Bad deal? Not necessarily. It ALL depends on the loan details: 1) Amount financed, 2) term, and 3) APR.

I just posted this elsewhere, but maybe you'll find it important as you pro/con the 535 and 550 (ps, I love our 'new' 535d, 39mph so far!)

Bumping from the dead, as I'm back on this forum because we picked up a 14' 535d. . .

Yes, yes, I agree with all you've said. I was actually quite impressed with the output given many runs in my twin turbo 300ZX. The formula also puts my X5M at 561HP, also not bad! Now. . . what might...

That formula is ok for ballpark, but if you're talking about ~50rwhp, I don't trust it given the amount of error. DA, wind, launch, grip, etc., all vary enough to overpower a 10% error, and in my...
