Just picked up my F10 550 and WOW!!!!

Just got delivery of the new F10 and all I can say is WOW. The speed of the vehicle really caught me by surprise. I heard all of the comments on the 535 but few on the 550 and it is a FAST car. The power is present as soon as you turn on the ignition and the acceleration didnt stop till way north of 80 (cant say how fast I got it up to, dont want to seem like a reckless driver). the whole time you are really pushed back in your seat and treated to a very exuberant ride. Have way more to say but just wanted to drop a quick one here before I go back out to joy ride some more. One more thing though, people really do stop and stare. What a thrill ride....

I had a 550 GT as a loaner, after that 535i seems slow. 550 is a blast to drive.

I agree even a 535i is a blast to drive, and is over powered to enjoy it fully. The speed limit comes on so quickly. 550i is even more over powered. Both are really enjoyable.

Thank you Kfiend. I will try to get some better pics when I get new wheels. I gave up on the Breytons and will go with something else. Your look really good man. Congratulations. Sweet ride man. Hope you are playin with it as much as you like I know I am. Just look for any excuse to drive it... Thanks again for the heads up on the wheels.

Nice Car, why does it say "TWIN POWER TURBO" I thought these were supposed to be "TWIN TURBO". I don't think twin turbos are fitted.

535i comes with N55 Single Turbo Twin Power engine and 550i comes with N63 V8 Twin Turbo. At least I am seeing two turbos in my engine bay.
