BMW 550i review
By DH on
2009 BMW 5 Series 550i 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6M)
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.
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.
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.
