I'm not so sure. The F10 felt a little "tinny". I expected it to be much more solid based on the increase in weight. In addition, one of the 535s I drove had a B pillar seat belt rattle, similar to my 2008 535i - that the dealer could never really fix. It's ceratinly better than the E60 - more like half a step forward, than a full step. Just talking about the solidity of the interior and doors, and not its design and materials. Wheras the transmission and suspension are both full steps forward.
