Casually browsing around autotrader looking at BMW f10 550i. Older ones are now 15-25k cars all day in pristine shape with low miles
As usual with most BMWs as time went by I really started to like the looks of these more, and more. Especially in 550i M sport trim, they are extremely handsome cars. In a departure from most other modern BMWs there isn't anything strange, or overwrought about the design. It is just a straightforward, buttoned up, teutonic executive sedan with a damn twin turbo v8 hiding under the hood.
I have very fond memories of driving a rented diesel through the mountains of Austria, and Bavaria a few years back.
When you take into account the performance of these cars (500 hp with a tune), the well appointed interior, and the extreme value that they present at their current depreciation it paints a compelling argument. You can even find the very rare one in manual transmission.
While any modern BMW is going to be high maintenance, from what I have read these guys are relatively reliable.
Even the CPOs are still amazing deals right now
