Love My 5GT!
By Neil on


2010 BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 550i 4dr Hatchback (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)


I opted for the European Delivery option and collected my new 550i GT in April 2010. The pics don't do it justice -- this car is a beauty. With the big twin turbo V8 this was fun to drive in Europe. We hit 130 on the Autobahn (OK, we were not trying hard enough). Drove through Liechtenstein through the Alps into Italy and across highway 10 along the Med -- this was a James Bond drive with windy roads in and out of tunnels. Super cool! The car was great throughout the trip. I loaded this baby with options. The heads-up display is fantastic especially when trying to navigate unfamiliar territory -- it makes a wrong turn much less likely. The new iDrive is way better than before too.

Best Features

Heads-up display, twin turbo V8, sport package lets you choose comfort mode for long highway drives or sport mode when playing James Bond. I think the doubters will come around on the styling. Perfect car for me -- a fast 5er with extra rear seat and cargo room.

Worst Features

iDrive should be replaced with a touch screen. Enough already!
