    E60 550
  1. My E60 550 has heated, massage and climate control. All seats should be made this way!!
  2. V8 curiosity

    Hi all, newbie here with a V8. I had an E39 540i for about seven years and loved her. She could always put a smile on my face and I will always be grateful to her for wiping the smug smile off the face of the brand new Audi TTS driver at the lights! At twenty years old it was at the point where I was going to have to spend heaps keeping her together or go through a painful divorce. I spent ages trying to find an E60 545 as a newer replacement but couldn't find one I liked but finally found a loaded 550. It's an SE but has the M Sport package, wheels, suspension, steering wheel, aerodynamics and rear spoiler. With comfort seats as well I'm not sure how this would differ from the M Sport model. We've been together a few months now and while I don't yet love her the way I loved my 540 we are slowly building a relationship that I think could last. Other than a couple of off road rangies these have been my first V8's and I would find it hard to give up that effortless power, from gentle and refined to snarling beast at the stab of the pedal. I'm at the age now where the advantages of auto outweigh the disadvantages (although I admit there are times when a manual would be nice) but sports mode can still put a smile on my face. Great site with clearly some very knowledgeable people so will be checking back regularly.
