F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
The sixth generation of the BMW 5 Series Sedan (F10) was produced from 2011 - 2016 with LCI updates arriving in 2014. In the US BMW offered a hatchback 5 Series Gran Truismo (F07) and the rest of the world also go a Station Wagon/Touring version F11.

Active Roll not in 2012 528I

What am I missing? it looks like the 2012 528i is not available with the active roll stabilization suspension; its only in the 535 and 550.
What a shame!

No change there. The 528i was offered from the start (in the US, anyway) with adjustable shocks, but not the active roll bars.

To be honest you would be better off putting the $2,500 price of the ARS option towards a bigger engine than towards ARS if you are buying a 528. At least if you think in terms of bang for buck performance upgrades.

I totally agree. I test drove car with and without it back-to-back. I could not feel the difference except when taking freeway curvy ramp at 70mph.

I decided to go with 535 instead, I could not be happier. You always gets bigger smile when putting your foot down on 535i gas pedal compared to 528's.
