Sport+ comes with the sport auto option.

OP: you can disable that screen that appears on idrive when selecting sport mode. Think it's somewhere in settings. Configure driving modes maybe? Can't...

I like it too except for the rattle from the latch. For some reason, bmw has fitted this compartment to euro spec cars since atkeast the e46. They finally saw fit to give it to us with the f10 and 30.

In some ways I actually prefer the design of the new mustang (exterior and interior) to both the 2 and 4 series. Would likely never actually get one over a bmw since the lease would end up being the...

With one annoying exception: in stop and go driving the zf8 loves downshifting to 1st then up shifting to 2nd. Even in manual mode you can't prevent the downshift to 1st unless you hold onto the...

Yeah- I agree that it might be too much Amaro. Also, some of the plastic bits in the headliner would be black so those would stick out.

Hmm- check out the configurator- it seems to add it when you select merino leather. Also ask your CA- might just be a matter of specifying the correct code on the order to get it.

In that case, perhaps you could get HK and LED? Would still be less than b&o.

I believe the headliner is about 1k as a standalone. But it's now included with induvidual merino leather for 2500. So...

LED Package or B&O Sound?

Yeah I understand. My current expensive "want" item is adaptive cruise. Would also like an alcantara headliner for some reason. I assume you already have HK on your current car?

Given that you liked the 535d almost as much as the 550, Id go with that. Bmw has had (and continues to have) issues with the n63 engine in the 550. Just seems like a potential headache worth avoiding

Yeah I've found Eco pro not worth using. I use sport mode for trips of less than maybe 100 miles and comfort mode for both stop and go and long hauls.

Honest question RE Steering Experience

The only difference between sport and sport+ is dsc and that the transmission won't automatically upshift at redline in manual mode. Otherwise it's identical to sport mode
