2008 BMW 5 Series 550i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6M)

Review

This is an unbelievable car. I test drove the 535 with the twin turbo, but it's no match for the smoothness and sheer grunt of the V8. I had a Mustang GT before this and this is faster, smoother and more fun. Mine is optioned to the max, with HD radio, Satellite radio, HUD, sport package, cold weather package, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, Nav and so on. The 19 inch wheels look very cool! I also have the sport transmission, with paddle wheel shifters. So far, I have not used these that much. All in all a great car, that I highly recommend.

Favorite Features

IPOD integration is excellent, as is the HD radio, although it seems to echo sometimes. I'm not sure why. I love the bluetooth simplicity. The iDrive is not as awful as professional critics would have you believe.

Suggested Improvements

Gosh, it would be amazing to get this performance and be able to get 3 plus mpg!
