thinking about my next car purchase

Right now I have an 07 335i sport with jb3 tune, m3 rep bumper and 19" style 313s. I was thinking of going with either an f10 550i or s4 3.0t with stasis tune. The reason I was thinking of s4 was to just go with something different than the classic styling interior of the 335i I have now. But then again the 550i interior is updated and more luxurious. The s4 is pure sport and the 3.0t is awesome engine with stasis tune. The v8 biturbo of 550 would be intoxicating. I know this BMW forum but what do you think.

Ooohh.. You're in Michigan? I haven't seen you around. You should come to our upcoming meets. PM me so I can snag your contact info as well.

But, back to the topic.... I'd say the B8 S4 is a nice car itself, but I do dearly miss the V8. I think the F10 550i VS. the B8 S4 is a big difference IMHO.. You could tune the S4 to match the 550i, but what if you tune the 550i????????

PM me your contact info

Can't you buy 2 S4's for one F10 550???

Anyway, aside from a great 3.0T, S4 was a pure disappointment for me...

Both different cars. Go drive them and I'm sure you will go with the 550i...it's a beast!
