Mein Auto: 2015 535xi 2013 X3 35i
Got a 2011 550i as a loaner

My 535xi is in the shop for a door ding, they gave me a 2011 550xi for a few days to drive. First impression, the car has about 18000 miles and it still feels new, solid and tight, that is a good sign. Highway power is unbelievable. I have driven the 550xi before but never alone. I got it on the highway in sport mode and floor it, very impressed with the V8 engine. The handling felt about the same as my 535xi and the brakes are not as touchy as my 535.

Mein Auto: From BMWs to Porsches
That's what I call salesmanship! Sounds like what my Mom's Cadillac dealer used to do whenever she brought her car in for service...I cannot count the number of times my Mom would take her usually less than 2 year-old Cadillacs in for service and leave with a new or newer Cadillac that they had given her as a "loaner".
2013 Porsche Carrera 4
2011 Panamera 4S; 2012 Mini CooperS convertible;
Prior BMWs: `05 645CiC; `07 650i; `08 M6 convertible; '08 135i; `11 750ix MSport
