Mein Auto: BMW 550i X-Drive M-Sport
Red face Any Regrets: Switching from 650i to 550i with M-Sport Pkg?

Getting ready to pull the trigger. I love my 650i but my spine health has pushed me to make the switch to the 550i.
Anyone else do the same? Regrets?
BTW, I have driven the 550i with M-Sport package and standard power seats and I was very impressed.
I am ordering mine with active Ventilated seats so I am hoping it's even better.
Thanks in advance.
Getting the numbers later today.

I would be willing to bet a lot of money this has to do with US Crash certifications.
