Hello Hello new from the midwest!

Hey the name's Stephanie and I finally decided to join a BMW forum after having the car since March. I have a lot to learn and this looked like the place! I bought an 06 550i, used of course, because I was wanting something different to go along with my Honda that hasn't moved in quite some time lol. Haven't really had the time to do much with work being so crazy but I plan on stepping up soon.

This was it the first day I brought it home:


Really the only thing I have done to it is replace the runflats with some Hankooks, and slightly smoke the headlights and tail lights. Here's a quick snap of the headlights:


Thanks for taking the time!
Stephanie

Welcome to the Werkz. Looks like a nicely kept car, and the 550 has plenty of power to move it along when required.

I guess the obvious question needs to be asked, why a 550 if you drive slow?

I assume that you are a woman that enjoys her power, but doesn't abuse it unnecessarily?

Enjoy your time here.

Thanks and yes I love the power of the 8 cylinder but I have my moments where I rip into it a bit, but I really just enjoy the ride. So smooth compared to other cars I have driven, and I love it!

The power is very refined, deceptively refined.
