Ordered new F10 530dse

Just bought my new 5 series and should get it on the 11th May. It was sitting in the showroom of my local dealer. So spec was not exactly what i wanted but the deal was good.

530D SE, Space Grey, Black Dakota Leather
Sports Auto Transmission
Visibility Pack
Media pack professional
18 inch radial spoke alloys
Seat Heating
High gloss shadowline
Sun protection glass
Bluetooth audio connection

Drove a 523i with 20 inch alloys before i made the decision. Stay away from the 20 inch alloys, ride was bone jarring. Salesman even said do not go above 18 inch alloys with the SE.

Same at my dealer, they tried a set of 20" wheels on their 535i demo and after the first customer tried it and complained about the awful ride quality, had a senior sales guy try the car and he found the same. So the demo car is back on 19" and they have the "beware of 20" wheels" message.

Personally I found the 19" better than the 18" on their other car. The 19" gave a firmer but better feel, without the strange feedback of the 18" wheels.

BTW, enjoy the car and post your feedback.
