    F10 door corrosion

    That's ridiculous that they won't sort for you. Totally must depend on which dealer you go to. Mine has 149k and full bmw history and was passed for the work in 3 days on all doors. Try another dealer?

    I have only had it out once by accident and that was in the early winter last year and a patch of black ice I think. Don't get me wrong, I think the rwd f10 is extremely planted and handles beautifully. It does require a good bit of provocative hooliganism to get the back end out. The xdrive g30 just feels more planted and I could not provoke a slide last night under the same conditions.

    Possibly slightly less fun but much more planted. Childish I know but I quite enjoy kicking the ass out of mine on wet roundabouts and the like. I took this one out for a short blast last night with very slippy roads (light rain after a dry day) and try as I might the back end would not go out and it sustained some serious sideways force in the corners on some of the a roads near me.

    Yep. Agreement I had to sign had price for this one of 53k. Not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. Christ it's quick though. My first drive of an xdrive car as well and the handling is epic.

    Prob just the way photo is taken. Only 1500 miles.

    The only thing they asked to see was the service history. Mine has full BMW one. May have been more of an issue without this.

    Its a 61 plate so late 2011 but yes as just said 12 year anti corrosion warranty. They took it in without any fuss as well. Impressed so far really.

    I'm only drooling as I know it's temporary! I know I would love one of these but the fuel costs would not make me a happy chap!

    Mate of mine has a 335d xdrive that is now remapped to over 400bhp. Awesome engine even without a remap. I would say though that this 540i feels a good bit faster than that when it was standard and not a million miles away from it remapped. A 7k redline also helps!

    Neither I don't think. They adjust in sports mode which is quite novel. I'll try later and report back.

    Oh I am.
  15. So my f10 530d has corrosion on every door. Repair been approved under warranty so it went in on Thursday. Like most of us on here, I love my car and it's gorgeous to drive. However, given the courtesy car I have been given, I am happy for them to keep it for a while. Rapid is not the word!
