Curious if anyone has gotten the 2013 550xi with the 445hp engine...
I've been scouting around for a nice winter car and came across a beautiful 2012 550i xdrive with the Alpine White with 20" Black Gloss Premium rims.
This car is absolutely gorgeous in person, but I would love the extra hp and torque. I currently drive a C63 and don't want to use it for winters, but I would love to get something with similar power and I'm not sure I want an X5M.
I'd love to hear from other 550i xdrive owners to get their opinion on 2012 vs 2013.

We have a few 550i guys but nobody has the new motor.

Either way, if the dealer comes back with a really nice incentive and drops the price of the one I am looking at I might even go with a 2012. My only problem is I've never test driven a BMW before and I didn't want to test anything but the 550ix or X5 with the 4.8 twin turbo and they didn't have either on the lot. I'm going to test drive the one in the showroom this week though.
I really don't understand why they don't upgrade the X5/6 though. That would definitely make the SUV more enticing to me.
