Why so much 550i stage 4 talk in the M5 section?

Why so much 550i stage 4 talk in the M5 section? Sometimes I have to check to see if I'm in the right section. Thoughts?

So what's the point of getting an M5? I can save 17-25 grand going 550i stage 4.

Most of it comes from that winged guy. He went from making a suggestion to a full blown troll.

I don't understand why he bought a 550 instead of a 535. On the front page of this website it says Vishnu tuning just dyno'd over 700hp on that motor.

Think of all that extra money in the bank he could have had! Better gas mileage too!

I personally don't understand why people feel the need to prove themselves. Just be happy with what you have and respect others for what they choose to have. This whole "mine is better than yours" thing is such grade school bullshit.

This reminds of that one time that M5Post member ran into a 535i owner at the gas station who said he's eatin F10 M5's for lunch before with his car.

But yeah 550i Stage 4's are pretty sick. I'm gonna trade in my F10 M5 when the Stage 5 comes out.

Probably never driven this M5 hard. This car is epic. Sure there are better and faster cars out there. But a 5 seater, seat massager, heated wheel, maintenance included, etc car will be hard to be found for this price point.

The only way it could get better (worse) is....


I heard that you can't accurately dyno a Dinan 550i stage 4 because of <insert your reason>.

Those threads are not as irritating as this one.

Is that the one capable of warp 5 with the optional bikini-clad female blow job attendant replacing the passenger seat?

I think it's because M5 is not that special anymore.

When E60 (I know E60 is ugly IMO) came out, it had its exclusive engine, transmission, steering wheel, bodykits, etc.

Now, BMW puts M badges on everything. Even, the steering wheel of M5 shares with 528 M-sport. Despite its power, M5 engine is NOT as exotic as E60 engine which was made in the same facility as BMW F1 engine.

Therefore, some people think msport 550 gives them the same "excitement" as M5 with $20k discount.
