Throw in four hefty adults with luggage going up hill and then you will see that the 4-banger is in fact underpowered. Furthermore passing acceleration is far superior with the 535i. I feel the 528i...

The OP is coming from a 750i. Undoubtedly he'll find the 528i underpowered for such a heavy car. He really should go for the smooth 535i if money is not a limiting factor.

The OP should get what he paid for....a new car. He wasn't responsible for the damage and it is quite possible that an employer took it out for a spin. If it was me, I would insist on a different car.

I would go for X Line because I by far prefer the shape of the matt chrome on the airintakes. It looks so much better than Luxury Line. As for M Sport....well....it's a non-starter. I hope the X5M...

AKD are you sure your car is Carbon Black. It looks like Imperial Blue! As for washing the car, handwash is the best. See it as a bit of exercise!
