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...

I've done the Munich tour once -- and it will probably be my last.

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.

When I recently shopped the A6, a Prestige 3.0T was in the $950-$1050 range, while the 535xi M-Sport could be had for high...

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.

Of course, if getting to Vegas requires you to take the same freeways to get to the ones that lead to Vegas, you can add on the 2.5 hours to the normal 3.5 hours it takes to get to Vegas. :)

I'd have to say the M-Sport as well.

But I also have to say BMW really bundles a lot of preferences that are only available in the Exec Package, and I think it's kind of crappy. HUD and satellite...

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.

You guys can pick on the Mexicans all you want, but a mid-February delivery in sunny Puerto Vallarta appeals to me quite a bit! (Plus, no need for snow tires.)

+1

The design is good, but materials have felt very cheap lately -- this from my 2014 535xi and 2015 X5. There are also extra rattle noises that just shouldn't be there.
