My first and new 2016 BMW 535i M sport

I've been an Infiniti driver for years. Just ended my lease of a 2014 Infiniti Q50 Sport, such a great car.

But I've always wanted a BMW

Found this gem at my local BMW dealer.

Brand new 2016 535i M sport, not as loaded as I would but it has lots of options.

MSRP $67,070
After dealer cash and dealer discounts I got a steal of $53,750 plus tax/fees

So far I am loving it. Even with the new body sitting inside the dealership I couldn't pass up this price.

Who knows I could even trade in this one for the new style in a couple of years

Yes space gray, it has a lot. Easier to say what it doesn't.

That's a sick machine. Enjoy. And IMHO this generation LOOKS way better than the new one.

Do you happen to have a worksheet that I can use to utilize getting such a discount? I can't seem to break the $9500 discount mark and EVERYONE I've seen on this forum have posted up at least 12K off

No, I do not. However I am in the car business myself and know the GM very well so it helped out very much when making the purchase.

Nice!!!! How do you like your 550i... I'm looking to get a 550/535 but I'm not sure which route to go... a lot of people are telling me not to mess with the 550 because it has a lot of issues, especially with the motor... and then I'm like I don't want to downgrade in power from my current q50s and go with the 300hp 535i.. what's your take? Please help me out.

That's what the warranty is for. Many of the 550i engine issues have been resolved and I'll extend my service plan and warranty when the b2b is up... the 550 performance is nuts ... the 535 can't hold a candle but is a great car in its own right

I come from many infinitis and you'll never have Nissan infiniti reliability in a bimmer

Depends on if you want excellent power with excellent mileage from a very reliable engine or most excellent power with not so good mileage from an engine with questionable reliability. When I bought my 535's (yes, we have 2, a '12 and a '14) I figured I wouldn't have much of an opportunity to use the V8's power. I've never felt wanting for more power; ESPECIALLY in Sport mode.

I'm getting better mileage in my 550 than the outgoing 2008 g35x

The 8spd and eco pro mode are to thank

Congrat's on the new 5! It looks like I'll be passing up on the G30 for an F10 as well...1) great deals on outgoing 5's and 2) the new style hasn't fully grown on me yet...I love the look online but in person...appears big, not as compact / sporty as the F10.

Sounds like you bought vs. leased?

I actually saw a 2017 540i at the dealer this weekend and it had the msport and it was actually impressive inside and out. Not 100% sold on the exterior but interior was a big step in the right direction
