The F10 Wow factor those thinking about buying read

The thing I've realized about more power is that you quickly get used to it and then is no longer as fun. So more power alone is not enough for me all else being equal (as is the case on equally...

The strange thing is that I don't remember reading many complaints about the N55 (or N54) + 6MT combo in the e90/92 or e60 535. So I wonder if they introduced some odd throttle mapping with this...

I've had a 335 coupe in the past, and have driven my dad's 550 plenty of times. Still love my 528 because it feels more nimble than the 550, but more comofrtable, and higher quality than my 335. ...

Rear seat room 5 series vs 3 vs 4

That's the wheelbase not the overall length. But you can see that even the swb 7 has a longer wheelbase 120 vs 116 than the f10. The 120 number is for the L version of the 5 that's only sold in China

On my 14 528i, the front door trims creak (aluminum hex). Although I've noticed that the trim creaks in every F10 I've sat in when you push on it.

Guess I'm one of those people. The current gti interior and exterior are perfect in my opinion. Actually prefer it to the 2 series even though the 2 Is a better car and probably higher quality too.

Not sure about the sound, but the rocking and rough starts could also be a sign of an impending high pressure fuel pump (HPFP) failure. Although rare on the N55 engine, it does happen. For example,...

Maserati Ghibli - A replacement for your 5 Series?

Harsh but hilarious and very true. They really do seem to think a nice sounding exhaust and a badge is worth 30k more
