Ambient lighting is sooo much nicer with the nave screen off on a dark night. Very subtle and well done. Use the voice command and say 'display off'.

For better or worse, the 550 is also a turbo and has a hpfp. I would think it's as prone to the problem as the current 535. Let's hope we're all spared the hassle.

80% city driving. Quite a heavy foot although I'm no speed demon, if that makes sense. The acceleration is intoxicating.

16.3 MPG and am still breaking 'er in, not exceeding 4500 RPM or 100mph. The 550 is a beast and coming from a 6cyl VW Passat, it drinks quite a bit more petrol but is an absolute blast to drive. ...

I pulled pretty hard on them. The only thing that 'gives' is the headrest itself. If you manage, please let me know.
