Official Bimmerfest F10 5 Series Carbon Black Metallic Photo Thread

Just in case anyone is considering the same..I finally got around to changing the grey below the rear bumper to carbon black. I like the grey on other colors but not on the carbon black.
Here is a...

Yes, I have this on my f150 and its basically useless and annoying. It times out in 10 or 15 minutes. It not enough time to cool or heat the truck in most cases. Then when you unlock the car or open...

Anyone consider used M5 before picking up 535/550?

If you are considering a used M series, you shouldn't be buying an M, especially as a daily driver. Upkeep is horrendous and not for people on a budget. This is a car you lease and release. My friend...

528i m sport with no sport + mode???

Do you have the DTC "off" button above the sport button? If so, put the car in sport, then turn off the DTC and... walla...your in sport +.
Sport+ just saves you from pressing the DTC off button...

528i m sport with no sport + mode???

I believe xdrive default is 40% front : 60% rear based on my readings (ie when cruising or when stopped). Based on your description xdrive only governs torque from front to rear based on movement and...

528i m sport with no sport + mode???

I wonder what the xdrive does with DTC off. Is it continually in the 60:40 torque ratio or is sport+ redundant for xdrives?

Do you have the buttons for sport, comfort, comfort+, Eco on your center console? If so, you need to press in the sport direction until you get to sport +.

Anyone go 535i and wish they had gone 550? What about the opposite?

I knew what I was getting into with multiple test drives. F10 isn't high performance in any of the models for me. It's high quality, high luxury, with excellent performance for a family sedan (if you...

BMW 2012 528X Drive

There probably about the same performance. The 528 has more hp but is 500+ lbs heavier then the 530. I have a 2013 535, however, test drove a 2012 528 and did not feel it was slow or lacking by any...

Vehicle battery needs to be replaced on a 10 months old car????

This is concerning. Luckily they took care of it. Personally, I don't think this is BMW policy but a lame attempt from the dealer to double dip. I've heard stories like this before with Benz's too....

Which Alloys? Streamline or V-Spoke

From the pics I'm not feeling it: 2w1 all the way IMO.

Oct 2012 build date

Any MY2013 and late MY2012 should be fine. I think 3/12 to 4/12 builds forward are all good from what I recollect.

I was pleased to see a company finally pay homage to Nikola. The man was absolutely brilliant however somewhat forgotten next to Einstein, Edison, and others. Once these vehicles can be wirelessly...

Adaptive LED or Xenons?

I'm glad I don't need to make this decision :)
Being one of the fundamental LCI improvements and front end enhancements, I'd be hard pressed not to order it, but it is pricey!!

2014 visualizer up at bmw.com

Agreed. Its kind of clashing designs (bulky contemporary interior with a lean-retro steering wheel) but I do like how it opens up the visibility of the dash and side stalks. I wonder if you can...

BMW F10 5 Series LCI - New style and engine options

Oh no, I'm serious in my area at least. The dealers are typically stocked with about a dozen to a couple dozen 1 series, 3 series, X3s, maybe half a dozen X5s and 5 series, maybe one or two 6 and 7...

Why I hate BMW's stupid push-button-park setup

Your right!!! It's happened to me twice, and nearly got rear ended the second time. Is this just an issue with the SAT shifter or does the gumby one do this too? Just holding the SAT as you normally...

528i XDrive vs 535i XDrive
