ASS should not result in stalling. My F10 has never stalled during my ownership. I would take this in for BMW to address as this shouldn't be happening in your car.

You are correct that the car does not store the 'eco-mode' setting. You'll find few complaints on the forum complain about this as 'eco-mode' isn't all that helpful, though many dislike that you...

The numbers are certainly within the margin of error. In theory the 528 should handle slightly better as it is basically the same car minus 220 lbs and the 535 will be faster since it is the same...

The theory is that the 528 will handle better than the 535 as it is weighs about 220lb less and is otherwise nearly identical. As far as a credible source, how about InsideLine track tests. Here...

I've found F10 F28 with the N20 to be ultra-quiet. I'm not sure where the notion comes from that its engine noise is rough or coarse. Car and Driver's review below matches my experience:

Based on specs the 0-60 times may seem a bit suspicious. However the curb weights are not that similar (535 is about 250lbs heavier) and most dyno analysis have shown the n20 is more 'underrated'...

You are correct that I misquouted the time of the Lexus GS430. I fixed the post as it should be 5.7s. Sorry about that!

It looks like I quoted the 5-60 time for the Lexus instead of the 0-60 time. I updated the original post as you are correct that it should be 5.7 for the GS430.
