- THE POWER,POWER,POWER!!! Man, this thing is fast!
- Pretty expensive but well worth it.
This car is so amazing that I can't wait to drive it each day. My lease just expired on my 530i which was a great car too, but this one just blows the 530i away! It's taken a while for the new body style to grow on me but it looks fantastic in silver/gray. The top of the line stereo system is top notch, and please, do yourself a favor and get the sports package. The handling is superb. But of course it all comes down to the power. The 550i makes the 530i seem like a Kia. That's what an extra 135 horses can do for you. Now when one of those pesky Mustangs or Cameros pulls up to a light i just have to give them a taste and they usually back off. If they don't I wave bye bye to them in my rear view mirror. AWESOME!!...read morehide

- This is the best car for the money,
Buy one, Buy one ,Buy one. Get the v-8 and live life great!! The difference in cost between the 6 and 8 is well worth the money.

- Everything about it.
This beats Lexus, Infiniti, and Acura by far. Great car. Go up to the dealership and testdrive.

- Ride Quality, Acceleration, interior quality, i drive, sound system, you name it
- none worth mentioning
One of the best cars out there. A blast to drive, very fast, and corners like crazy. Active steering is a must. Criticism of the i drive totally overstated, after one or two hours you will come to master it. Logic 7 sound system is amazing. Japanese cars still not at the level of BMW.

- Technology leader, superb performance, high fun factor
- run flat tires a little rough
I traded my E46 M3 for this car and have to admit I don't miss it. The 550i is a perfect blend of performance, luxury and quality. The sport package and logic 7 sound system is a must have. The japanese have outstanding luxury cars, but they didn't excite me. My 350Z was tons of fun, but the quality and luxury were missing and the price reflects that. If you have the money,the BMW is worth every penny.
I test drove both the 545i and 550i and felt the 550i had noticeably more power. Not that the 545i isn't powerful enough, but the more ponies the bigger the thrill. JD Power predicts this sedan to have the best resale for the next 5 years and I would have to agree. BMW typically will change body styles every 6 years which will keep this one current til 2010....read morehide

- Handling, Styling (sinister-looking headlights), power...so much passing power
- Idrive can be slow, jerky cold starts, mileage--no effort to save gas...get yourself a raise.
Great car...all things considered, nothing better out for '06 available for under $100k.
Powerful start. This car corners like it's on rails, and stops on a dime. Good Premium Sound system...
