Mein Auto: 2011 550xi
Why a 550xi - thanks Bimmerfest

Just took delivery of 550xi at the Performance Center. Bimmerfest was very helpful in making the final decision. It provided a robust range of views on the +\- of the new 5 series. I totaled my last BMW (2008 535xi) in a high speed head on collision (hit by an idiot texting) and except for a few broken bones pretty much walked away. After that I must say i was a bit partial to a weighty BMW. I saw the concerns on Bimmerfest about the increased weight but frankly did not notice a problem with cornering in the test drives (or now). Due to the posts on Bimmerfest on rft's problems decided on the wheel/rim insurnace and needed a tire replacemnt in the first week. The dealer did not mention the performance center but given the Bimmerfest discussion I decided to give it a try - great experience! One month in and what a car! Thanks

Welcome to the 'fest and glad you picked PCD. I did it a few years ago and it was a lot of fun.
