I would agree. The gen 5 camaro (and gen 5 mustang) interiors left a LOT to be desired. The 2015 Camaro interior was absolutely one of the worst I have seen since the 90s. The 2016 Camaro interior...

Looking for my first BMW....used 335i vs new 340i

If you want something nicer than your standard Chevy, look at the Chevy SS (the sedan, not the Camaro). You can get a beast that will compare nicely with a 550, can get auto or manual, and if what...

Rogue,

I suspect it might be the turbo's more than anything. I notice that when I am working the turbos heavily, I burn a LOT of oil quickly.

additional info. I am looking for 19 inch wheels for 245/40/R19 tires.

The wheels you mention are not available in a 19 inch size. Thank you for the suggestion though.

if you have a 2011 550i, you do not have the N63tu engine, you have the N63 engine unless you replaced it yourself. The N63tu was new to BMW in MY 2013 and was not put in the 5 series until MY 2014.
