And Car & Driver measured the 550i at 4.8s and the 540i at 5.7s. Worse yet the 4.5sec 550xi spanks the 540i even worse. Adding software brings it down to the sub-four second range. E39/E60 M5s can't keep up.

BTW, I test drove an E39 540 in 2003 when they had some pretty deep discounts. I ended up getting an A6 instead.

2013 X5M ........ 2013 650xi ...... 2011 550xi (ret) 2011 335d (ret)
