Just want to add, I am a real BMW fan, had loads from the E46 320d, 320d, 330i, E39 528i, 530i, 120d, 123d, E91 320d, 335i, 535d, M3, M3 CSL, E65 730d and the F10 just feels like a let down.

It doesn't do anything wrong, at all, but......I don't know, it just leaves me cold.
I think it is trying to do the exclusive, comfy thing more than previously, but it still falls along way short of others in that area.

The decider was me borrowing an A6 s-line avant, not only did it feel more comfy and special, it also seemed to handle better in some respects! An Audi that handles better??!!
C'mon BMW, what are you playing at?

I am sure the new 5 series appeals to more of the people more of the time, but to me it is not what I buy a 5 series for. If I want comfort I will go Merc, if I want sporty I go BMW, but not anymore.

I'm sure I will be back soon, maybe an F31 MSport?
