They're not going to reduce the length (IMO) because the F10 only grew 2.5 inches from the E60.

As far as weight, the new car will weigh just as much as before. Theyll talk all about the weight...

I read that the F10 was introduced in November 2009 as a 2010 model (for Germany). So a July 2016 introduction is only a few months short of the 7-year mark.

It's all good for me because my...

Yes I did, because I got BMW Connected to work on my S3. Still, how do I link the app to my BMW Assist account?

Where is the Classic vs. New colors option? My car is a 2014 F10 and the colors are particularly difficult to interpret. Is there an update somewhere?

Nappa costs more (on EU price lists) and it's generally softer and more refined feeling. Dakota is coarse and rough, and has much more texture.

My 2007 530i weighted only 3,450 lbs, and that, I'm sure had a lot to do with the sporty feel. Also, the ARS system in the sport package had a lot to do with it.

The F10 does feel wide, but according to BMW, it is only 0.5 inches wider than the E60. That's right, only one-half of an inch.
