2006 BMW 5 Series 550i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6M)

Review

I purchased a CPO 06 550i 6 months ago with 46K miles. This car is amazing, it already has over 53K on it and there isn't one rattle, this car really has held up over the years. I drove a new 535i and could hardly tell the difference, so I decided to save $30K and buy it used. This car is such a joy to drive, it begs to be tossed around. Every seat is comfortable, and there is tons of cargo room. The only thing that bothers me is that I only average 9 mpg in the city driving normally, but much better than expected on the highway, about 25. You really need to watch the pot holes, I had to replace 2 tires at $500 a piece, don't get the sport package if you live in an area with bad roads!

Favorite Features

brown leather, power, transmission, handeling, parking sensors, i-drive, heated steering wheel, auto wipers

Suggested Improvements

xdrive available with the V8, better city mpg, rear fog light would be good to have in bad weather. This car is pretty close to perfect!
