The adjustsble side bolsters in the e60 were much better IMHO than those in the GT (which is really a 7-series), the 7-series or the F30. The current 7, GT and F30 have pneumatic side bolsters while...

I considered both, but one drive of the 550i and I was hooked... but then I'm a track junkie. I can honestly say that had I not driven the 550i I would have been quite happy with the 535i.

My advice is ... Don't drive the 550i with sport pkg or you will want it. The power is amazing and the handing (for a car this size) is outstanding.

Per the folks at a reputable BMW tuner, if you want a sport-oriented F10 get the ARS and the DDC, but skip the IAS.

If you want improved handling (beyond stock) and are willing to sacrafice the...
