glennmcgee said:I picked up my 2006 530i yesterday at Capital Cities BMW in Albany, it has 17 miles on it now. I was a good and compliant "break in" driver but several things stand out. The torque of the engine in the low revs is markedly better than 2005 - and the thing takes off like my old (2000) 540 in the 4500-7000 band. Ok oops perhaps I did drive the thing a bit aggressively... :tsk: The steering mod is noticeably better than the previous 'tuning' of the steering assist. Not sure what else to say but I am very impressed and glad to have waited the extra month and frankly it was worth the higher money factor and extra $500 to get the '06 imho.
Do you get this steering wheel with the 2005 545i SMG???anlauf said:You know, looking at the photos in the link above the steering wheel is the M-Technick Sport wheel. I am wondering if this is a 2006 Sport Package change or if it is specific to the SMG transmission?
