    2011 BMW 550

    Why Make the Seven

    Pros: Luxury personified

    Cons: Luxury personified

    I recently took ownership of a 2011 535xdrive. I never drove the vehicle since I had owned two prior 5 series vehicles. This car is as close to pure luxury when kep the the comfort mode as anything you can find. It is much larger and rommier than it's predecessor. In the sport mode, it behaves a little more like what we would expect, but still not quite what it was. I think there are going to be a lot of BMW enthusiasts who are not happy with this car for the above reasons. I dont know who would buy the seven. You can buy a 550 and save 15k. Since I am not a kid anymore (67) and I have an E550 coupe that in the sport mode or otherwise feels much more sporty than the BMW I can live with it and enjoy it. It is still a techno monster. But overall i would endorse it

    2008 BMW 550

    Rocket in a car shape

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: The narrow profile tires

    The BMW 550 with the sport package is a fantastic car. It has an amazing handling and performance. Eagerly reacts to the driver. The only down side, the narrow profile tires are not meant to be driven on New England’s pot holes.
