My Ride: has a D-Pillar
Tri-Turbo M550d Touring greatest BMW ever ?

Tri-Turbo 3.0L I6
380 hp and 540 lb-ft of torque
40 MPG highway
0-60 in 4.8 seconds (same as E46 M3)



Honestly, I just can't help myself...a high performance, highly efficent tri-turbo diesel powered wagon that has over 500 lb-ft of torque and will do MPG highway!?!

Okay sure...it'd be better if it had a manual

But tuning this beast will be epic

^ Agreed

I really dislike the X1 and X6, as well as the 5er GT. This is the first BMW (with the addition of the new M5) that has made me excited in the past few years

Euro only car, quoting US Fuel Economy ratings. Tease.
