I have a need for a daily driver to accommodate on occasion more than 2 people. I also have a need for speed. To put all of this in one car is a tough order. The 550i has exceeded my expectations.It has unbelievable handling on curvy roads, and an engine that can do much more than I can. The acceleration is as exhilerating as my M3,and better than any Mercedes I have owned. The storage inside the car could be improved as well as the perenially poor design of the cup holders; but these drawbacks are nothing compared to the driving experience available. I owned a 650i previously and thought to "downsize". Interestingly, I think the 550i handles much more nimbly than its coupe counterpart. It is a serious drivers car that can double as a family car when needed.
