What A Car Should Be — Like most aspect of the car. Fit and finish is great. Nice push from a 6 with twin turbo. Big enough to enjoy a trip with the family and fun enough for me to get up early on the weekend and go for a drive when no one wants to come.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Spacious and fun to drive

Cons: thirsty for premium

Very Nice Car — Summed it up with the pros and cons. But I need 40 words to post. So I also like the color options and the sound system is decent. Also really like the Winter Package now that I moved from GA to MA.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's not my M6 which I miss dearly, but it has some pep and gets 28mpg v the 12 I got on the M!

Cons: It's not my M6. I wish they had an M5 with AWD. I need the 4 doors now.

Fun And Powerful Sedan — Combination of luxury and Performance sedan. Car is great to drive and has good backseat room as well as cargo room in trunk. Great gas mileage on highway for a 360 HP sedan. Put the car in Sport Mode and you will enjoy the low end torque in the city as well. Fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Power and definitely a drivers car.

Cons: Nothing really

I Am In Love With This Car. — After driving my 550i for over 3 years it will be hard to ever buy any other car brand. This german machine has been built not only to last for many years, but to be reliable as well. The shifting paddles comes very handy when driving in roads and freeways.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great driving handling. Quick response, powerful and very safe...

Cons: The fuel economy is not the best, but not bad either.
