My 535 GT (F07) is MY 2011 and it has the RBS. It dis not...

One wonders if any demand for these types of vehicles, regardless of make, will lessen with the drop in the cost of gasoline. My feeling is that SUV sales may stand to benefit.

I am not surprised in the least at your post though I detect that maybe there was a possibility that you would finally have a GT of your own. True or were you making a general statement?

Maybe I should have stated "happier" as your version of "e-nirvana" will still be a bit distant even after the BMW/VW effort for the practical reasons that you cited.

I am also wondering if the...

That sounds most plausible but it seems most of the 550-ers on this forum have, or prefer, them for various reasons. Understandably, most sold here in Canada are x-drive thanks to Old Man Winter.
