I'm going to no way utilitze the 550i's potential - or really get anywhere near it. I think 95%+ of purchasers would see minimal real world driving benefits of the 550 over the 535. The 535 is the best value F10 in my book - by a wide margin.
There are some minor aesthetic differences that, for me, give the 550i a preference over the 535 (i.e. wheels, exhaust tips). But overall, I think your comments are spot on.
