    How's engine response compared to the V10?

    I'm going to bring up stuff I notice with the new cars. I think the interior quality of the E60 and E90 was better. Might not look as nice as it does now, but was more sturdy. I can't stand the new steering wheels because they don't fit my hands. There isn't enough surface area for my palm at the 9 and 3 positions.

    The DCT is indeed a big upgrade over the old SMG though. It shifts very fast and at your desire.

    Enjoy the car!

    Hard to say, but I think the V8 is more responsive. The dynos I've seen are more linear. More torque throughout, with the V10 there was a dip in the torque.

    Congrats, that's very pretty indeed!

    The X6 M I switched to recently has the Donnington Grey exterior/Merino Red interior ... and I was really skeptical about the red until I actually sat in the thing. Since then it's really grown on me. Doing it again I'd probably go with a darker grey exterior, but that blue on yours is gorgeous (would clash horribly with a red interior though!).

    I have that on mine as well and have been pleasantly surprised by how it is for a factory install. I'm not sure about things like the center speaker going up and down when you turn it on (and sometimes it'll go up and down on it's own when you fire the car up ... for no apparent reason). Seems to be at least on par with the one installed in my last fun car.
