Friends,

I have been a great follower of this website and it helped me buy my 535i 2 years back. Time to move to 550i xdrive, really want an awd with some power!! Found one for 25k with 74k miles and is fully loaded.
Question - Too high mileage/price? KBB says 19k - What to expect for the next 2 years for maintenance spend? What should I look for while inspecting? I plan to keep it for some time (5 years). Thanks much guys. Much appreciated.

Just a question... have you searched these boards specifically looking at threads for "2011 550"? Just asking.... if so and you still are interested in a car like this, you should go ahead and do it. Here is a small representative sample of some threads about the 2011 550 with the N63 engine. If you have seen these already I apologize. If you havent seen them, and still are interested in a 550 after reading these, then you should just go ahead and do it.

Over-priced; N63 engine.

Flush with cash? You're gonna need it! N63, CCP or no, develops issues unpredictably that may hit you up for big $. Personally I'd go for N63tu, available, what, 2013+?
