    Thinking of buying a F10 550i xDrive

    Hey,

    Thinking about buying one of these for a luxury comfort sedan. There's one available locally for a reasonable price with low'ish KM's and the options I think I want.

    Universal Garage Door Opener
    Ambient Lighting
    Rear Window Defogger
    Pwr windows -inc: anti-trap, comfort open/close
    Car/key memory
    Dual front illuminated sunvisor mirrors
    Interior lighting -inc: front foot wells, cargo area, front & rear reading lights
    BMW Assist -inc: 1-year Safety & Security subscription, Google MyInfo Send-To-Car
    Front centre armrest w/lockable climate-controlled storage
    Fineline anthracite interior trim
    Central pwr lock switch -inc: fuel-filler door, remote function
    Pre-wiring for SIRIUS satellite radio
    (3) rear headrests, w/outer positions adjustable
    Cupholders integrated in front centre console & rear armrest
    60/40 rear seat w/through loading system
    3-spoke heated leather sport steering wheel w/audio controls
    Voice control for audio, telephone, navigation
    Anthracite roof liner
    Navigation system -inc: BMW on-board HDD navigation, BMW TeleServices
    iDrive system -inc: 10.2 high-resolution display

    I currently do not own a car with a V8 in it, and I think the F10 550i would make a nice addition.

    Does the xDrive have open diffs front and rear, then uses traction control to put power to the wheels, or does it have a real LSD front and rear.

    Is it difficult to equip these with a remote starter?

    Does the audio system support BT Audio streaming?

    Can't answer your questions, but my guess would no and yes.

    Great car, good motor, I'd personally love a 550i or X5 50i as a daily.
    2009 335i coupe back to stock...for now

    Yeah. I'm looking at it as a daily when I'm not hauling kids around.

    I would guess open diffs all around. Regarding remote starter, yes, difficult due to BMW's electronics I haven't seen anyone do it on an F10.

    I have a 13 550ix with Dinan stage II. Has 6000 miles on it and just past my first year with it.

    Great at car as a DD. Best 1/4 to date 12.5 @ 109. Very comfortable. BT music streaming.

    Mustang dyno 386/460. Get the IX as it's a great street car stop light to stop light with the awd.

    BT phone is very clear and easy to put customers / clients in and out of.
