.....F10 550I M Sport

I had a run in with one of these in Mexico this morning Walked him from a 60ish roll without much of problem w/just the tune and exhaust. I think I was more surprised than he was, given I have a 6MT and he has an 8spd auto....until I checked the weight on that thing (listed @ 4277 lbs) and realized I have a decided power-to-weight advantage.

The 5 series except the M5 sucks now. Drove a loaner and the steering and driving dynamic was terrible. It felt like a Lexus.

True

M5/6 are much better. But the m5 is just so large, wish it was e60 sized

Nice but against my 550 M Sport with a JB4, you wouldn't stand a chance. I ran 12.0 at 114 in the 1/4. Acceleration is insane for just tune. Now against my ESS 650 E92 the 550 feels like a VW bug

That was almost 2 weeks ago *lol*. Things have changed a bit since then. JB4 probably wouldn't do you much good

You can JB4 a lawn mower and it'll be faster than something, what's your point?

Wow, I'd have never thought to JB4 my lawnmower...she running really hot and smoking all the other mowers in the hood!
I only have three queries about this:
1) What do I tell all the folks who stop and ask me if it's a M4 because of the exhaust sound?
2) Can I legally put an ///M badge on the mower?
3) How often do I have to change the rod bearings now?

Misread the OP, thought he said the 550 was the one with the tune.

oops

1. Just say yes, it's not different than an M4
2. Yes
3. As recommended by most E9X M3 owners, every other oil change, usually coincides with a engine air filter change. Remember, the rod bearings in a 2-stroke law mower is much easier to swap out

Thank you so much! I finally have piece of mind and not a moment too soon. I surreptitiously installed M badges on the mower and was living in fear of being discovered. Now I can come out of the shadows and proudly show it off. I only have one query, what's a law mower? Something for juris doctors or those who aspire to play one on TV?
