0-60 times?

Anybody have any idea what the 0-60 times on this new 4.4L twin turbo will give the 550i? I speculate it will be less than 5 sec. Right now, they claim the 535i does it in 5.6. I bet with the...

squeaking

My 08 535i creaks like an old wooden ship when I start & stop. It is so painful on an otherwise phenomanl car.

I just got my 535i. It is two weeks old. It squeaks like an old ship! It's the most ridiculous thing on a $55,000 car! I start & stop, and if I turn up a hill, it's squeaking like an old wodden ship...

How do I find this fix? I think my 535i squeaks like an old house. It's unbelievable! It's only 2 weeks old, and it is like an old ship at sea every time I start & stop!!

new 550

I agree that buying a car is a very emotional decision. It's not simply the numbers, or else we'd all be driving priuses. But the 550i--if you buy one now--will be obsolete. How about leasing a...

dark poplar

Thanks. I was debating for the longest time light or dark poplar. Do you have any pictures of the dark poplar in your car?

I agree that Mercedes Benz do not have the prestige that they used to. They were *the* premium brand, probably 20 years ago, but about the time they merged with Chrystler, their quality declined...

With regards to "you can't afford it," argument of 550i vs. 535i, I agree that that may not be the best way to look at the 550i vs 535i argument. Personally, I can *easily* afford an M5, 911 turbo,...

550i obsolete next year?

I agree with you entirely. The 550i's engine will probably be replaced by the twin turbo 4.4liter V8 with 400hp. This will probably take the 550i 0-60 in 4.9 sec. I think that BMW moves every year...

Thanks for that post. I agree that the 550i is really a much better looking car. It looks great, and I do secretly want a 550i (not so secret now). But I just can't justify that bad gas mileage and...
