Cadillac CTS-V

Interesting. What do you mean by the "seats oxidize"? The frames rust (as in the 3 series?) I checked out a C the other day and the only quality issues I noticed were the interior door handle felt...

Drove a GS350 today

Well at least with the 528 they don't force 19s on us. A very nice looking set of 18s is included with Msport. Given that even the turbo 4 feels better to me than their v6, I'd say it's still bmw 1,...

That is indeed excellent. You'd have to do msds and ED on a 528 Msport to come close. There'd be no chance with a 535 Msport. Still wouldn't get one though. Too many deal breakers regardless of cost

Interesting. For me it's more than just the weird front end though . The proportions just don't look right for a rwd sedan. It somehow manages to look more like a fwd car if that makes sense. It...

To me those options don't make or break the f10 interior. But I think it is perfectly "fair" to compare the base f10 interior to the base cts interior. Personally I still prefer the look of the f10...

Hi-

I have a 2014 528 (US) that I had coded using esys 3.23.4 with psdzdata lite 52.3. My car just got back from service and has been updated (entire car) to integration level F010-15-03-502.

Atleast on the F10, I think you are referring to how the dash sort of cuts away below the climate controls. To me this actually makes the design feel less heavy. The CTS design actually looks more...

Cadillac CTS-V

Maybe I'm strange but I actually admire the e28 and e34 interiors from the 80s and 90s. Simple, functional yet angled toward the driver and high quality. The f10 dash reminds me a little of the e34...

Looks good- but you forgot about the $725 BMWFS acquisition fee.

CCA rebate is $1k on the 5 series, but you do have to have been a member for year prior to the purchase.

Nice detail change on the 15 F10

I think it varies in smoothness from handle to handle. I just happen to have gotten a driver side handle where it's quite noticeable so now I'm keyed into it. The rear door is less notiveable on my...

Curious - did your car have Msport as well? Even in the configurator it removes alcantara if you spec Msport. Very odd if that's true though.

Also, did you get a 535 or 550 (I realize your handle...
