In most cases, Audi's S model should be evenly matched to BMW's biggest engined non-M car in each series, while the RS model should be compared to the M cars. In this case, the S6 should be...

If you are going to keep the 550i and the 997.2 Carrera S is too harsh, then a 981 Cayman S with the standard exhaust and PASM would be a great second car.

This is very true. While I don't have a 911, I feel the exact same way about my 981 Boxster S. There is no way I would keep that as my only car. I seem to have a love hate relationship with it on a...

Agreed. One factor to note is that all Panamera S models up to 2013 had a naturally aspirated V8, while the 2014 model and forward have a V6 TT. If the OP is interest in a Panamera and thinking of...

If you are looking for a better handling car, while keeping some of the comfort attributes, how about a slightly used Panamera GTS? It's just as fast as a stock 550i, but much better in the handling...

Since you are not having any problems, and BMW will cover the N63 CCP once even if you are out of warranty, it might not be a bad idea to wait until the symtoms show up. By doing so, it gives you...

This may very well be true in the near future. Historically, I think the I6 5 series generally held its value better than the V8 version anyways, and this CCP will not help the situation. I just...

Thank you for your help! The GL550 is a one of the smoothest and quietest cars I have driven. It is also pretty fast for a 5500 lbs vehicle. Perfect car for a long road trip.
