That's apparently what they did to my car. But I haven't noticed a substantial change in any of the onboard displays. I'm betting that the old "service due since 1/2000" message comes back in a...

That's what I thought re: the lower dusting pads. But the pads on my F10 do not grip nearly as well as the softer ones I used on my old E39. That car would stop on a dime.

How Long Do Factory Brakes Last?

I've searched several threads and there seems to be a huge variance re: how long the original brake pads/rotors last. I'm at 40k miles with my original pads/rotors and the on board computer system...

I thought they finally fixed mine, but about 3 weeks ago the "service due since 1/2000" notice came back. This is the third time it's happened. The last time last summer the service advisor said it...

My 2011 528i is not as quick as my old E39 530. The E39 was a special car. I still miss it.

Don't know if my M-Sport package helps, but my 2011 528i is very happy at hgher speeds. At 80 mph and up the car seems to hug the road better than at 50.

But I also notice the crosswind issue. ...

Other than the tip-in issue (which now seems fixed after three attempts) my 2011 528i has been very reliable. No real issues. If you like the car, buy it.

I can't help, but mine usually is off by about twice that. It always gives better mileage than I'm actually getting.

Reasonable post. It's all about choices and wants/needs.

I test drove the 528i and the 535i extensively when I bought my car in the summer of 2011 (it's an old six cylinder 528i). I just didn't think the extra power of the 535i was worth the extra $$. ...
