I know if feels fast, but didn't think it felt that fast, I too would like to see a more technical review.
I didn't mention this in the story, but I hooked the 550i up to electronic test equipment and pulled a 0-60 in 5.12 seconds. It would have been quicker with the Sport Automatic transmission, as there was significant delay between gear engagement.
