    “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
    “And most important, have the courage to follow your heart & intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

    F10 520i, the STD is almost quite complete , 4 sport mode ( suspension changes as mode chg), paddle shift, auto headlight , ya also sunroof ( seem STD for pi). And was told 520 and 528 is same engine but 528 is tuneup version to more hp . Also reverse camera with parking help, auto brake H which enable u during traffic stop to just step on the brake once , don't need to keep pressing on brake , once green just tap on acc to go. That all I gather for PI 520i. Hope it helps.

    I m thinking 529i as well , if can push price below 200k will be good. PI SG vechicle is promo on 523i slightly below 200k but this got no sport mode.

    Was a bit rush didn't chk the rest only this chk with this PI. They give 7 yrs wtry or 200000km

    Hope this helps

    cheers
    I agree with ac323...

    520i is a great car to mod.... already have tune from Kelleners go up to 220bhp. I would go PI if I choose the turbo 4 pots F10.

    F10 520 to tune up is a good choice. I'll go this route too.
