    Thanks for posting.
    I'm not really sure about the m550xd. The sound seems to be a bit artificial. Maybe better to go with a 550iX. But the torque is amazing. So far as I heard from a M source they limited the acceleration data to "only" 4,7 sec. (0-100 kph) to keep the M5 free of competitors in their own house....

    Hi Conny997 

    what is the 550 ix is that the 550 motor with a power upgrade to 450 hp ? I came across this comment by RC in another post somewhere.


    Re: M550d good video

    Thats right. The 550i and iX will have the new 450 hp engine (mod 2013). Available at least in the German market in the (late) autumn.

    My father ordered a X6 M 50d. He will get one of the first 5 cars deliverd in Germany in July this year. I will make sure to give hands on details as soon the Bimmer is here!


    Re: M550d good video

    I think this tri-turbo diesel engine is the best pick of X5-X6 and 5 series range. It would also suit to 7 and 6 series perfectly. The best DD engine so far, IMO.

    Same thoughts. Really could see myself buying a six with this engine!


    Re: M550d good video

    A friend of mine works for BMW as an engineer and is familiar with both the M5 and M550dxDrive (both much more than thousand of kilometers driven). He also preferred the diesel because even the M5 is not a sports car and the diesel is the perfect daily driver especially for long trips. Enough power, always sovereign. Also on the highway this one is far quicker than more than 99% of all others, even at higher speeds and always very relaxing. He drove with both cars in the Alps and thinks on wet roads and tight curves the allwheel-drive is the more secure / faster car for most drivers.


    Re: M550d good video

    I still don't get it why BMW would not give the new M5 AWD. Plain stupid in my opinion because I know at least two people who passed on the new M5 because of the lack of AWD. Even I may have had considered the M5 with AWD...

    My C63 AMG Coupe is fun to drive but to be honest, I wish it had AWD. The traction issues are obvious, even if they don't bother me as much as I thought they would. Still...

    Re: M550d good video

    +1 for this power you need to have AWD. It might be because of the integral steering, which can't be in combination with the AWD. Myself, I passed at the AWD in because of the integral steering at my Seven, but on a high performance car like the M5 you just need more traction.
