Mein Auto: 2008 BMW 535i Sport
Took Delivery of My 550i xDrive MSport Today!

Very excited to have my new car. Got the below picture with my iPhone as the sun was going down, I'll try to get some more with a decent camera this weekend.



First impressions. Loving it. Definitely feels significantly different than my 2008 535i Sport. Less tossable, more refined. I'm sure that's because it's bigger, heavier and has AWD. Even trying to stay under 4500 RPM for the break in, I can feel the extra 100 horses from my old car. iDrive has changed pretty significantly from my '08, so there is a learning curve there, but I like it so far. Looking forward to a 2 and a half hour drive out to the foothills tomorrow to get some more time with my new baby!

Thanks guys! Got up early to go for a pre-roadtrip drive this morning. It's so sweet! Benny, the wait was excruciating for me, but it's definitely worth it.

More photos...

Trip this weekend was awesome. Then drove to Marin and back from the city today. absolutely loving the car. Some quirks with the nav, but I think that is some user error and getting used to the changes from the last generation. I'm trying to be a little conservative during the break-in period (400 miles down - 800 to go). Having fun with it now, but CANNOT WAIT to really stomp on the throttle. It's so much faster than my '08 535i, not at all regretting the extra money for 100 more HP.
