6 months ago I traded in my 13 passat TDI for a CPO 535D M SPORT.

So far loving the idea of still driving a diesel but with the added bonus of tons of torque compared to the 2.0L.

I even occasionally use the turn signals as a tribute to my VW roots, even though owning a BMW exempts me from their use.

HA!

I'm almost at 3 months with my 535D M Sport and totally echoing your post... If I would have know about this BMW blinker law I would have purchased one much sooner!

With the tune this car is a monster off the line and averaging low 30s with mostly just commuting to and from work on regular roads and quite a bit of rush hour traffic.

Things I like the most about the car..
Adaptive Headlights.... very bright and intuitive
Power
Handling
Heads Up Display
HUGE display screen with tons of options
Interior lighting.. warm glow lights from the door trim.. to the dashboard lighting turning from white at daytime to red at nighttime.
Power closing trunk
Throaty exhaust sound at full throttle.. it almost sounds like a V8

Things I dislike..
The armrest located on the door is just a smidge too narrow.. but I've finally gotten used to it. I was spoiled with the large armrest on the E320.
Sometimes I feel like the A-pillar is too wide and feel like I need to look around the right side A-pillar when making a left hand turn, in case theres a car coming I don't see.

You can get an after market warranty from anyone in the business. If you know someone, ask them. That is your best deal.

Love wagons, but steer clear of x-drive. These will start dropping in value considerably in next year or two, just like the 335d & e70 x5d have.

One guru here says if you change the lubricant in the transfer case every 20K miles it'll do fine. I think it's listed as a "lifetime" fill. People don't like to change it as the gear oil is about $90/liter, but it doesn't take much. 6 oz or something like that.

Depends on where you live:


Here, the only xDrive-only wagon is the 335d.
