Mein Auto: 535 I X DRIVE

The weather in Springfield, VA has been very pleasant last few days! Today we are expecting in the mid 60s. Where are you located now.

I bought the car from BMW of Alexandria. I know what you mean silver being the dullest color. While I wait for my new ride to arrive, the dealer provided me with a 2012 535i silver loaner. I had few dark color vehicles before but keeping them clean is a pain though they look beautiful. All my last four cars were silver - last three being 2007 TL Tech; 2008 RL Tech (didn't like TL's 1500 RPM vibration). In 2010 I was rear ended on a stop and go traffic on 395 while going to work. The lady who plowed on me when she passed out due to medical condition at about 50-55 mph. The 2008 RL was totaled. I was amazing how the car saved me. Except for a bad whiplash I didn't have any other injury but had to undergo physical therapy for 3 months. Bought 2010 RL because of the safety reason (first hand experience) but have not been satisfied with the ride - very poor gas mileage compared to 2008 RL. The agonizing torque converter and transmission Judder. The software was updated but didn't take care of the problem. I didn't have time and patience to deal with the dealer and Acura. Test drove several other cars but after test driving the 535i couldn't resist the urge to buy one.
