You can, of course, more easily mod the 550 with say the Dinan software which will aid straight line speed but do nothing for handling, cornering and braking.

BMW and Porsche do have something in common in that their cars often perform slightly better than their official specifications, but more often than not it is Porsche that tends to sandbag to a greater degree. There are any number of tests that bear this out.
Well, it's certainly then not "pretty clear" at all that the 4S is quicker than the 550xi.

In any event, the P 4S and 550xi are very different cars, inside and out. TS shouldn't have a problem deciding after further consideration of what he wants in a car
