Thumbs up

TopGear Magazine has tested the M550d!


It seems they were impressed, even with the xDrive system. Here in Sweden F10 with xDrive has been criticized in magazines when compared with Audis quattro system in the A6.

As I understand, the M550dx with standard m-sport suspension is 10mm lower than a standard 5serie xdrive.
But if adaptive drive is choosen, will it be at the same hieght?

Anyone who have tested both options on this car?
What's the impressions/thoughts?

We have the M550D saloon, lovely car, bloody fast, absurd accelerations and launches, handles ok.
Interior is made of good materials, but comming from an Audi we have some things which disappoint us :/ The sat nav, its bloody awful next to Audi's... And we have the professional navigation.
Another thing is the interior finishings, not the materials, the way they make a transition from a material to another, they have some gaps which could be filled for a prettier look.

And now..on a brand new car with around 1000km...a rattle appeared seems to come from the central dash. This leaves me upset, would the dealer fix it, as in FIX, and not create other rattles?
