I have also noticed that the heat on the steering wheel of my '14 535d is not as strong as it was on my '11 535i. It took much longer to warm up, then didn't get as warm.

In coasting, the RPMs drop to between 600 and 800 on my 535d. Once you step on the brake, however, the transmission re-engages, and RPMs jump to about 1250 or so.

2015 x3 2.8i vs 2.8d..worth it?

I'm about to replace my wife's 2010 Lexus Rx450h with either the 2015 version or a 2015 X3. I'm considering the 2.8i or d versions, as she really doesn't need the 3.5.
