Seems like the 535 with similar miles would be cheaper even after adding a tune and a few bolt ons. Reliability would likely (going off pure internet research) still be much better in the 535 vs the 550 assuming similar maintenance care by the PO(s). The 550 seems to be the car to lease or buy for the short term due to the issues they run into

Ehhhh. That price is a tad high for the mileage. You can find some with half the mileage for that price with more packages.

Alpine white on black+carbon

Has following packages:
- cold weather (heated front + rear seats, steering)
- m sport (front + rear bumper look)
- premium (comfort access keys + door, power tailgate)
- driver assistance (backup cam, parking distance control sensors, heads up display on windshield)
- lighting (adaptive LEDs + auto high beams, these are the much nicer headlights)

and a whole lot of other stuff. PM me if interested.

NP. I understand. I want a red interior and am willing to pay for it, but just can't find front and rear heated seats. Good luck with your search!

The tan interior one looks more in line price vs options. Is xdrive a requirement? Only reason I bring it up is simply do to if you need to carry out certain maintenance items it complicates things (oil pan for example)
