I have an 08 w/ the 6MT. I sometimes feel a bit of lag when the A/C is on and I'm at low-er RPM. Drive it again w/ the A/C off and see if that's it.

Good luck:thumbup:

You may want to check to 3 series forums. Your engine is roughly the same as the 3 and I believe more 3 series owners tune and tweak their cars that 5 series owners. That being said I'm not too sure...

I've had my 550 for over 4 years, and in all that time I've had it serviced at SouthBayBMW.

Battery Replacement

I need to get a new battery for my 550. BMW wants to charge me $260 for the battery and another $175 for the installation. That seems like a lot of money for a battery to me. Does anyone know if I...
