New X5 35i

Got mine on Thursday.

Ordered 3/4
Production started 3/12
Production ended 3/20
At dealer 3/24
Picked up 3/27


Here is my config:
Dark Graphite Metallic
Luxury Line
Cold Weather Package
Driver Assistance Package
Driver Assistance Plus
Lighting Package
Luxury Seating Package
Premium Package
Space-saver spare
Aluminum running boards
Rear manual side window shades
Harman Kardon surround sound system

~400 miles driven so far. Still building up my impressions, but have a few comments to share.

1. I expected that LED lights are significantly brighter than xenon, but can't say there is obvious diference. I think I need direct comparison with xenon and LED next to each other.
2. I have a feeling that seat ventilation is a bit weak, I can't even feel it on my back. I had F10 and seat ventilation was better three
3. I read comments that F15's drive comfort is better than on F10. It is not on my case. Maybe because I had Dynamic Drive package on F10 and stock suspension on F15.
4. I found that tire pressure is set 38psi for front wheels and 48 psi for rear. Is it what everyone else has?

Will update you guys if I find anything else. Other than above mentioned thing everything else is cool. I love this car!

Congrats!!!

I believe the recommended tire pressure are 38 front and 41 rear. A bit weird, but that's how it is.

My Tire pressure says 36 Front and 41 Rear for my 20" Pirelli P Zero but today my vehicle said my tire pressure was low and the front tires were about 36.5 and the rears were about 41.5 so I think there must be a mistake for mine.
