Thanks for the pics. I'm not a big fan of Barbera in the 3 series, but agree with you that it looks awesome on the 5. Sporty and at the same time elegant. Excellent choice! Bet you can't wait to get it back.

My brother is doing ED in the fall and you made his color choice for him--at least for now!

Very nice! Please post pix when you pick her up? This is a priority one option that I am seriously considering. What interior color and materials did you choose with this?

The color that picture shows is amazing, I would have ordered that in a SECOND. Sadly, that's not what Barbera really looks like. I've seen it in person a dozen or so times now, in various lighting conditions, and it unfortunately is a very purple burgundy (and not the way Sparkling Graphite can be slightly purple only to some people only in certain poor lighting conditions, we're talking burgundy with a visible purple cast in perfect blue skies sunlight and PUUURRRPLE on rainy days). Look at the Official E92 Barbera Red thread on E90post.com. They're unfortunately pretty accurate.

The MT is a blast to drive! The V8 & the 6MT are a perfectly matched. The short shifter makes it all the better. There are times when I turn off the radio/cd just to listen to the sound of the V8. The roar of the V8 at 3k rpms is music to my ears!

It wasn't on my radar, but I'm seriously going to have to consider this 550 --- really love the appearance. I used to own an E39 540 6 mt and know what you mean about owing a V8 -- I miss that car

My decision will also need to be influenced by lease rates vs 535 when the 09's come out.
