Well, it looked M5ish without the side grills. I remember that BMW had produced some M540's before on a limited basis. This one was too brand new to have a badge thrown on it...imo. I could smell the newness from outside...faaack i should've taken a pic of it*uzi*
Anyways, it could very well have been a badge thrown on, either way it's a sick car!

ohh ok I see what you mean now. 550 with M-Tech package. That doesn't technically mean its an M550.

There are only M540's and M535's. No M550's. The official M cars get full M parts, such as brakes, suspension, seats, etc.. It even has an ///M badge before the number.

The 550 with M-Tech only has the M-Tech aero kit.

And steering wheel and all that jazz, sport seats.


But no M badge on the car, only the wheels (IIRC) and steering wheel.


So no, there is not a M550, just a 550 with the M Sport package :)

I guess he must have badged it then, b/c it definitely had an M badge before the 550 the number.

Nice car but, E39 M540 is more classy looking bmw. E60 looks kinda cheap.

I think its only sport suspension. That's not the same as M
