Wow. I'd say it comes down to what the service history is like and when things were replaced. For example, things like suspension (shocks, springs, bushings, contorl arms, etc), belts, water pump. ...

I see. Are you sure it was an xdrive? THe reason I ask is that the RWD models have rear wheel steering (IAS) as an option. That would potenitally explain why it turned sharper than the 528. If it...

Just double check that they will clear the brakes on a 550. I know they'll fit a 528 or 535, but hte 550 might have larger rotors. I can't remember

I waffled on this myself, but am happy I went with a better optioned 528 vs a stripped 535. The extra amenities are things I always enjoy and would've really regretted giving up in favor of the...

Hmm- it would be very unusual to notice oversteer on a stock BMW, much less an xdrive one. And even on a RWD model I doubt you'd notice any unless you disbaled DSC and floored it on some ice or took...

Sounds perfect! I waffled on this and ended up going with DG/mocha/alumnum. But if I did it again, I'd go with your exact combo. Congrats!

I happen to like aluminum trim on my cars instead of wood. But the aluminum hex on the F10 isn't one of BMW's better efforts. The pattern is a bit cheesy and it looks a bit fake. The aluminum hex in...

FA code a different model?

Have an f10 528 and one thing that really bugs me is that it always downshift to 1st in any mode. Makes for jerky stop and go driving. I know that 550s stay in 2nd. So I'm thinking of FA coding ICM...

All else being equal. But bmw has done a very good job of quelling in vibration with the 4 at least on the 5 series. at idle, I can feel a very faint purr through the wheel but otherwise can't tell...

The other fallacy I see is that people often equate no car payment with 0$ ownerhsip cost. Most cars still depreciate and they all need maintenance and repairs.

The dual injection system is very nice, I agree. Having had a good turbo 4 now, I definitely would not choose most NA v6 engines over it. Not really sure what you gain since v6s require balance...

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

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...
