More than expected

2006 BMW 5 Series 550i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6M)
This is, without question, the best 4 door sports car on the market. It is not too big like the 7 series or S class and it moves like the wind. It is a pleasure to drive everyday. Powerful but well mannered. The iDrive gets a bad rap, it is not complicated, nor do you have to use it often once you have things set to your liking. Surprisingly, the hwy mileage has been 26-27 mpgs, fairly close to my 325.
360 hp is by far my favorite feature.
All the BMWs I have owned have the worst cup holders. The Germans have to get over the idea that we stop at Starbucks on our way to work--even in the Ultimate Driving Machine.
