Thanks, we love it. I probably would not have ordered the ceramic controls, but I do really like them. I'm a little concerned because people say they get hot and we have hot summers, but I guess we will figure that out.

One strange thing that I noticed... I have the rubber BMW floor mats from my 2011. I sent to put them into the new car this afternoon and while the front seat ones fit the back seat ones don't. Any idea why this would be so? it's really strange.

Nice window tint will keep the ceramic controls from getting cooked in direct sunlight.
Congrats on your new 5er!

Congratulations on the car!

Was the 528 an xDrive?

The 528 was a regular drive with Sport, but not M-sport.

Apparently the LCI refresh uses somewhat different seats or seat tracks, which is why they won't fit. There have been a few threads on this same subject.

Lol! You are a great sport my friend! I so much enjoy your posts. And it's so true, this machine is awesome especially if driven hard.

Judy, congrats on your new car! Very nice taste and color combination. I'm not a fan of perforated seats because I hate the dust they gather but those look great.

Congrats! I think this is a better choice than the 4 series. A white M-sport F10 is always stunning (I'm a little biased)!

we are feeling very spoiled with this car. Quite an upgrade from our 528i. I will have the windows tinted, but not just yet.

Agreed- and that's why I went with a 5er also.

However, I just drove this home from the dealer and I can tell you that it's not bad at all. Click image for larger version

Congrats on the new car. The F10 is a great middle road for good handling and interior quality. I think the idea BMW would have the handling of the 2, the looks of the 4, and the luxury feel of the 5.

The wheels are throwing you off. It's actually a 428gc with 19" staggered set up.

That's a pretty sharp 4 you have there. We also considered the 4 series, but the 535 won out. It's just a great car!

I really loved the 4gc but it was to cramped for me and we knew our first bmw had to be a 535 with every option we wanted. Mayb do a 3 after the ats lease is up. Or the G30 but that's to much wishful thinking

Thanks Judy.
The 4 is my brothers (my configuration though )
Here's mine (your twin) with winters on.

I love your car, but then I have the same one so of course I do. I have the same one!! Alpine White is such a beautiful color. The 535 is so pretty in white. I wanted to get my first 5 in white, but hubby wanted Space Gray. He loves the white now though.
