i have one in scotland - traded in my 525D F11 - its a better handling car than the first one simply more balanced and turns in and out of corners without the hippo wallowing the last one use to do- the cockpit is unbelieveable - every toy you could imagine - from a driving point of view I use a P-Tronic tune box to make it gruntier from down low - simply a great car - as a 520D tho i miss the extra power I had in the 525 (I tihnk the 525 is about 60kg heavier with a massive turbo compared to the 520D) plus don't believe for one second the economy is any better - it isnt. In a bid to save weight they have done away with lots of things including the heavy stop you every time brakes - the new brakes - lots of fade v early on - anyone else experienced this?
