Today BMW brought their fleet of 3/4/5/6/X4/X5 vehicles to our local dealer so that volunteers would take their products out on test drives and compare to competitor vehicles. For each test drive, BMW donated $10 to TEAM USA for the Paraolympics. Naturally, I drove the most interesting of the line up, a 2015 SL550 with 102 miles on the clock and damn near every box ticked.

Overall, the SL has an amazing chassis and was far more composed at highway speed than the 6. The engine is a masterpiece and the constant turbo whine is a reminder that there is always more power available if needed. Its fairly spectacular. The sticker on this car was >125k. The interior blew the BMW out of the water and had far more wizardry and sheer tech than the BMW.

Next up, a 650i Convertible. I didn’t check out the sticker on this car, but it was drop dead gorgeous. The engine was far more entertaining than the SL, but the chassis let this car down in comparison to the SL. The interior was very nice, but didn’t feel as special as the SL.
