Usually dealers won't program keys bought on Ebay. You're better off going through the dealer.

I've noticed some lag on my F10, but it is negligible compared to what I had on my E60. Happy with the acceleration on this car.

I agree with posters who suggest CPO. 75k miles is on the high side. Bought my '11 550i with 39k miles (still under factory warranty) a few months ago. Very happy with the purchase. Wife has a 535i...

Agree. It's your car - dress it the way you want, or not. You don't need someone else's opinion about what looks good to you.

Go with the 550. The wife has the E60 535, which is a great car, and it is plenty fast. But the 550 is a whole different level of available power. It is truly a joy to drive. (I traded my E60 550 for...
