Mein Auto: 2013 BMW 535i
I Did It! It's a 550i!

Hello folks,

First of all I'd like to thank everyone here for all the valuable info and discourse regarding all subject BMW. Your insight has guided me to one of the best CAs in California (GP) and now I have a 2013 CBM 550i in my garage. The power of the vehicle is consuming, it's point and boom. I'm glad I didn't get this 15 years ago as I may not have had the maturity to keep it under 90. Picked this up today and interestingly on the way home, an AW modded 535 shouldered me a few seconds on the fwy, we gave each other the thumbs up .

I just have this one quick pic when he showed me the vehicle. More to come.

Sports auto with shift paddles

Greg Poland Hooked it up again! Thanks Greg!

Enjoy it, it's a ton of fun. If the power amazes you consider Dinan 2- it changes the 550 completely.

Congrats

I didn't expect the carbon black to have a bluish tint to it during the day. Lets one see some contrast between the front grill and the stylish bumper. I'm putting a limo tint on the back windows tomorrow . I'm glad the dealership didn't install front plates.

Totally worth the drive. Lots of potholes in Glendale, be cautious...

I'm 57, supposedly a mature responsible adult. Yet I get behind the wheel of my BMW and all maturity gets left behind, at about... you're right, 90MPH!

So much fun to drive!
