So, the 740 is in for an extended service visit. They picked it up and left me with a 2016 528i. I have to say, i am impressed. That 4 banger has some juice. 240 HP and it feels like it all hits you in the lower RPMs. It's smoother than i expected, as well. I told my wife that had i known the 5 series would be so much fun, i would have considered it. Probably with the inline 6, though. One problem, though. Not enough storage.
