Love The Msport — Overall nice car. Looks good, handles very well, plenty of features... Decent factory warranty. The runflats give us a peace of mind for long drives. Gas mileage is not bad for a sports car. Around 25 mpg. Anyone purchasing vehicles should fork over the money to extend the warranty, because if anything breaks its gonna be expensive.

Awesome 2013 Bmw 550x Drive With M Sport Package — Love this car. Very fast and sporty looking but also very safe. Sound system is great too, and the navigation works well. Haven't had any major problems with the car and the BMW warranty that comes with it is awesome.

Pros

Beautiful vehicle. Extremely fast and responsive. Ride quality is perfect, feels like you're driving on a cloud at 90mph.

Cons

Can accelerate to high speeds rather quickly without noticing. Back seat is not large enough for big adult.

Perfect Marriage Of Luxury And Performance — I absolutely love my 550i. On the outside it looks like a sexy beast, and once you step on the accelerator, your impression is confirmed. This is the absolute best car I've ever driven, and I'm in the car business. Sporty-style with the upgraded M-appearance package doesn't hurt either.

Pros

It looks good, handles very well, and has surprisingly good gas mileage.  The turbocharged 4 cylinder has a lot of torque and V6 like acceleration.  The engine seems well matched with the 8 speed automatic transmission.

Cons

My biggest beef is that it is so long that it barely fits in my garage.

A Luxurious And Fun To Drive Family Car. — I knew that I would enjoy the car, but I keep being surprised by how much I really love to drive it. It is sporty without drawing attention to itself. It gets pleasingly aggressive in sport mode. It gets teriffic gas mileage for a car of its size. The AWD system is better than my SUV. And it looks amazing - the black paint is so very black.

Top-notch — I really cant fine anything to say bad about this car. Its my first German and definitely not going to be my last. The gas Mileage could be better, but other than that, I love everything about my 2013 BMW.

The Ultimate Performance Sedan. — The Ultimate Driving machine, just keeps getting better and better. After 30 months in a 2011 535i, a new 2013 535 M sport found its way into my garage. Many improvements and most of all, sport steering handling. Bigger wheels, what an improvement. Must get the fat steering wheel with paddles!
