NoObie saying hi

Hey everyone,been lurking for quite awhile trying to decide between an X3M or M550i. Drove both and settled on a 2020 Carbon Black M550i. Loved the X3M but after having multiple lumbar&cervical spine fusions I was more comfy in the 550i. Took delivery 10 days ago.

Love the car,my wife does as well. During the test ride I knew once she mashed the throttle the deal was done! Plan on doing a tune and that's it lol. I'll be getting a Dragy as well as hitting the drag strip for private rentals come spring time.

Grew up drag/street racing motorcycles,have a couple of fast turbo bikes in the garage. Also had a bunch of AMG's in the past. Was the 1st person to break into the 11's in a stock E63 back in '07 and held that title for a long time at 11.95@118.5mph so I'm not new to drag racing cars as well. But I've definitely slowed down in my old age lol

Anyways,enough babbling....I'm glad to be part of the forum

Welcome to the forum. The 550 is still on my radar for when my lease is out next year.
