Felt the interior was inferior for a car at this price range, The maintenance cost are off the charts and I do not like run flats which come with the M-Sport package. Love the look of the car but refuse to pay for the upkeep.

This car is also really nice but, it gave me the sense of being a grandpa. It does have all the amenities including heated backseats which is a big plus. It also seems to have a little more room in the cabin, But, if you read about the service that needs to be done and the problems you stand to come across, its not worth the headache.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Look mean

Cons: Price

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles great, smooth ride, excellent acceleration, reliable, bumper to bumper original factoy warranty still in effect.

Cons: Tires. I recommend getting the extra tire and rim insurance.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

Pros: Everything

Cons: None to speak of
