Are we sure that those numbers are complete? It seems that a total of 40 550i units in 2009 with a MT would be a little low. Not that I'm complaining as we have one of them, but it still seems low.

I had some hesitation when getting our 2009 550i since we get a fair amount of snow. I contemplated getting a dedicated set of snow tires/rims, but ended up just getting a set of Continental DWS's. ...

Frames are gone!! That was the first thing I did after the wash and pictures. Still can't believe someone traded it in at a Hyundai dealer.

From what you say, and what I saw in the video, it seems like this only happens once after startup. Seems normal to me as the engine is settling into it's idle.

We just had our's repaired last week. I love the no-duductible insurance fix. As other's have said, it looks like bug residue....not perfect, but acceptable.

The only ethanol free pumps I know of are at marinas. Since ethanol attracts water molecules, gas pumps for marine use tend to be ethanol free.
