Wink 2 weeks in the 2012 535i MSPORT!

Well ive had the car 2 weeks and absolutely love it 600 miles already....
Taken a few drips to los angeles with my wife and Mother in from NY.
THERE HEAD OVER HEALS FOR THE CAR.....
Mom keeps saying....it looks like a 7 series. I keep saying...U KNOW IT!
Luxury to the max
So many gadgets to play with. Just loaded the songs onto the hard drive and they sound amazing....i recommend going with this members audio settings ....absolutely amazing

Mein auto: BMW F10 535D MSport

Professional sound settings

Fader +2 towards rear
Treble +4
Bass 0
Surround off!!!
100Hz -2
200Hz -1
500Hz 0
1KHz +2
2KHz -3
5KHz +4
10KHz +6

I have not even floored the car other than on the test drive with GP. ill wait till i hit 1200miles. Beside coming from the AMG im not exactly needing anything other than what ive been doing so far....long quiet peaceful road trips with my Family down PCH.
So nice not to have a loud car and not see the gas lcd screen say $100.00
and plus the money i saved going with Greg Poland, cant go wrong. Did i mention the guy put frigin a dozen roses on my the dashboard for my wife. Tough to top that one. You the man GP
Life is good! I am blessed..........

I think the M-Sport pack looks the best in silver. Good choice.

That is a nice looking machine. Enjoy! That was very thoughtful of Greg, now she needs to buy a car and get two dozen roses this time.

Yes, you have the temporary registration folded and scotch taped to your windshield. Most dealers have a sticker with their dealer name, etc which makes it easier for police to see the car is registered from a distance... with the pacific bmw scotch tape method I always get the evil eye from cops. Example of the sticker below (on a prius)

No scotch tape here!....clean as a whistle with the sticker. even looks better than the one they put on my AMG at Fletcher Jones in Newport Beach.
Very happy with Pacific

I got the Scotch Tape front registration deal with a business card on top from my local BMW Dealer too.

On a side note - I love Fletcher Jones's Service (not loving it so much that I have to pay for it). The free car washes are also a great perk too! This dealership is the only reason I would even consider a MB.

Not a big fan of a place "FJ" that nickel and dimes me for everything and they only pay a dollar for a land lease per yr from the city. thats a fact!

Would never in a million years give them a dollar. just saying. Thank god MBUSA gave me all my money back.Glad u like them! One of the sales people they have hound u called me today....such pleasure in telling her i bought a BMW! I swear to god u could see the steam throught he phone! She basically hung up!
ps i used to get an email and im sure you do as well..."car wash closed today for private event. Oh and it just happened to be a beautiful friday!

1st deal wasn't through Greg - scotch tape

2nd deal was ED on an M3 conv through Greg - scotch tape

Regardless, Greg is still awesome
