My First BMW! 2020 M550i

My last 5 vehicles have been Merc 420, Merc 550, Jag XJR (x2), and, most recently a Stg1 600hp Audi S7. While Im missing my S7, Im really am enjoying my first BMW, a 2020 M550i.

I ordered the vehicle December 2, 2020, here is the build:

Rhodonite Silver Metallic
Black Nappa Leather
Grey Popular Wood Trim

Driving Assist Plus
Dynamic Handling Package
Luxury Seating Package
Parking Assistance Package
Executive Package
19 M wheel 664M w/perf rft
Heated Steering Wheel
Space Saver spare
Front and Rear Heated Seats
Leather Dashboard
Ceramic Controls
Bowers and Wilkins sound system

A couple of loose ends, I am waiting for the world to get back to some normalcy so I can test fit some spacers. Also, I want to research options for lowering a vehicle with the dynamic handling package. If anyone has had any experience here, Im wide open to suggestions. I may also find a gloss black diffuser or paint the stock part.

Final notes. I not a fan of the Cerium Grey on the Silver, that is one of the reasons for all the body parts. The other is I like the black look. Although Ive never done this before, I replaced all the pieces on my own in my garage. I had plenty of time to research as the vehicle was getting built. The hardest part was the side reflectors and the front bumper trim.

Ive been in the tire business my whole life and purposely ordered this vehicle with the stock 19 performance set up and a spare tire. The reason for the performance tires was to get 840 included in the build, which increased the top speed limiter. The spare tire was for ride purposes, and I wanted to get away from the run-flats. Sorry for the lengthy rambling.. Bottom line, I'm H A P P Y!!!

Thanks! I'm in Arizona. The house isn't mine, it up for sale down the street. Thought I made a good backdrop.

Beautiful work on the exterior, the black pieces of trim really do finish off the Silver Metallic spec perfectly IMO.

The black looks great with the silver vs. the cerium. Although the cerium looks better with my red than your silver, the gloss black looks even better. So like you, I switched it all over to the gloss black, except the mirror covers in CF to match the CF spoiler. Now as soon as we get opened back up again my body shop is going to paint my lower rear bumper cover and wheels in the same gloss black.

Great job on your car!

Looks Awesome, Color is truly stunning in person, we had one in the shop couple weeks back, Had a set of Vossen HF-5's on it and it looked amazing! He also did the midpipe with the resonator delete and it sounded better then the M5 comp we had in the shop at the same time.

Great job with all the mods. Same stuff I would have changed/modified without any of the tacky over the top stuff that usually makes me cringe. Nice ride... enjoy
