Smile I'm back in a BMW...just picked this up | some PICS

This was about 6 months ago:




This is today:




Just picked up a brand new 2013 528i xDrive M-Sport for my daily driver.
This car is perfect for daily, can go 0-60mph in less than 6 secs, averaging 27 mpg and all-wheel drive too.






Pretty much loaded:




Auto Start-Stop when brake pedal is pressed....just like Prius




You can check facebook from the Nav screen!




Some interior detail pics:

Nice!

My step-father has one pretty much identical to yours but his is the 35i and he has the upgraded shift/iDrive knob. The AW 5er M-Sports are definitely one of the best looking cars on the road.

love everything about it! nice color combo. i would get bmw to disable the start stop though by default. i hated that on the f30 28i, it was so rough it shook the whole car on start again with a slight delay in acceleration

You can disable it with a button near the steering wheel. My mom just got a white 528 xdrive too but hers isn't the M sport. Beautiful car(s)!

correct, but you need to press it every time you start the car again. bmw is coding it to be off by default now due to complaints.

Yeah that feature is terrible on a daily basis. Ours is getting coded to be off all of the time as well. Sweet ride! Congrats!
