Track test of F10 535 by inside line

Inside Line tests hundreds of vehicles a year, but not every vehicle gets a full write-up. The numbers still tell a story, though, so we present "IL Track Tested."

I already described the experience here: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=475681 Right after the delivery, I drove 250 miles around town and got to Atlanta to spend the night. Today, I drove the rest of the way down to Houston, for a total of 1004 miles. Here are my impressions of the many hours behind the wheel of this car. The HiFi sound...
