5-series minor annoyances -- BMW survey response

Yep- on the whole bmws are very thoughtfully designed, which probably makes some of these little niggles more noticeable. But when I look at cars from other brands I often see much larger issues that...

Yes the ford /Volvo system works well. As does Mercedes (surprising sinc I'd assume they use the same supplier as bmw). Agree on the side mirrors - they are too small. That should also go on the...

To be honest, I was also unimpressed with BMW's blind spot system when I tried it in my dad's F10. That experience led me to skip the option on my car. The light is harder to see and poorly position...

5-series minor annoyances -- BMW survey response

Was talking about the exterior door handles. There's a seam on the inner part that I feel everytime i open a door. Feels cheap and unfinished.

I like strong acceleration too - but it's irrelevant...

So would you try to get out of your 5 lease early using lease trader or something?

Yeah- the B pillar should be designed such that the passenger seatbelt doesn't rattle and bang against it when not in use.

2014 550xi -- Hard Shifting

I guess I don't really understand the current fascination with ultra fast shift times in a road car. As long as there's no noticeable delay who cares about an extra 100 ms or so. I'd rather have the...

Hmm..maybe there is a noticeable difference in the way the sport and regular trans shifts even in regular D and comfort mode. Does your 550 have sport auto? If so maybe that's the reason for the...

2014 550xi -- Hard Shifting

Interesting perspective. I have a 14 528 while my dad has a 13 550xi so I've had the opportunity to compare as well. I actually find the 528 to be more fun because it feels lighter on its feet - I...

Unfortunately, it can no longer be enabled via coding on the 14s. You can get the config screen to show up, but it won't actually allow you to select either of the options. Maybe it would work if...

What year and drivetrain (awd or rwd)?

If AWD, you'll have the same suspension (unless one car is equipped with DHP and the other is not). If its 2013+ RWD, then the msport will have the sport...

Please school me on lease negotiation.

Looks in the ballpark of possibility. If your 57k selling price doesn't include the credits then it might be a tad low. If it includes the credits then it's about 2500 too high. The invoice on a 62k...

I doubt that- the EPA test is very specific and generally doesn't allow for changing any settings from default.

And the crazy thing is that you can likely lease a 90k 6 series for around what a 60k Audi would be.
