+1. Moreover, the F10 is bigger than the OP's E60, in some, but not all, interior and exterior dimensions. Everyone should be more comfortable on longer road trips in the F10 vis-a-vis the E90, and at least as comfortable vis-a-vis the E60, just as Mrs. Bimmerific and I learned when her sister and brother-in-law visited us for Thanksgiving.
