Not a BMW anymore
By bummer5 on


2011 BMW 5 Series 550i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)


I have an '02 530i, love it.
Purchased a 550ix because I love BMW....used to love BMW.
This car drives like a Buick.
Even sport mode floats on the road.
The seats are awful and the engine sounds like a 4 cylinder Honda.
I can't believe BMW would even put this out!
I finally gave the car to my wife and went back to my '02 530i.
Now that BMW is no longer "BMW", what do I buy?!
So disappointed!
Shame on you BMW!
