What a day.
Got yesterday a call from the dealer saying my ride was already there, a stunning 535d carbon black m sport
, so today went there for a quick look before taking delivery next week.
After drooling all over my car
i noticed the presence of a 640d Gran Coupe and a M550d, my dealer approached and suggested a drive
640d GC - Great looking car, amazing engine, very good handling, probably the best looking car bmw currently makes. The car gives that sitting low feeling, but the visibility is much worse than in the 5 series, also the headroom in the back is much better on the 5.
M550d - Wow that sound is something, i don't care if it comes from the speakers or whatever, it's just great.. the 640d also as a nice sound (from the speakers also) but this one sounds incredible.
As far as the ride goes what struck me was that the car i had driven 10 min before was very similar in performance, don't know if it was due to the all wheel drive giving a less sportier feel or the fact that it was a short test drive and the main diferences are at higher speeds... it's a great machine though.
Concluding they are two magnificent and perfect Dr. Jekyll & Hyde cars, great comfortable saloons and when you feel like it, two beasts
(and thinking these are diesels....
Can't wait till next week to drive mine.
