Let's start on the engine and drivetrain:


This 4.4L V-8 produces 400hp/450lb torque and has relatively low miles, only 80,660 miles appearing on the odometer though the car shows as one with half of that. The engine is very healthy and has loads of smooth, torquey power! Even with a small crack of the throttle, the 550i pulls away effortlessly. Really, a wonderful touring luxury car experience with a sporty feel. No check engine lights, no service due, no knocks, ticks, bangs or issues!. Brand new radiator and engine seals just done under maintenance free warranty - $6k retail cost. Just smooth BMW power! Apparently BMW put a lot of engineering effort into these V8 Twin Turbo engines and they are pretty much bulletproof. It was BMW's 5 Series flagship model in 2011.


The 8 speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly, no delays, no odd gear shifts, holding gears or errors! Manual, Comfort, and Sport modes all work.


No bangs, no rough ride, no clunks! The shocks dampen wonderfully especially due to the Dynamic Handling Package. The car is very tight in corners, and comfortable on the straights! The brakes have confident pedal, great pressure with a firm positive stop. Brakes service up to date.


Steering is tight, aligned nicely, doesn't pull and weights up nicely at speed. No dead spots or play.

Let's continue to the Exterior:


The Space Gray Metallic paint is extra nice. All original and has a quite a nice shine, recently finished and waxed by a highly acclaimed detailer here in Los Angeles. CLEAN and CLEAR CarFax.

NO ACCIDENTS. There are a few scrapes on the bottom of the front bumper from some low driveways/speed bumps, a small couple chips and scratch on the rear bumper area (check pictures). Especially on the Gray they are particularly hard to see and certainly do not take away from the overall beauty of the car. Still way above average for a 80k + mileage car!


All 4 run flat tires are in great shape and have over 75% tread left. Rears replaced at 74K


The OEM BMW Sport style 19” wheels are very clean. Only very minor curb marks on the passenger side wheel. Check pictures (barely noticeable)


The windshield is perfect, with no chips or sandblasting. It is clear glass that makes a world of difference. The door and rear glass and moonroof are in perfect shape.


Xenon headlights light up bright and all exterior lights work perfect!

On to the Cabin:


The Black Dakota leather seats are fantastic! CoolVentilation and Heating work perfectly. They are incredibly supportive with what feels like zero foam wear. The leather and foam is soft and comfortable. You sit surrounded in these buttery soft seats and overall BMW luxury! The leather has been very well cared for and shows only VERY minor flaws for a 6 year old car. All power seat way functions work perfectly! The leather has been recently cleaned and conditioned as well! Rear seats are in excellent shape also and barely used.


Excellent carpet in the car! It has been shampooed and cleaned as part of the overall detail. It is in wonderful shape and is covered in equally wonderful shape black floor mats - check out the pics! Carpet in the trunk is in very nice shape.


Door panels are in wonderful shape! Only some very light finger tip wear near the driver window switches, which is very typical of the rubberized plastic coating.


All power seat functions work perfect!


All windows work and sunroof work perfectly.


The Entertainment system works fantastic with no glitches or errors. This car has Navigation, Bluetooth, Sat Radio, Smartphone Integration, Voice Command and Keyless Entry. The scroll wheel works perfectly and shows a little wear in the middle which is common on these 6th generation BMW’s. Dual Climate selections work perfectly, the radio works perfectly and sounds GREAT with the Premium HiFI Sound System.


The leather very soft and feels great! All steering wheel functions and buttons work as they should.


The cargo area is fantastic shape. Clean battery - no corrosion. Original full BMW OEM manuals in their leatherette folder!


All front and rear parking sensors, heads up display and blind spot detection work perfectly.


Driving this 550IL is exactly what is was meant to be: a comfortable, relaxing, powerful experience. This was a $72k vehicle when new and still feels the part! It pulls like a train if you let your right foot have some fun, or cruises like a comfortable cruiser if you aren't in a rush. Wonderful for around town, ideal for enjoying on the weekends and perfect for a road trip, this 550i is truly a treat to drive. One of the most appealing aspects of the newer generation of the 5 Series is their ride quality, and this car weathers pot-holes just as well as the smooth back roads of Southern California. It is in its glory out on the open highway.

Feel free to ask me any questions. Residents around the country I am happy to be flexible for your arranged shipper so that you can get your new car as soon as possible. This is a client's car which he valued greatly and has no time to dedicate to actively marketing. Title in hand.

My standard disclaimer/mantra for any car regardless of service or price: You are buying a used car. Eventually every car will break, if you find one that doesn't please let me know. You won't have to worry about any repairs for at least 2 years on this BMW 550i though. BMW dealers are more than happy to fix problems under warranty.I personally do my ABSOLUTE BEST to offer only cars that are of TOP NOTCH service. I am not a dealer, just a guy who loves BMW (among other cars) and hope to pass along my passion and fervor for these cars. Please understand that it is a used car and will have minor signs of use. That means please do not expect a showroom brand new car. Please adjust your expectation level to that of a 80k plus mile car, but however is way above average for its year/miles.

Please only bid if you intend to buy. A $1000 deposit will be required to hold the car within 48 hours of the auctions end. If you would like to have an Ebay 3rd party mechanic service check out the car I MORE than welcome it. Please have the car checked out BEFORE bidding and not after, if you intend to use that service. And please, if you would like to utilize this service, contact me with more than a couple days left in the auction so we can arrange schedules. Please check your local laws and registration procedures before buying. Buying over the internet can be scary sometimes! I get it, because I am an enthusiast too!! For that very reason, I am more than happy to answer every and any question you may so you know 100% what you are buying. But, please ask any and all questions ahead of purchase! All sales are final, you are buying as-is, the sky is blue, etc, etc. Sorry to have to give the boring speech.
