Nice Loaner!

I had my X3 in for service this week. The dealer was kind enough to give me a 2013 535 M-Sport as a loaner. It had 107 miles on it! I'm a 3-series and X3 driver, but I must say that the F10 5 series is very nice indeed. The car had M-Sport, Premium, Cold and Technology packages. The drive is excellent -- quiet, stable and plenty of available power from the N55 engine. Those of you that own these cars are fortunate!

I'm still very glad to get my X3 back, but we'll certainly take a hard look at the 5 series when it comes time for a new sedan. Perhaps that was my dealer's evil plan all along?

Anyway, nice car!

Glad you liked it. I was in market for a 3 series and ended up getting a 5 series

I had an 3 series in for a clutch repair for a couple of days. Now I am on my second f10. Give an extended trail and develop the want. Good sales pitch.

I was also contemplating the new F31 3-series wagon, after 6-years with an E91 330d wagon, but having tried a couple of 5-series sedans was tempted to get back into a 5-series.

Took the plunge and have an F11 535i M-sport wagon. Brilliant car with all the goodies, Adaptive Drive, HUD, Sport AT, Panoramic roof, etc., etc. So pleased I moved back to a 5-series, very refined drive, and IMO much more mature.

That's great! We can't even get the F11 here in the States -- they offer us the GT instead.

The F11 looks just beautiful. Maybe someday we'll be able to get these 5-series wagons again. BMW USA, are you listening?
