BMW Innovation Drive Toronto

Yesterday, me and a couple of friends were at the BMW Innovation Drive. It featured the 1 Series, 3 Series Diesel and 335i.

And on another slalom course, it featured the F10. 535i and 550i. The course for the F10 was a bit more conservative, guess Bimmer didn't want us slamming the new 5 through corners aggressively lol.

My thoughts,

1) Car looks much better in Person. And looks great in all colours
2) Interior is very nice. Although with certain colours looks better than others. I drove one with the Brown Interior. I liked the look.
3) Car is great handling. However, maybe bc it wasn't a full test drive I couldn't really feel the total experience with the F10.
4) iDrive is MUCH BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I give it props finally.

That being said, I still wish it was a bit more aggressive looking. can't wait for the M Package to come out. I think the XF has more exterior appeal but the F10's interior is superior.

Here are some pics - not great quality but its nevertheless.
