Picked up the 550xi

I picked it up this morning in the rain. While my driving time has been limited, I like the car very much. There is a noticeable difference switching from comfort mode to sport. I'll post more details after I've driven it more, but I can comment on the B&O sound system. I think it sounds very very good. It's terrible with satellite, but very good with an ipod or CD. I highly recommend it. Below are some pictures.

congrats!

Its night and day difference between sport and comfort+ mode in my 2013 car as well. Feels like two completely different cars.

It could be the reflection but are your grille slats black or chrome ? It does look black...but all 550's are chrome/satin combo..

Unfortunately, they are chrome, and I can't switch them out with black ones because of the night vision camera that's stuck on the grille.
