I went through a lot of oil in my 2011 550. I wonder if the N63 recall fixes this common problem?

Now that I have a Costco station right near me, I've been going there exclusively. I get premium. It was only 2.05 earlier this week.

Same here. With a $77k MSRP. Multiple securities and ED really help things out a lot.

It really is meant to be a 550 competitor +1. A little more horsepower, naturally aspirated, and lighter. With an upgraded suspension, it should be a nice performer. Looks wise, it won't win any...

So the consensus is that this doesn't apply to the N63TU? I had the problem on my 2011 with the N63, but the work they did fixed it for the remaining time I had it.

On the F10, if you want to the 704 suspension, you must get RWD. The RWD M Sport with 704 also sits a little lower. AWD comes with the crappy GoodYear LS2 tires.

Whether you have RWD or AWD, if...
