Mein Auto: 12 550xi
Just picked up a 2012 550xi MSport...its bloody amazing

I've had C55, RS4 plus various other BMW's and this is by far the best of the lot. Ok yes the RFT's suck and I will replace them for dedicated summer tires, also a winter set of rims and rubber (Canada winters). Debating Motul or Amsoil, still doing research.....oh its deep blue, 20% tint, 19K...........its bloody amazing, absolutely love it and I will keep it. I have no complaints what so ever.......yes it will need a trickle charger, I do not see this as a big deal, its -35 up here sometimes, so we get over it quickly. The DHP completes the car to perfection.

Congratulations & welcome! The 550ix is a beast!! Underrated HP and more torque than you'll ever need ... impressed by mine as well.

Canada ... you people are tough. Been a rough winter here in the midwest USA!

WOW, what a great looking car. Getting the 535xi in the same color. Carbon Black is amazing! Send some more pics. Oh I use Motul. Local BMW guy recommended it. I had no idea what he was talking about so I changed my oil at 5k. Of course he swears by it... anyway, congrats!!
