I have Dakota leather. I give a big thumbs up. It is soft yet durable (so far) and looks great. The perforated seats (for the in-seat cooling I review above) no-doubt contribute to the softness. ...

I'd be interested if anyone knows how to code off the washers. I asked at the dealer about this as well as at a 3rd party BMW repair shop and neither one had any ideas.

I thought it would wear off by now but somehow the interest in washing it has kept up since April. We'll see how it holds up when it turns cold.

By the way not sure what age your kids are, but I...

I hand wash mine usually once per week. It actually takes less time than taking it to a car wash and I know it won't be scratched.

I had pretty much the same cars on my list as you had. Test drove most of them. BMW had the best combination of sportiness and luxury for me.

As to the 535 vs 550 you need to test drive them. ...

#1 would be to remove the shift paddles (by deleting the Sport Auto Transmission option).

#2 change would be to add Active Roll Stabilization.

By the way I got all the other packages in my 550...

South Carolina Drivers School

Now that I've got my new 550 I've started thinking of the BMW driving school in South Carolina. The wife seemed open to me vanishing for a few days to go.

I've never been to a driving school...

I have some initial experience with the driver assistance package. I find it somewhat marginal. The lane departure warning is not useful in normal driving. Only very late at night while tired. I...

Comfort Access

rlsolomon

I just ordered a 550i with Sport (not M-Sport) and no paddles

I test drove both versions. I did order the Sport but not the M-Sport option. And no paddles. I liked the shifter better with SAT but did not like the paddles. Felt they got in the way and did...
