I bought my 08 550i for $22k with 55k miles a couple months ago sight unseen. I had driven enough of them to know what to look out for, and the photos were thorough enough to show no obvious issues....

I had 12 cars before I graduated high school and roughly 20 cars in the last couple decades, so I've really experienced a lot of different vehicles, including Honda Prelude and Accord.

I've had a 330xi, 540i and now 550i. I live in Utah and go to Wyoming a lot (family lives there). Growing up in Wy, I tend to like driving in bad weather. I loved my 330xi. BMW did such a good job...

That's pretty much what I'm feeling. Maybe it's just that snow tires are so soft they're peeling out too easy.

I would agree, but it's pretty consistent, regardless of where I am. This includes some areas where street sweepers have been through. My thought is that maybe the tires have so much softness and...

Peeling out at 55mph???

So when I floor it (either from the start or at speed), my abs seems to come on. The light flashes like it does when it's active. It stops flashing when I let up on the gas a bit.
As much as I...

Good to know. I just barely bought the car, so I haven't known it to be any different. I'll take a look at the battery and maybe get a replacement.

Oh, and thanks for the input!

Slow electronics?

Hi all,
My 2008 550i with Nav seems to have a really annoying delay with its electronics. For example, when I push the memory buttons, there is usually a 5-10 sec delay before it does what it's...

The 2008+ aren't quite so bad looking, but yeah, I have to admit they are still not nearly as attractive as the e39.
As for mileage, I think you may be surprised. If you go to fueleconomy.gov, you...

As my username suggests, I started my BMW life with an e46 330xi. I then owned an e39 540i and now have an e60 550i.
Going from the e46 to an e39 was astonishing. I love(d) all of these cars, but...

DICE MediaBridge or iPod Connector?
