Your 550i is an individual right, care to share more interior and closeup paint pics 👍🏽

Gorgeous!!! love that sycamore wood trim too..

I've recently snagged the Alpina noble wood trim that I'll put in soon. I had a Venetian beige interior that I swapped out for the M5 Sakhir Orange. But man, your car with all the options.. is stunning!

did you buy it new? if so, did you purposely not pick the surround view option and ventilated seats?

Hi there.

Many thanks for your nice comment. The Alpina wood trim is freaking awesome. Unfortunately very expensive. The M5 Sakhir Orange is not my cup of tea. I prefer the softer and classical colour.

My car was a second hand - a leasing return from a BMW Manager in Munich. It was only 6 month old as I took it over.
As for ventilated seats, well I don't think I want it because it weakens the leather structure due to the perforation.
Yes, the surround view would be great since it is quite useful in the narrow streets of Europe. Too bad the first orderer didn't include it as well. Still my car is heavily loaded. Happy with the current equipments.


And hey... why don't you show us your gorgeous car? Eager to see it!

Personally I would not have parked the E39s so close to that M5!

At 400hp each, I'm thinking that those are M5 E39s! It's OK, then. Very nice collection of BMW art.

There is something about the mystique of the E39 M5 that still exists today. I had a lowly 528i E39 and it was still an amazing car to drive. I can only imagine what an M5 with double the horsepower and amazing suspension would have been like.

Just in case you have not seen this, here is an E39 M5 showcased with a couple of stars thrown in. I have not figured out yet how to embed a YouTube video on this site, so apologies in advance for this clunky link.

You can find one that has a single dial instead of 2 on the right side. The second dial is for moving headlight up/down, which is only specific to European cars and I suspect only on halogens. It does nothing on my car.

You should opt for this if you have xenon :
