Yes, see link below, on a stock 328i, they get 5.4 secs 0-60 mph time

Of course 528i is about 400 lbs heavier (but the lightest among 5-series), so 6 secs is reasonable.
Here are the Weights of different xDrive models:
328i: 3627 lbs
528i: 4001 lbs
535i: 4233 lbs
550i: 4519 lbs

I think now you can just set the default mode from the iDrive menu, I need to confirm it though.

Yeah, you're right, actually that easy, just push that button then the Auto Start-Stop is off.

Very nice!

So the Premium Package is $2600 - and all you get is a power liftgate, comfort access, and 1 year of satellite radio?

They're actually great cars, I took the active hybrid one out for a drive, and I was pretty impressed.

Some "necessary" mods:





Small engine, plenty of space in the engine bay



Not so stealth with the bright blue light:



Saw this funny sticker under the hood



New OEM filter vs aFe filter:



Filter installed:



I had to move the aFe module to top of my air box from the side (see pic #4) because it fell to my engine bay, good thing it still works fine and didn't mess up anything!
