Not in sunny states like California. Most of the BMW sedans you'll find in dealer's inventory will be RWD.

I am very surprized to learn that since F10 has one of the nicest interior in its class. What type of leather (e.g. Dakota/Napa/Merino) did you have in your F10 and what type of leather do you have...

My 2015 F01 always rolls even after setting the parking brake - so this is probably not new to G12.

Both are very nice options - you cannot go wrong in either one.

As someone who recently moved from a 535i to a 750i, I must add that even a SWB 7 is a very large sedan and drives very differently...

Ditch the cap cost reduction (it does not help you in any way) and go with MSD - otherwise it's a solid deal.

I went from a 535i to a SWB 750i (which is not too different than a loaded 550i).

If you are not going to track your car, I'd suggest a 550i. The N63 engine has way more power than you'll be able...

Here's a nice review of the new Jaguar XF R-sport

(with a comparison with F10 at the very end which I found spot on)

Audi S6 has a fine TT 4L V8 which offers a nice balance of power and economy (450 HP w/ 27 MPG highway). I do not think any of the 400+ HP inline or vee sixes do better in terms of efficiency.

I don't see any improvement in steering feel between '13 535i and '15 750i. Both of them feel artificial / disconnected compared to the E90.

I didn't like the design when F30 was introduced in 2012 - and now like it even less. Hopefully, next 5-er won't get that dreadful hockey stick from G12.

My 750i lease initiated on 10/20/2015 already requires buying extra miles four months before the lease termination. I thought it was a 7-er only restriction at first. Sigh.

1. 0
2. 8

The TT V8 is totally wasted on a typical Bay Area commute - though I sometimes put wannabe racers in Camaro/Mustang in proper place. But that doesn't require WOT.
