My new F10

Man its so awesome I haven't had time to do anything else but drive or play around with the inside stuff .

The buying process was easy and awesome as could be. I couldn't be more thankful to all the forum members, founders and sponsors for making this site so awesome and useful. So much information and past experiences on here it turned a man who's never had a car payment, into a confident knowledgeable BMW buyer.

Learned so much from here I first lost out on a potential car close to me trying to haggle a little with them. The car was ultimately missing the Comfy seats I really wanted hence why we were haggling. After they sold from under me, I found another one less than a week just like that one but with comfy seats, and with one of our board sponsers Greg Poland! Seems like it was meant to be. I had a smile the whole drive back from LA comfy in my seats.

Thank you to Greg for helping me, knowing how busy he must be, to answer all my questions.

And some quick pics:

F10 535d M Sport...outstanding car. Congratulations!

You may already have some mods in mind, but there are a few subtle mods that really improve the look of these cars. Deleted reflectors and black grilles are a nice start.

Here in Europe most of cars are diesel but some governments are planning to ban them in the cities because of high NOx emissions. Future is electric.

Diesel really is amazing for high congestion areas like LA and San Francisco. I'm loving the torque of the 535D in around town driving. On the expressway it's pretty gut-less though. I wish they would have given us the 300+ hp the Europeans get.

Nox

Most modern Diesels now use Ad-Blu to reduce NOX emmisions, mine is EURO 6 which is pretty much best you can get now. Agree electric will take over eventually also with with Hydrogen Fuel Cells but I am really enjoying Diesel Power now !

Get it while you can !

My 535 MSport came from Greg Poland at Pacific too, just not a d. Greg was super easy to work with. The next thing you should do is contact Octopump and get it coded. Well worth it. I love all the things Rich coded for me.

Purchased not a lease sorry can't help with lease deal comps.

Coding is set for Monday with Rich. Hoping to tint the windows by the next weekend and all should be good for a while.
