I will not purchase or lease a G30 without MSport brakes. The pedal feel is vastly improved and the initial bite is just so much better. Has nothing to do with tracking the car (I don't), just with...

Gee, ya think the EPA mandating a change in refrigerant to protect the ozone layer might have had an impact?

The 2020 has been around for a year, production has ended and BMW is now building the 2021's. I think you meant 2018 vs. 2021.



I had a 2011 535, a 2014 535, a 2017 540 and now a 2020 540. ...

The F10 MSports came with the dreaded Goodyear LS2 tires, which were notorious in this regard. I bet I replaced 6 on my 2011 535 during the term of the lease. My 2014 535 came with Bridgestones and...

The most important thing is you should not drive on that tire.

First, you are definitely NOT an idiot. You got a very good deal on the exact car you wanted, and it is brandy-new, not a demo or service loaner. More importantly, you got the wife to approve;...

^ This. Every 5 Series I've had has eventually developed a door squeak, going back to my E39 540 (which was far and away the worst). My 2017 was squeak-free for the first 60,000 miles.

My 2017 had some issues at first, but after the update in 2018 it was perfectly fine for the balance of my lease.

My 2020 is fine, even today when it was 102F and humid here.

Reasonable question. In the last generation (2011 through 2016) you could only get the "good" 704 MSport suspension with RWD. If you opted for xDrive you were stuck with the taller, floatier base...

The law of supply and demand. You will need to determine which is more important to you: a car that is in high demand, or a smoking deal. You can't have both. Choose wisely.
