+1. I don't want my car to look the inside of a cluttered minivan. My house may be a little messy, but nothing is visible in my car except my umbrella on the back floor. And, drinking and eating...

Do you mean the 2-part pulls (except for driver)? I like that -- actually my Individual interior has Amaro on the front part and black on the back part -- sophisticated look. The seam doesn't seem...

I leave it in my pants :):p. I can work the button by feel, LOL. I usually only use the fob when I have passengers, as I stated, so they don't have to wait. Speaking of unlocking, I think the...

It follows the drivers door current setting. I know what you mean. If I've already unlocked my door (driver - single pull) and want to unlock the others centrally before I get out, I open my door...

You should have bought the Lexus.

Seriously though, a couple of comments:

I have a '14 535i with Individual paint (Azurite Black) and Amaro Merino interior. The two other "blues" you mention (not Imperial) will cost significantly more because they are not current...

You can lock the doors from outside with the engine running, assuming the fob is with you, outside the car.

OK, I won't say I don't like it, I'll just say the two times I tried it, it made my powerful 535i feel like a wheezing, weak airbag of a vehicle, and I will never choose to use it again. Good luck...

The 19" tires in general are the ones that seem to give people problems. What size do you have? I've had RFT's now on 3 BMW's and haven't had a minute of trouble. I even had one on my new '14 535i...

Have we asked you before why not have simply ordered what you wanted? It's kind of crazy searching when it just isn't necessary. I'm not talking about trying to find some end of year bargain.

So if recirculate mode is off, air doesn't naturally flow through the vents while the car is moving? I haven't tried it. If not, it would mean the vents are somehow closed internally when the...

Nobody seems to be interested, but how many miles on your 550i? Why would a BMW engine have a valve issue in less than even 100K miles? Is it under warranty? I would also think that BMW would be...

In my estimation, from viewing a lot of cars, non-metallic black is much harder to maintain than a darker (black or otherwise) metallic color. I had 3 Black Sapphire BMW's and now an Azurite Black,...

People scream about "needing" the LED's for $1900. I agree, the standard xenons and related lighing design, the amber horizontal bar, etc., look cool at night.

For 2014, fogs were standard, and available, only with a "line", Luxury, Modern, MSport. I have a no-lines 535i, and do not have fogs (which I knew going in). For 2015, they have again made the fog...

It is only activated automatically when shifting to reverse. You can press the button, as you found, at other times if desired. That's how it works.

Cabin air, and from what we've read in previous posts, the air is sucked down into the seat and exhausted underneath. So cold air is not blowing up through the seat.
