I have fitted M Performance carbon interior and Genuine gloss black grills

Of all of the options Comfort Access is not really worth having given the issues around security and cars being stolen.
How are you finding keeping that external colour clean (I have the same on my current car), and swirl mark free? I have done well, until BMW one day decided to wash it with what can only be presumed to be fine sand paper....it came back to me looking like a driving hologram. So annoying.

Comfort access, my thoughts are the same, I have been trying to seek cars without it, but not sure if I should be that worried.

Your LED lights are they the ones known as BMW ICON LEDs? Those do look pretty hot and pretty rare from what I can gather.

And finally how hard was it to change (and how costly) your interior trim, as often a used car comes with trim you dont like but it would be a shame to rule a good car out for that reason.

I am pretty OCD with washing it so its been OK, its a pain with stone chips especially at the bottom of the front wings as the tyres are wide, ideally need to find something to cover them with, any ideas?

The LEDs are the upgraded ones from the Xenons their is only one option, I think the Icon LEDs are on the 3/4 series

The interior trim is very easy to take out but to get the carbon its expensive, I paid £1800 from BMW and it should be about £2500

Comfort Access is OK but if your car is left on a drive at night then maybe an idea to put your key in faraday bag (plenty on ebay)

You mentioned that you wanted soft close doors and heated rear seats, they are both very rare options and I would say not worth it at all.

As mentioned Comp Pack and M Multifunction seats are the top 2 options as well as sun protection glass for the looks

Yeah i can live without soft close...but i think rear heated seats would be very welcome for the winter months when i have adults in the back and not child seats (doesn't happen that often but still a nice feature on the front, would love it for the rear too)

About the paint chips, not sure what to suggest, but do recall reading on a thread once that people spot touch it with some product, cant help but feel the finish will be rubbish though. I'd wait to let it get really bad before worrying. Will see if I can find the info again.

Do all F10 M5 have ambient interior lighting? What exactly is that anyway?

You will be really lucky to find a car with heated rear seats, personally I think their are lots of better cars out there that won't have this option, it's not as though we live in Syberia.

Ambient lighting is the soft light under the door tops and also shines down from the rear view mirror onto the centre console, google it.

Fair enough comment bout the rear heated seats, shouldn't overlook a good car just due to the absence of that option but i have seen a few which had it AND had the other things. Granted its not that often, but seeing as I am not in a huge rush, I could just get lucky

The ambient light stuff will google it indeed, but in my current basic F10 I quite like the internal orangey glow night lighting and its probably not even the ambient stuff, so things can only get better.

sarjoo as per your spec in post 15, there were 33 UK cars (all LCI as Comp Pack came at LCI) with all the options you have specified (out of 454 UK Comp Pack cars)

If we ignore the Jahre, there are 25:

9 x 2013, 11 x 2014, 3 x 2015 and 2 x 2016

Thanks for the analysis! How did u find that out, as the search filters don't allow specifying all the options? So aside from opening each vehicle there is no real way of knowing what it has. (Sometimes also the way the car has been added on to the site is inaccurate, the dealer not loading all options e.g. u want comfort seats but they've not marked that against the car, as far as the filters are concerned, yet when you open other cars that didnt have said option it is there)

b21Playa thanks for the heads up, I have actually seen your advert/post on this forum, and its certainly a very very lovely looking car, but sadly the mileage is higher than I want to go, I'm am ideally aiming for mileage in the region of 30-40k at the most. If things change will shout, glwts though. Plus i have a 520D ED model to shift also.

Won't you miss her when she is gone, all that train-like power, and all rounder capabilities, gonna be hard to replace!
