At least with the X5 3.5 M-Sport, we get rectangular exhausts.

With the 5-series, it's only on the 550...not even the 535 M-Sport.

I did a similar move -- a 2011 Sport to a 2014 M-Sport. I was also happy with the subtle but very noticeable changes in the 2014 (like significantly reduced throttle lag, for example).

I'm pretty confident surround view is part of DA+. So you're covered there.

DDC, I believe, is a stand alone option.

A feature so stupid simple...or maybe it exists?

Why can't BMW use the bumper sensors (or some kind of sensor!) to measure if the liftgate will smack into an object when opening?

I back into my garage. I'll never open the liftgate without doing...

If you want reliability, check out Lexus or Infiniti or Acura.

Just a comment: if you're buying this car, a super-minimum build could be tough for resale/trade-in.

If you're leasing, well then it's BMW's problem. :)

F15: Configuring Sport Mode solved

I figured out how to get back functionality that my 2011 F10 had (which was taken away from my 2014 F10 and 2015 F15).

I loved being able to configure sport mode so it was chassis only, allowing...

Book early and check the cancellation policy. Most hotels have one, and usually the difference between "pay now" or "cancel until 24 hours prior to arrival" is $10-$20. Definitely worth it if plans...

I'd very much consider Audi if the lease rate delta weren't so huge.

Where you messed up is by not giving me your 5.0, and I would have happily paid the lease for your 3.5 Xline.

The 14 days is a suggestion, but not a requirement.

I've always been on business trips at the 14 day mark (sometimes I really was traveling) but manage to sign before I leave.
