Best Car Ever Owned

by Aji A from Dallas TX on Thu Nov 09 2017

This is the car I was looking for daily usability as well as power when needed, without waking up the neighborhood in early AM hours. A Very nicely balanced car for my taste.

Ideal sleeper

by Peter from Iowa on Sat Dec 02 2017

Wanted a factory based high performance vehicle that won’t draw high attention while picking up your kids from school in comfort mode. Didn’t want to be that guy/parent. With a flip of a switch you can unleash the full v8 twin turbo potential when you want it. You can immediately immerse yourself in throaty / but partially synthesized performance sound and immediate pedal response. As an owner of M6, this will be preferred daily commuter.

Subtleness incarnate

by Daniel from Linkoping, SWEDEN on Wed Dec 06 2017

Possibly most value for money in its class, especially equipped with the Ultimate Edition package. Both a tremendously clever and discreet car, revealing itself only to informed viewers knowing what to look for. (Or to listen for.)

Unbelievable!!!

by VortexRotor from Jupiter on Mon Aug 27 2018

Love it. I have had 2 M5's in the past and wanted the performance but not the $$$ of the M5 just for everyday driving. The M550i fit the bill in SPADES! Great performance for the money compared to the M5.

Needed new Motor at 4340 miles

by BP on Thu Aug 09 2018

This was an awesome car until I recieved the news that my 2018 M550 with 4,340 miles on it needed a new motor as the factory one had such damage and needed replacement . I custom ordered this auto that had a 90k msrp. It was broken in by the book and was babied and still this happened. What the best part was BMW will only replace it with a remanufactured motor destroying resale value when you go to sell it. So if you are considering this auto I would suggest that you review some of the BMW forms and then only lease the auto and wouldn?t buy it like I did. The sad part is BMW really does have a great car here. The car is super fast and at the same time rides like it is on air. Just to bad when issues like this come up on a new car they feel it is acceptable to put a remanufactured motor in destroying resale values.

Extremely satisfied with my car

by Victor G. from Richmond, VA on Tue Apr 24 2018

It is reliable, easy drive, excellent in turns and amazing power. The design is a perfect balance between power, fun and elegance. I wished they had more variety in colors but the dark gray still awesome

Great car - don't get it with 20inch rims

by Chris from Texas on Mon Jul 23 2018

The car has so many great qualities - but the dealer ordered it with 20 inch low profile tires - and they are a disaster - I have had three critical sidewall breakdowns in the tires in 7 months of ownership. Cost is over $500 each and the time loss is silly. Disappointing because the car is so good in so many other ways.
