My seat time with DHP+sport is limited, while it filters out the undulation it also injects an artificial feel to the ride. Maybe the brain will adapt after 10k+ miles with the new tech(similar to...

The MY14 and MY15 no-line loaners did feel more composed than my MY13 no-line. There are many different suspension part# changes from MY12 to now so it is hard to judge what exactly got changed. A...

The 17-inch rims are the lightest among the F30 OEM ones, so they do have some merits. A set of M3/M4 rims should look pretty good on any F3*. If ala-carte is available, then 704+M-sport steering...

Most festers seem to think 10+ years is a long time, although for me 2+ years flew by with my F30, and it felt just like yesterday when the car was picked up. My previous E39 was my DD for 12 years....

The market conditions take care of this, namely, if there is plenty of units on the lots while the shipping trucks keep coming, the dealers will respond accordingly.

The foreman's diagnosis looks reasonable. If the wheels(tires and/or rims) are defective then it will feel like riding on square blocks, and that matches with the observed constant bouncing.

DIY is cool, hopefully in upcoming generations the bumpers, doors panels, and quad panels can be DIY R&R too with OEM color matched thermoplastic parts. :)

Buyout at lease end can be an option, esp. now that rates may start rising, and lease deals in the next few years may become less favorable than now.

BMW dealers are quite aggressive with pricing this month, it is hard to imagine anyone with credit worthiness(or cash) will take this deal.

320i and 335i(assuming base models) are quite different in terms of handling and smoothness. The extra 250+lb of 335i is noticeable compared to 320i, while the extra 120+HP and 100+lb-ft can hardly...

This deal seems to be off the book with BMWFS(which is doubtful to skip credit check), and is likely to be through dealer's(which can be non-BMW too) own financing arrangement.

This is a possibility, although it will be a new development(not the same 0.5L per cylinder strategy). It is interesting to know if a 2.0L I6 will sound the same as a 3.0L one.

Does wooden shift knob come with E39 without wood trims?

My recollection is that US-spec E39 530i 5MT with premium package comes with leather+wood shift knob, how about 5MT without premium, is the shift knob just leather?

Do you mean the 704 suspension that comes standard with OP's M-sport order? Most festers seem to believe that the standard(non-sport) suspension is too soft.
