Buyers remorse

OP, when you're concerned about mpg, you were talking about the cost or the frequent stop to the gas station?

Please note M5 has bigger gas tank than regular F10, it reduces the need to go to the...

New F10 550i M-sport replaces E60 550i m-Sport today

Sorry to say that there's nothing you can do to improve the car. I gave up on my 535i.

BMW is not the "ultimate driving machine" anymore.

If you need the space, the only way to go is M5. This...

My review of the GS 350 FSport vs. 535...long

Congratz to OP! I test drove 2013 GS F-sport when I had 2011 535 for 1 year.

I almost traded my F10. Even with drivetrain below 535i (only 6 speed for the 2013), GS is much more fun to drive. It...

Totally agree. In comfort mode, there's no ride sacrifice compared regular F10 with RFTs.

Good you didn't turn on the infotainment. Their mouse-like UI is not user-friendly at all.

Got M5 CP to replace 2011 535i

Thanks. I thought I didnt need the extra power. But, when you accelerate from 60-90 in an M5, it just brings smile to your face :)

Yes. I test drove a bunch of cars S4, S6, 335i, e90 M3 and 550i before deciding on the M5.

The 550i is smooth and powerful, but it doesn't give you an exciting feeling I was looking for.

I haven't posted for a while. I used to own 2011 535i (July 2011 production) which is a great luxury family sedan. My car had some minor early production weakness such as throttle...

Unless yours was smooth before, throttle jerk is common on F10 before 2014.

The LCI "Steering Feel" thread.

Although there has been improvement from 2011 to 2014, I would say BMW still needs to redesign their EPS steering.

Their steering is very subpar compared the E60, E39 eras.

It's an irony that I...

2012 535 or wait for 550

Get LCI F10 if you can, BMW improves and solves a lot of things in LCI version such as jerkiness, faster shifting, adjustable bolster, better steering, etc.

2014 Frozen Grey M5 Individual

How does 2014 non-cp and 2014 CP compare in term of steering feel and body roll specifically?
