New to the 5 series, some pics.

Not my first post or my first BMW, in fact it's my fifth in as many years lol . I haven't quite gotten every series yet, but I'm close! This is my first 5 series and I really like it. There are a few things that bother me, like small cup holders and no BT music audio, like wtf...

I have a few plans for it, a tune(have not decided which yet), wheels and maybe a drop, but im keeping it simple. Here are some pics of all my previous BMWs and the current Graphite Metallic 535.

First was this 2011 128i totally OEM


Next was a 2011 Special Ediiton Jerez Black 335. MPPK, JB4, MPE BMS intake


Then a 2014 X1 35i Dinan stage 2, bms intake and 19x9/10 Work wheels. Sold it before I could lower it.


Just sold this 2015 X5, totally OEM other than the grills


Lastly the DGM 535


If anyone can tell me the best way to listen to music, that would be great I hate not having BT.

Welcome and congratulations on the new car. The cup holders are "small" compared to other car but still work. Here is a link to an update
https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...e/51169277262/ and the related thread http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1383636

As for music, my Tahoe doesn't have Bluetooth so I use the AUX cord and/or I have a Bluetooth converter using the aux. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Mpow-Bluetoot...128E4H9XATY14T

Thanks for that, but I dont think you can control it from the steering wheel, can you? Is there no coding that can fix this?

Thanks man. The only problem is that I have a Lexus LS430 and I dont know which one to mod first lol it's my family car though, so it's gotta be pretty mild.

Personally, I would Mod the BMW and just do light mods on the Lexus.

Well I'm into VIP, so light mods dont exist on the Lexus lol for the 5, I'm thinking some sort of tune, I'm hearing bootmod3 is the way to go, but I know nothing about it. Maybe a slight drop and a nice set of wheels. I ordered dual slat gloss black grills already and I'm going to tint it as well, I'm thinking that's where I'm going to leave it.
