Yeah, my 550 has the sport trans with paddles. I missed the paddles on my two hour joyride with the 528. I do really like the paddles. And I missed the HUD too.

But yeah, you could be right in...

Yeah, this 528 is a base so there is a transmission difference between it and yours.

I agree with you on the more fun part. After I posted my message, I took this car on a two hour mountain...

I have a 2014 528 loaner right now while my 2013 550 gets an oil leak fixed. I must say the transmission shifts *significantly* smoother in this vehicle than it does in my 550. The shifting is...

In my 550, shifting from 2nd to 3rd is rather clunky, even in sport +, in comparison to other shifts and since it's 2nd to 3rd (as opposed to say, 4th to 5th), it's pretty noticeable and annoying.

Opticoat is a one time thing. It is a clear coat that is something like 100x thicker than the factory clear coat. It is easy to apply. You do it once and that's it.

And everyone's perspective is different. Over three years (life of a lease), that right there is a new 55" 4K TV and a trip to Cancun for two at the nicest all-inclusive.

I haven't had them long enough to give a respectable review, but I will say this:

End of the year decision: 535xi or 550xi? (both drivers chime in)
