I hate cars with any lumbar support, but my 2012 550'with the Luxury Seating Package were the most comfortable seats I've ever sat in. I'm surprised to read your comments unless the are not deflating...

Your write up is good, but I don't consider an engine with turbo lag and "soft on the low end" to be a great engine. BTW, I love my A7, so I'm obviously not anti Audi.

I like you and respect you, so I'm going to put this as respectfully as I can (wink/nod). You have hit the crux of the matter. You don't really know when it's due. BMW thought they knew, but the...

There is no need to buy a 535 or 550 either, both of which burn more fuel than a 528. Are you going to take a stand on people buying more power than you deem prudent?

BTW, most motor oil is...

Depends upon driving. I'm not hung up on 7500 miles if the car is driven enough to fully warm the car etc. But it's cheap insurance to err on the side of too often.

Use anything that meets BMWs specs and change the oil every 7500 miles or so if you own the car, or at the service interval that comes up in the car if you are leasing. That is my recommendation....
