When I decided several months ago to move away from my E92 M3 due to a growing family, I decided on the 535i F10 "on paper". I really like the looks, features, and options available. I had it all spec'd out and was comfortable with the price. I was ready to buy. Then I went to drive it, and my experience was identical to yours. Bah, what a boat. Good for a 65 year old man looking to upgrade from his Buick or Caddy DTS.

I ultimately went with the AH3 M-sport, with the Dynamic Handling Package. I think it's the perfect combo of comfort as well as sportiness.
