Not to start a "model wars", but if you had a 535i, you wouldn't think about the G37, is my guess. Totally different cars and segments though, the G37 and F10. You have "graduated" to a full-size...

Even a decent lever-type tire machine has a plastic or teflon guard to prevent scratching. Better guess is the operator didn't know his job.

Congrats! I made a similar move last year from an '11 to '14. I got the Merino Amaro Brown. The Individual interiors are superbly executed and make a huge difference. Enjoy!

I guess Space Grey is darker than white, but I wouldn't really consider it a dark color. Are you saying you think Space Grey, or the Individual Moonstone, should be "M" only? Thanks, but Individual...

Maybe there's another thread from before, but what happened to your 2014 MY that looks to be pretty similar to the '15? Have you driven the car again since they said it "was fixed"?

Are you serious?? There's no on-demand measuring function anymore? If there is, you mean it just says "level OK" or not? Stupid.

+1. In addition, the fan speed indicator does not change as the fan speed automatically changes. It remains stationary indicating the selected intensity range.

It actually seems a bit darker, and even more "vivid" or intense, than DSB, according to the shots at that referred URL above. Interesting.
