2012 5281 - Halloween Treat!

After a frustrating few weeks - the car arrived at the dealership in early October, but we were out of town until 10/29 - we picked up our beauty on Halloween. Very limited driving so far, but nothing but praise, including the stop/start feature.

Congrats. You will love it. It's just so smooth and quite. I've had my 528 for almost a month now and couldn't be happier. I wish I had a longer commute.

Congrats. Your 528 is almost identical to mine which is currently on order. It's nice to see a Black Sapphire 528 in the midst of all of these Carbon Black 535s with the Sport packages. While I understand the appeal of the 535s, the 528 would seem to be plenty of car for me. Let us know it performs. Good luck.

When did you order? Can you give me a time line?
I just ordered 528Xi Black Sapphire as well. I have a production # dated Oct 28th.

Thanks.

I ordered mine on October 22nd. I don't have a production # or any other tracking info. I was told to expect 7-8 weeks for delivery. It's nice to see some other Black Sapphires out there. I was beginning to think I was the only guy getting one. I am really looking forward to delivery.

We ordered the car on 8/10 - dealer received it the first week of October. We were out of town, unable to pick up until 10/31. but well worth the wait. I'm guessing @ 6 - 8 weeks from order to delivery.

How do you like those 17 inch wheels? I think many upgrade to 18 inch/low profile but I did not. Contrary to many, I think the 17 inch wheels look ok. Prolly ride better too.

I've never compared the ride with the larger wheels. I stuck with the 17s on my '06 525 xi and loved the ride. It's really a personal choice, but I have no regrets re the ride or the look of the 17" wheels.
