Haven't had the car long enough to experience that yet-but I've been lucky with the buttons in my past bmws in that regard. My issue with them is that they wiggle around when pressed and don't feel...

Nav - Don't Use Unless You Know Where You're Going

There's an option in the nav that I enaed via coding called "full text search". Basically it allows you to keyword search the navs built in database. I believe it searches all street names and POIs...

Yes xdrives have hydraulic steering. But motorboat411 has a rwd car and apparently doesn't feel a change.

Good point. I find that the combos that look most appealing in pics or the showroom aren't necessarily the ones I'd want to live with or pay for. So I tend to stick with the classics. This time I...

My car has the top speed limiter and the slats. But I still feel a difference between comfort and sport modes. So I don't think there's any correlation. One idea would be for everyone to use the...

In terms of coverage, nappa also goes on the seat backs, center console and doors. Individual leather adds the lower dash.

Funny- my 528 idles "smooth as silk" in Eco pro or with AC off. But otherwise there's some vibration that can be felt in the seats (though not so much through the steering wheel).

A Classic Comedy Movie for All 5 Series Drivers

Ha- I'm laughing less at the video itself and more at the fact that I watched this same video while waiting for my 528. There aren't many reviews on YouTube and I can tell you're scraping the bottom...

Mark- totally unrelated question on the standard seats. Do the headrests tilt forward and back (like they did in older bmws)?

Anyone not having problems with 19s

You might want to add location to your survey. Someone living in Florida will likely have less trouble than someone in ny

The 328D is pure BMW

Steve- you make some valid points but I don't think option availability is that big a deal. It is very possible to special order a US 320 with any of the missing options you desire such as HK or HUD....

That's pretty much it but:
-if you have SAT the car will not upshift automatically at redline in sport+
-I think you need to be in sport+ to use launch control

Wow- in the US we are very envious of the 530 (we never got it here). I think they only sold them in the middle east. Are they still making them or did they discontinue it for 2014?

Interesting...

1500 mile impressions (2014 528)

I do have sport trans. It's a very noticeable difference but I'd be surprised if 535s with eps didn't have this. I do know that the driving mode switch wasn't standard until 2014 - so perhaps in...

1500 mile impressions (2014 528)

Sport mode makes it heavier. Do you have xdrive? Mine is rwd with eps - perhaps the hydraulic units in the xdrive models aren't adjustable

1500 mile impressions (2014 528)

I like this car more than I thought I would. It rides much better than my 335 without feeling like a boat. Steering feel is decent as long as you leave it in "sport" mode (more on that later). Seems...

535i vs 535d(US)...which is more fun?

I think the LCI no line front bumper without fogs is the best looking f10 bumper. And I have the msport pkg. the big round fogs that bmw uses on the f10 look dated and ugly IMO. Not sure why...

I think the m5 bumper looks much better than the msport. Go for it-- as long as you don't put an m5 badge on the grille people here will still talk to you. The rest of the world could care less. :)
