I also just got out of my '11 550xi M-sport and into a new '14 550xi M-sport. Love the car! Many new and good tweaks made to the car. The power is awesome.

Easier said than done. From what I understand, X-drive without dynamic drive does not have the 704 sport suspension: it only comes on the rear wheel drive, which is pretty much not available in the...

Yes, the 550 xi M-sport is a little boring

It's a great car...but it's not like my 2008 650i sport, which is gone. the 500xi is too big, too heavy, and not nimble enough. I'm not not blaming BMW: this is a small "7" and not the 5 of old. I...
