I took my air compressor with me just in case, and I am glad I did. It was at 30 psi instead of 60. I forgot to do it when we got the car in October. :eek:

Are we sure that those numbers are complete? It seems that a total of 40 550i units in 2009 with a MT would be a little low. Not that I'm complaining as we have one of them, but it still seems low.

I had some hesitation when getting our 2009 550i since we get a fair amount of snow. I contemplated getting a dedicated set of snow tires/rims, but ended up just getting a set of Continental DWS's. ...
