Finally a proud owner of a fabulous MY2013 535d Touring

The moment I was looking for for so many months happened yesterday, when I got delivered a perfect 535d Touring M-Package Sophisto Gray II at BMW Welt.

The car spec and ordering details can be checked in this thread, but here's a brief rundown of the main options:
- M Sports Package with 19" 351M wheels
- Sophisto Gray II with Hexagon Aluminum trims, Shadow Line roof bars and Black Shadow Line exterior trims
- Comfort seats, black dakota leather, black anthracite roof lining
- Comfort package
- Innovation package
- Surround View
- Panoramic sunroof
- Adaptive Drive
- Sports automatic gearbox
- TPMS
- Pro Navigation (new version)
- Multifunctional instrument display
- HiFi Professional
- Tinted windows (aft B-pillar)

After having the car, I drove home for about 400 km and since I don't want to exceed the recommended break-in limits (3,000 rpm and/or 150 km/h) the max speed I achieved was 200 km/h. The car is rock steady and a joy to ride. I have absolutely no remarks whatsoever to make at this point!

Here are a few mementos from the day. I am sorry if I don't have many pictures of the car, but I was by myself and wanted to have my hands on the car, not on the phone!

I promise to add a few more shots in the future.

Considering that I have only driven for one day and just over 400 km, let's say it is living up to my expectations. The resolution of the display is very good, to the extent that you don't notice the pixels.
I find the different displays for the Sport/Comfort/Eco Pro to contribute a lot to the driving experience, and the magnifying option for the numbers in the velocimeter and the tachymeter that the needles are pointing towards is a nice feature too.

Congrats.

I have a car with MFID on order but I wonder, if you could help, if the MFID can be configured to display MPH or KMH. Thanks.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words! I will try to take a few pictures today in the sunset to try and make justice to the beauty of the car/color.

I see no reason why it shouldn't, considering that it is 100% digital. I will see today if you can configure the velocimeter units to mph via the iDrive settings and will let you know the results.

And here are a few more to add to yesterday's photos. I had to take these with the iPhone as I don't have my SLR camera with me. I will be adding more photos to the Sophisto Gray topic in the photos/media section in the future but since the car is still only two days "old" I am adding these here.

My girlfriend says it is "stupidly beautiful". And damn, isn't she right!



















It is a beauty, it drives beautifully!! Couldn't be happier.

And here is proof of what I said!

Speed in km/h:


Speed in mph:


You can change it in "Settings".

Overall I am VERY happy with the MFID!!

Thanks, remmib!

It is awesome and I have barely started to experience it. Compared to the F11's ride, my previous E60 530d felt like a fisherman's boat.
And without having yet used up one full tank, I am already impressed with how economical it is…

First, a big congrstulation. I will also get an M-Sport next time. Did you ever consider a 535i? I am allready planning my new F11 for next summer. But I cant decide between manual 535i or 535d.

Wait a minute, wait-a-minute!

Are you sure the max break in speed is 3000 rpm?

That sounds way too low. You risk getting a DLPIB ticket (driving like a pussy in a bimmer ) if you continue to limit at 3000 rpm.

Please, confirm!
