PLAYON's Carbon Black Beauty 550i (pics)

Finally sprung and purchased myself a BMW. I was going back and forth between an E90 M3, a 335i and tucked away in the back of my mind was a 550i. I picked it up yesterday but haven't snapped any pics until today. I am endlessly impressed with the refinement of the 5er. She's loaded with every option you can imagine, and I love the 172M rims, I don't think I'm going to invest in another set. I'm still going to stick around and troll the forums But without further ado here she is.

I think the aero kit on the 550 looks even better than that of M5, absolutely stunning!

As soon as you kill those reflectors I will declare you as having one of the nicest 5-series I've seen!

Yea, definitely in the works. Other then painted reflectors and a hardwired V1, I'm drawing blanks on the mods. . .

Out of all the Bangle era BMWs, I think the E60 is the most beautiful. Alot of people may think I am crazy, but the bold and distinct lines always leave me in awe. The 550i is definitely a sick car.

Nice manual transmission
It's really hard to find any 5-series with one...

Wow, 550i with 6MT, that's rare I guess.

Love the Black on Black... Why do people choose other colors... Awesome
Is that "Black Saphhire metalic" or "Jet Black"
What are people's views on the 2 types of Black???
