Speaking of pre-historic, does anyone know if F32 will get LED lights at the back? I'm suspect BMW will go LED on the F30s for next year model (about 10 years behind everyone else). So will the F32 have LEDs?
The BMW Z4 is not having great success because it didn't offer a proper mechanical handbrake

BMW made the right choice for the 3/4 series coupe/convertible by keeping the traditional handbrake...

5 series is based on the 7 chassis, therefore electric parkbrake... sadly for the M5...

i agree with you on the LED, seems like BMW is lagging everyone on the electronic department, HUD existed on several other car manufacturers for more than 7 years already... it's taking BMW at least a full generation of model car before they incorporate the same technology...
... The worse is that BMW is charging extra for those "premium" item...

Must be Mad as myself for willing to buy a brand new BMW...

ps: by the way, Autoblog has first pics of 4 series hard top convertible...
