My 550i too big too. I like the comfort but miss the styling and handling of my old E39. I hope the new M3 is just right.

Mine is well maintained also. Do you end up driving the old 540 also or does it just sit?

Who has switched from E39 to F10?

I am close to pulling the trigger on a 2013 550i. Now I wonder if my '02 540i is too good to leave behind and whether the 550i is a step up or a comedown.

Former E39 owner experiences welcome...

How about seats?

I love the comfort seats on my 2002 540i. Are the 2013 335i seats as good?

Thanks. Good report, much welcome. Have you run into that throttle tip in issue? Slow start from stop, then jump fast, too fast.

Thanks.

Do you have the dreaded throttle tip in issue--lagging acceleration from standing start, then jumps forward too fast?

In CA at least, you can't lose deposit. They are required to refund it if you change mind.
