Mein Auto: 550 I
2006 550 i

Hi there,

I had a 545 many years ago, am looking at a 2006 550 I, i know the owner of dealership well and have seen all service documents from BMW, one owner. Car has 86 K on it, looks great but have heard that Transmission issues (in general) start around 90K and cost 8K to fix.
Can you do a stress test on the transmission? Have any others had issues with there 550 I, car is a dream to drive and curious if others out there have had any issues and perhaps if there is anything in particular should be reviewed on it prior to purchase in more depth. I will be taking it to my mechanic for inspection prior to buying it. I know and respect that they are pricey to fix but want to take the precautions. thanks for anyones comments or insight
