Rocket Ship Performance, Stellar Comfort

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


Just bought this car to replace my 2003 BMW 745Li. Got it with a short shift manual transmission, sport package and aero kit. The car is stellar in performance and handling - a breath of fresh air from my trusty 745. This is my eleventh BMW and is just as reliable if not better than the others. Brings back memories of my 1990 535i 5 speed. The comfort seats are very supportive and provide enough bolstering to encourage spirited driving

Best Features

Sport package, 6 speed short shift transmission, throaty exhaust sound, comfort..

Worst Features

larger gas tank please - 18.5 gallons seems small, would prefer 20-22 gallons.
