The current gen M5 is around 300 pounds heavier than the E39 M5. If BMW can figure out how to not just shed that weight, but tighten up the cars dimensions as well (the 2015 M3's interior dimensions...

This is just for auto high beam on/off and only if you have the camera to support it - has nothing do to with the no-glare/dazzle lighting technology which wasn't added until 2013. Your 2011 car does...

Yep.. No dazzle (no glare) high beams are number 1. The comfort access features are 2nd. Turning off all the chimes and warning nannies are 3rd on my list.

I agree. The F10 feels more like an evolution of the E39 vs. the E60. The E60 feels like an aberration.
