Bear in mind that vehicle is sitting on the factory 18's... And before anyone starts, the "///M" designation come from factory (and, "Yes", they are also on the door sills.)

Hope these pics help (and one of the sport seats... just for good measure
Look at those beautiful seats, the color and contour as well as that cinnamon brown leather, just beautiful!

This is not entirely true. While the BMW website does say the M-suspension will be included for M-sport builds starting September, there are cars that were built mid to late August that has the 704 M-sport suspension. There are a few cars on here that falls under that, mine included.

By process of elimination, it appears that 704 was included starting August 19th (9 days after I took delivery, and 5 days after the announcement came out, prior to which my Dealer was told there will be no 704 in the US for 2014 thus denying me the option to cancel and reorder)

Sorry to hear that, buddy. I would be furious if I were in that predicament. BMW really should make more amends than the measly few hundred dollars offered to buyers who missed out on the M-sport suspension.

What's the production date on your 528i? I noticed that you have the Dynamic digital instrument cluster from the 7/6 series. Is that a singapore only thing or should we expect that across the 5 series model line

Here's a more 'normal' Cimmamon shot (the bottom one you can make out the "///M" Sills - and one with the 6WB - Check Engine Light on because engine wasn't started.

Thanks. Yeah, it's about $4200 to put the M Sport suspension on the car, although there are other options. BMW has handled this poorly. They knew the 704 was coming and didn't have the integrity to inform the dealers to give customers the option to reorder. It's not the end of the world, but I doubt I'll own another BMW after this one. Not that they care.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but question on the 704 suspension. Is it not included in the xDrive models? My (new to me) 2014 535i xdrive has an 11/2013 build date and does not have 704. Thank you!

No, 704 was never included in xDrives, even if it had M-Sport. The only xDrive suspension upgrade is the DHP (Dynamic Handling Package).
