The pre-bangle era E's 39,46,36,38 really did feel tank-like and strudy. I noticed models from the E60/90 had lighter doors and didn't deliver that reassuring thunk, F10 included. I also dislike...

black exhaust tips, why?

So, despite its faults (:)) I do love the look of the M-Sport 550i. On par with the E39 as one of the most handsome BMWs ever built.


I do however question the reasoning from an aesthetics point...

Looks great;)


In past cars, I find that non OEM grilles don't always align with precision.

At any rate, I ordered the matte grilles this weekend and looking forward to getting them installed.

Hi - great to see you here.

I always thought you had one of the cleanest E39s - sterling silver (if I recall) and those mpars. I think we exchanged a few pm's years ago.

I run 2.6 bar on all four in my 550 Msport. I have Michelin PSS in the same size as well.

I'm still experimenting as the tires are still new to me - will try F2.4/R2.6 next.

Meh. Still has signature merc elements that never agreed with me. The crossed air vents, the seat controls - merc interiors never look fresh and modern. Just not for me.

Masterpiece? Hardly.
