2013 BMW 5 Series Sedan 550i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

After telling myself not to do another BMW since I hate turbocharging, I went and did it because of the lease deal. Also, the cars are getting to be soft while Mercedes offers sport versions of their cars and regular tires (no run flats). Why didn't I go MB? This is not a bad car. It is just boring to look at and boring to drive. The M sport package helps but the sport suspension tuning is still soft.


Best Features

Standard 550i features such as navigation, rear view camera, park distance control, hard drive for storing music, paddle shifters (car is an 8 speed sport auto).


Worst Features

Make some models like the 550 naturally aspirated. This car would be so much better with the V8 from the e39 M5 (2001-2003) or with the e92 M3 V8 (2008-now). The twin turbos do not provide linear power, so driving around town is awkward. Seats are not comfortable.
