Glad all are ok. Looks like it was a beautiful car, what a shame. Hope you do well on the insurance settlement, might be a total loss.

My two kids take me Porsche shopping every weekend now in the hopes I'll give them my 535. Unfortunately for them, I'm not parting with it so quickly. After almost 5 years, it still looks great and...

Great post, you almost had me on the edge of my seat. What's a DISA valve and do I have one on my N54?

Thank you for sharing your experience. I had a 530xi prior to my 535, it was a terrific car.

My car came with run flat Dunlops, a miserable tire for the Northeast. It's been over 18 months with the Michelins and they make a huge difference. Quiet, smooth and nice response over rough roads.

It's not just you. I don't think its looks alone. The F10 is well proportioned and inoffensive in its shape, designed for mass appeal. And that's just how it drives, nothing special. Those of us...

As long as you are leasing, get a BMW. If it breaks, take it back, get an interesting loaner, and return at the end of the lease. The reliability of the Lexus doesn't really help you while the car...

If you want to love your choice, go 535. Many people own a X35 and have few if any problems. Drive both and post your thoughts.

Congrats. You guys are lucky in the UK- E60 diesel must rock. What's your fuel mileage? We are very slow to adopt diesels in the states, but they are catching on.

Seems to defy the laws of physics on curves. The S is very powerful, the engine roars when you push it. Intoxicating. But it's a very stiff car with a rock hard seat. It's a pure toy. My 535 felt...

I may be bit biased, but the E60 is a great car. Once you get used to a 5, a 3 series just won't cut it. Good luck with the hunt.
