Thankful for my 5 Series

Totally agree. High margins need to follow from having such a good product that people will pay a higher price. Bmw is hoping to have it both ways but they are walking a very fine line

Good illustration. I think the MKS was introduced in 2009 while the F10 was introduced in 2011, right? Though they do updates and facelifts that can partiaully address crash test results, I think the...

I bet most 5s are base 528s with maybe just premium package. Just like most 320s I see. Within both series, there's a wide range of choice in terms of options, price points and performance so I don't...

Mine stays in the center console, plugged into the USB port. With bluetooth, bmw apps, USB connectivity, and Siri eyesfree there's not much reason to touch the phone while driving. :dunno:

Yes, they are also meant to be used in the scenario you mentioned. Again, not a common scenario in the US but does happen in Europe when you park on the side of a narrow road.

That's been my observation as well. Personally, I like the sound of the 528 and that I can actually hear it, while the 550 sounds like a distant vacuum cleaner. The 535 sounds good when you really...

I don't like the way the fogs look either. Especially on the LCI models since they are now larger and centered in the openings (looks goofier). True they are now led but that's the only good...
