Mein Auto: 328xi M, Range Rover, 911
2013 550 xi Msport arrived

We picked up our new 550 a couple of weeks ago on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. After a short wait while the dealer de-badged it for us, we packed it up for the 470 mile ride to our house in NC.
The car is so powerful and seamless I cant wipe the smile off my face !
The 328xi we turned in was deeply missed.....for the first few minutes !
Here's a few pics

Congrats! I am so jealous, if it weren't for the fact that I drive 20,000 miles per year, I would of gotten a 550i instead.

But hey! I have an AH5 on order, can't complain!

WOW that looks really good. That sure does look more like Imperial Blue than DSB or Carbon Black.

It changes quite a bit based on the type of light. I agree IB is a great color.

He may have meant that picture of the 3-series, was that your 328 you replaced? DSB, right?

Congrats! Great color, enjoy it.

Lmfao ! You're right, I should have bought a 528 Xi back then. That 328xi Msport had every option and had a sticker of 50k. I had just started a new Architectural Firm when I leased the 3, and that was my idea of doing it on the cheap for my wife to drive!

Congrats! ...If you want to be further impressed by the power, I would look into getting Dinan stage 2 tune.

Add me to the Dinan vote- I couldn't drive around thinking I left that many ponies napping under the hood.

Huge difference

Congrats and enjoy- great car
