I looked at the 6GC last week at the end of my E60 550I lease. I have to agree that the car did not look as good in person as the pictures. I think it is the area behind the back doors that gives...

I have a 2012 Cayenne S and it is a nice ride & it gets 17-18MPG in the city. The transmission is much better than my 2010 550I. The Cayenne reminds me of a taller 911. I had an 08 550I and I...

What about transmission service? I have a plan to change my transmission fluid at 40K or 3 years.

Thank you. I have a 2010 550I in Carbon Black and the M package and it is a nice color. I am going to have to take a test drive in the X3. . .

Indeed. I have a '10 550I with the M pkg and it is very nice. I was going to get a MT, but was talked out of it by my sales person. I would say go with the 2010. Good luck with the MT.

I would agree with your view that the sport package is a much better look. I really like my 2010 550I with the Sport package, which is a much better 5 than my 07 550I.

I had an 07 550I with the Sport Package (pre M) and have a 2010 550I with the M package. The ride is much improved with the M package. I would go with the M package if you can get it. . .

The M package is well worth it. I had considered a MT, but I am very pleased with the SAT. The SAT is much better over the Sports AT on my 07 550I.

New 550I

Just returned from the Performance Center in SC. That was a real blast. I was really amazed over how the 550 and the M5 could move around the track. The car is a blast, although it is a bit cruel...

I would try Athens BMW, which is a bit north of you. I am not sure about central or south GA.

Good luck,

Walking out on a deal

Price

I think that price is about average for BMW dealers. There are two 05 ZHP's that I have seen on this board-one in CA going for $33,500 and one in Chicago going for $27,500. Good...

I went from an 03 330I ZHP to an 07 550I and I have no regrets. The ZHP was fun, but the lack of low end torque had me looking for an upgrade. The back seat and finish in the five are much better. ...

550 to 335

Tough one. I went from a 330I ZHP to an 07 550I. The 3 series is a different ride, more of a driver's car to me. The 550I is a smoother ride, especially at a higher speed. I would go for it since...
