2009 BMW 5 Series Sedan 550i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6M)


Review

this is our 3rd bmw previously owned an 07 convertible & 07 7series. there is alot to luv and enjoy about this car. comfort, ride, luxury all in one package. standouts are the sports mode/pkg/kit & signature silver color. hd radio stands out immediately more car companies should offer it.


Best Features

sports package/kit, hd $ xm radio, comfort and handling without compromising luxury. navi that can be programmed while the car is moving. very smart & user friendly bluetooth. angel eye lights. bamboo anthracite wood trim. multi-contour seat/positions.


Worst Features

still only one real standout issue - idrive system needs complete overall as it seems to be over engineered. have touch screen capabilities. petal response is much better in sport mode without it petal response hesitates during launch. the cruise control stalk and cup holder are poorly placed.

Review

Traded in my E46 M3 after 6 years. Purchased a white 550i with Sport & Cold Weather packages & lots of other goodies. The car looks fabulous; the LED side & rear lights and Angel Eye DRLs make the car unique and very attractive. The acceleration, handling and fuel economy are comparable to my old M3 but without the "nervousness". I've never purchased a car that gave me the satisfaction of ownership that I receive from my 550i. The whole automobile is a work of art, from the anthracite tailpipes to the black front air intake; a study in black and white. The Sport Package makes the current 550i better and more modern looking than the 2010 version.


Best Features

Fit & finish, M Aerodynamic kit, iDrive, LED tail & side lights, 19" wheels, dual black tail pipes, comfort access, satellite radio, bamboo anthracite wood trim, Logic 7 sound system, head-up display, Angel Eyes, pull-away power from a stop light, handling and overall superb looks.


Worst Features

The cruise control stalk can get in the way while attempting to engage the turn signal during a turn. Making it about an inch shorter should do the trick. Develop side curb sensors; curb rash is ever a danger with large wheels.
