 320 involves mentions of rolls royces and rolexes. Don't forget about the trophy wife. Where's BJ when you need him?!

Yeah I thought that was a strange omission from the LCI f30. They updated the 2 series front crash structure to handle small overlap.

I'd think that for around 2k you might be able to have a better suspension installed (shocks, springs, sways). That might be the cheapest option and give you the sportiest ride.

340i: Detoured to 535i

Yep - an e38 740i is very close in size and weight to an f10 535i. They even share a similar design aesthetic - conservatively elegant. My dad actually had a 740 from 2001 to 2013. He replaced it...

Interesting. I actually "de coded" 2tb on my f10 because the shifts were too jerky in sport mode (fast but overkill). The transmission shifts much smoother now. So in my experience there is more to...

Yeah - hard to know if they'll still have lease support for leftover f10s by that point. I imagine the g30 will still be pricey to lease since it will only have been out for 6-8 months.

Mineral Gray/Golden Brown ZCP MT European Delivery

Beautiful - exactly how I'd want mine.

Golden brown is somewhat similar to the e39 caramel interior, no?

What do you think of the Chevy SS (it's being hailed as the second coming of the e39 m5)

No build out cash- just extremely high residual (67%). Typically they've been in the 63% range so that extra 4% on a 60k car would be worth $2400. One advantage of the higher residual vs cash...

'14 320i BMS Stage 1 Acceleration Runs Vid

Yeah I agree - you should go with a 535 if you decide to get an f10. It will feel bigger. I adjusted after a few weeks and now I don't notice it. Parking is easy with the cameras. The interior does...

'14 320i BMS Stage 1 Acceleration Runs Vid

Yes it's strange. I guess one justification is that you get a "free" upgrade to Nappa from sensatec on the 528 (the 535 comes standard with Dakota). But then that means the 535 msport is overpriced....

'14 320i BMS Stage 1 Acceleration Runs Vid

You can't get the msport suspension in a 528 unless you special order it (which I did). I agree that the base suspension is too soft. The n20 moves the car quite well 0-60 in 6.1). Felt much more...

'14 320i BMS Stage 1 Acceleration Runs Vid

Yeah I was also hesitant to get an f10 back in 2014. At the time, a 328 was going to be more expensive than a 528 so I decided to give it a shot. Been very happy and not sure I want to return to a 3...
