Hello 5 Post

Hi Everyone,

Just thought i'd say hello as i've just found this great forum.
Well my little baby son has arrived 4 weeks ago so my little Melbourne Red 35i Msport E89 Z4 is now on its way out and I have on order a Sophisto Grey 535d Msport with a couple of toys, that should reach the dealer on the 26th.
I was really disappointed to see the red leather (BMW use to call it coral in the E89) wasn't available in the F10 as in my head that would have been a great combination. There seems quite a lack of colour choice at the moment where the cabin is conserned.
So just thought i'd introduce myself and say hi.
Is there anything to watch for with the F10 from new? As there was with the Z4?

You'll need to find larger parking spots.

Thanks, that's good to know, as the E89 had a couple of niggles common to most cars from new.

Will post the full spec shortly for everyone.

I've come from a E89 msport running on 19" 326m wheels shod with runflats so the F10 Msport on 18" and runflats is like a magic carpet ride for me. lol.

Yes, post the specification, we are interested.

My F11 is near magic carpet ride as well, I'm on 18" run-flats and active suspension. Much better than my old E91 even with non run-flats and 17" wheels.

Been Driving around for a week and a bit now and although i'm limiting the revs etc until the car has a few more miles on her, the car already feels a match for my 35i E89 in everyday driving.
Spec is 535D MSport,
Sophisto Grey,
Black Leather.
The only toys I speced were, Pro media +, xenon lights, the sun protection glass.
