Just got my new 528i, some observations

Have the car for 2 days now. Space grey color. I am generally quiet pleased with this new 5 series, but some how not so excited as when I got my X3 last year. Maybe because no need to wait.

Some observations :

Positive :
1) Superb Drive quality
2) 10.2" LCD with GPS, very cool
3) Quiet Cabin

Negatives :

1) Not enough storage space! I got keys, my phone ( which cannot fit anywhere so have to keep in my pocket ), parking cards, parking tickets, change for toll and all the car provided is two cup holder slots. The door slots are so narrow, can barely put anything. .

3) Aircon some slight creaking noise at startup but gone after a while.

Think I will still be going back to my X3 most of the time. Especially it is now rainy weather. ( In my city, frequent rains = floods )

Anyone knows where to find a socket to charge the phone in front? I don't think it's the cigarette lighter....
