Heads up, DSB 6spd 550i msport (no affiliation)

I can't stop searching cars.com and autotrader every so often because I was in the habit of doing so looking for my deep sea blue metallic (DSB) 6spd 550i msport. I spotted this and thought I'd pass it along.

You don't see many DSB msports, let alone the 6spd. I've seen the tan interior before but never the white/cream leather that almost reminds me of Silverstone interior on the M5.

Higher mileage, but might be worth checking out for someone on this forum. The video is hilarious; it has a tachometer AND a horn! WOW!

Nice color combination, with the higher miles, the price is optimistic. I wouldn't pay more than $20k unless it came with an extended warranty.

Wow, that is quite the price tag. Looks beautiful though.

I still search ebay and craigslist and other car sites to look at BMW's just to see whats out there even though I own one already!

That car is the earliest LCI car I've ever seen, it was put into service in March of 2007. The VIN shows it is the 10th 6-speed 550 built that year. Being it is so early, and that it is listed as originally being a manufacturer vehicle, got to wonder what it was used for. Test mule? Press car? Something else? Either way, I'd bet that car has led a hard life.

BTW, like the other posters here, I also still surf the want ads for "my" car, even though I've owned it nearly 3 1/2 years now! ***55357;***56842;

Cool, glad to hear I'm not the only one.

Does anyone know if any LCI 550i msports made it into the US with a BMW individual color order? Like I said, I wouldn't have necessarily posted this other than the rare color combo and 6spd. I saw the early production number but didn't think to tie it back to the vin range for the msport 6spds, very interesting!

Wow, that interior is spotless and well taken care of, usually you will see ink stains from jeans on the light color interiors.

I worked for an import manufacturer and they had a liberal cheap lease program. I know BMW did have that too (at least when a co-worker up in NJ went to Woodcliff Lake or Montvale
and worked for BMW). That program creates lots of used cars and they are driven nicely usually. Like none of us ever drives aggressively......
