Yea, the car is a squatter.

Hey, I am picking up f15 diesel next month. How do you like yours. What are the specs?
I got Msport, carbon black, terra dakota with 21" wheels.

My wife LOVES hers - it replaced a '11 diesel X5; new one is much more refined, much more luxurious inside, faster, quieter, looks great.

Ours is space gray, ivory/black inside (with gorgeous contrast stitching), M-sport, premium, cold, driver assistance plus, 20" 469M wheels, 3rd row, multi contour seats, harmon kardon. It's a great vehicle - no complaints, from her.

For me, just like on the '14 F10s, they did something where the front doesn't angle up as much as it used to, so it's not as comfortable as her '11, or as my '09 e60 m5, which had the best seats I've ever sat in.

You'll love it - no question.

Dude! Thank you for saying that! The Comfort Seats in the E60 M5 were the best seats I've ever sat in too!! I could never find a person who agreed with me on that. I loved those seats and was sorely disappointed when BMW decided not to have a different seat option for pretty much all of the F Series M cars.

I agree. The E60 seats were the best. The 2013 F10 seats are not as good, and the 2014 seats got a little worse (I swear the front of the seat lost some incline).

Yes, it did, and so did the F15 X5 vs the E70 X5, both with multi contour seat option. Drives me crazy.

It just happened with the ivory/black combo - must just be something they do. I had no idea.

The older seats used to allow for a bigger angle of the seat cushion - I like the front part of the cushion to be higher than the back part to a greater degree than allowed by the newer seats. Older ones had greater range.
