I really like the contrast of the oyster and black interior on the 2013. Seems like that option is no longer available anywhere.

MBrown,
I just ordered my 550i stick, 2013. Just got in under the wire. Otherwise it would have to be a 535i

Ivory white should offer even more contrast.

Re: Official Pricing Guide 5 Series (F10) Model Year 2014

Ivory White should look great and reminds me of the white interiors in the E34's. However I wouldn't touch it due to impossibility of simple maintenance. I knew there had to be a catch by making Nappa a free option as you can't even get it in black. Somehow I get the feeling that they're just trying to clear out remaining nappa inventory on these cars or something.

I think nikcom is referring to being able to get a White with black carpeting or a White with White carpeting. Only one is listed and you have to buy a line to get it. The only F10 White photos are White on White carpeting. The 5GT has two codes for White and photos showing both.

The easiest way to spot 6WB (Multifunction Cluster Display) is that the metallic ring has a break. Also the fuel gauge (on the left) has very close tick marks.





Here's another 6WB photos from 7 series LCI press release:

Can you even get 6WB on the U.S spec F10's for the LCI? It seems you can get non-Extended Panel and then 6WA only?

Correct. I have no clue why they don't offer 6WB on the F10 in the US..

According to the GT Facelift video, it has 6WB although neither is explicitly listed in the order guide.

That is very interesting. That could mean that perhaps 6WB is standard on the GT. I think it's asafe call to assume that 6WA is. Unfortunately - as you pointed out - neither 6WA nor 6WB is mentioned. Neither as option nor as standard.

Will the new headlight be squared off at the bottom regardless of xenon or LED?

On the F10, Xenons will be round, LEDs square. I assume same applies to GT.

As someone else pointed out in anpther thread about the paddle shifters, the video is of a European model and not reflecting the US packaging or lack thereof.

Yeah, that's why I said it could be standard - although that's not very likely. I'm a bit surprised though that neither the 6WA nor the 6WB is mentioned anywhere in regards to the GT. What's for sure is that if you get a fully loaded GT with all the technology, at least 6WA would be necessary to make it work.

But I guess this order guide isn't free of errors. It also list manual side window shades and a power rear sunshade as an option on the GT - and I doubt that will work.

Could 840 be a code for inreased speed limiter? With performance tires it is up to 155 instead of 135?

I bet you're right, that makes sense since the max speed does go up with performance tires. Good catch!

I guess that was me in the F07 forum

So I just went through the F10 and F07 ordering guides again. For the F10, ZDA (driver assistance package) explicitly listed 6WA. But for the F07, ZDA doesn't list 6WA. Could it be that the F07 guide is wrong and that ZDA should come with 6WA?

Yes 840 is "Increased top speed limiter" (from 2013 F10 ordering guide)

Thanks for this info. I am also looking to order a 2014 European Delivery 535. Contacted a dealer and got a quote for $2500 over ED invoice. Is this reasonable?

I'm guessing a local dealer? I would be shooting for $750-1000 over euro invoice, even if you have to go with an out of state dealer. That is unless you have a trade in or special circumstance that would require you to stay closer to home.
