My 2018 M550i xDrive Delivered!

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share some photos of my M550i I just received. I learned quite a bit about the G30 during the time I had my 540i, so I feel like this M550i is configured as close to perfect as possible for me! haha

Huge thanks to Steve Choi at Shelly BMW for making this happen! Incredibly grateful for your help with both the 540i and this M550i sale

So what did you learn about your 540i that you liked and didn't like.

Also, how come you skipped the dynamic handling package on your M550i.

You get those tires here in Europe too. And I rather have those than the Pirelli P Zero.

Congrats on your second G30, and again great pics.

Any reason for the change in color from black to white?

Congrats, I think I have to grand and hold my notebook upside down to see the images properly lol
Definitely an off topic but worth the read as it's funny . Two guys hit the restaurant to garner their delicate tummies . The waiter shows up and takes the orders .A few moments later he delivers the delicate foods but mishandles those as he gives Roger's order to Frank and vice versa . Two guys look at each other and Frank says :
Hey Roger, this moony waiter misplaces our orders we need to rotate the table to get our meals properly

Sorry about this guys guess I'll just stick to a written report.....

Strange that when I look at it here, on my iPad where I shot it from, it is the right way up, but indeed from my office work-station, it has flipped.....



Great car though, very happy. Not as responsive or involving as an M- car or a Porsche, but the more relaxing ride of the 550i is what I expected and wanted.
