Is there a noticeable difference between an LCI M-sport and a pre-LCI M-sport? If so, what is it?

2015 528i Impressions

I am now in Los Angeles. Would still entertain a sale (looking to get a manual F10 M5). Price reduced to $43k - car now has about 24k miles on it.

There's a strong argument for it. The E39 struck an ideal balance between luxury and dynamics.

I'm presuming the company car is a lease so model year doesn't matter. If you don't mind the gas mileage, get a 550i - the power is remarkable. 535i is more efficient and has more balanced handling...
