Our tester BMW 535i xDrive Gran Turismo arrived with all season tires. Not a problem, unless your test is taking it to Sun Peaks Ski Resort in BC's interior in the winter. So, OutDrive.ca took the car on a wee warm up to see if the xDrive will hold it's own on ice.

Yamaha's ditched the FZ6 for the FZ8 with a smoother torquier engine derived from the FZ1, but will it lure new riders and intermediate riders seeking a sporting experience melded with sharp streetfighter looks?

BMW 550i GranTurismo GT--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars
A promotional pilot we filmed with help from Elmhurst BMW. This is the BMW 550i GT with Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars
The unusually shaped BMW 550i Gran Turismo provides incredible long-distance touring comfort for four passengers. It's like being in a private jet, especially if you order the business class seating in back, then pile on the entertainment and driver assistance options. Costs like a private jet, too.
Between BMW's two hatchback-like recent offerings, the 550i GT is the better vehicle than the two-year-old BMW X6. The GT will be even more desirable once BMW in the spring adds versions with a 300-hp six-cylinder engine and with all-wheel-drive. Only two things require acclimatization: the view from the outside looking at the side and rear, and the view from inside looking out the rear window.
I put nearly 1,000 effortless miles on the 550i GT in a long, single-day trip down the Eastern seaboard during a gloomy, damp winter day and night, the kind of day that inspired Edward George Bulwer-Lytton to take pen in hand and proclaim, "It was a dark and stormy night." With a price starting at $65,275 and topping $90,000, the 550i GT represents excess, just not Bulwer-Lytton's wretched excess. Virtually every one of the $1,000-here, $2,500-there options has a reason for being in the car. As with other high end BMWs, there are more than a dozen entertainment, performance, driver assistance, and pampering options. For the comfortably affluent car fanatic, I cannot imagine a better vehicle for hauling four adults and their luggage long distances. An Acura ZDX, Audi Q7, BMW X5 / X6, Porsche Cayenne or Panamera, Lexus LX 570, Cadillac Escalade, or Infiniti QX56 all lack that ultimate luxury of rear seat comfort equal to the front seat.
Great for the Driver
Slide behind the wheel and you're in the best seat in the house. Vision systems help you in front (night vision, parking sonar, swiveling xenon headlamps), in back (backup camera, parking sonar), and to the side (side cameras, lane departure warning, blind spot detection). A $1,300 head-up display (photo left) puts only the most important information in a virtual window at the base of the windshield, reducing driver distraction. The $4,200 sport package helps the car bank through turns and the suspension and drivetrain can be set for comfort, normal, or sport-calibrated ride. So you order the sport package if you want the best ride, not just sportiest, ride.
Navigation comes standard, on a 10.2-inch 1280 x 480 display that can be split to show, say, navigation and entertainment details. The current iDrive cockpit controller is much easier to master. Order the $1,950 premium seats and you get a massage feature that raises and lowers the left and right seat bottom halves just enough to keep your butt from falling asleep. The $1,750 active steering package changes the steering ratio at low speed for easier parking lot maneuvers and the rear wheels also steer slightly, opposite the front wheels at low speed for sharper turns, same direction as the front wheels at high speed for smoother lane changes.
The engine is a 400-hp twin-turbo V8 with an eight-speed automatic transmission (BMW's first). It gets to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and passes most everything on the highway except gas stations. On my mostly highway trip I got 21 mpg and saw 23 mpg level-ground cruising at 70 mph; the EPA rating is 15 mpg city, 21 mph highway, using premium fuel. That's not bad, but the coming 300-hp six will still be cat quick and probably manage 25 mpg loping along the interstate, and you won't get the feeling, "Maybe we should top off the tank," at every bathroom break.
While it's not a hybrid, there is a brake energy regeneration system. The oversize battery is charged primarily by power generated when you apply the brakes. This is part of what BMW calls Efficient Dynamics.

The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo (also referred to as the BMW 5 Series GT) is an executive or mid-size car from BMW. BMW 550i xDrive Gran Turismo was unveiled in Auto China Beijing 2010. Sales of 530d xDrive and 550i xDrive began in June 2010, followed by 535d xDrive and 535i xDrive in September 2010.
The F07 platform of the 5 Series GT provides a vehicle length traditionally found in a BMW 7 Series, but with the headroom found in the BMW X5 crossover SUV. The F07 also features a unique "bi-modal" trunk, similar to the Twin Door concept on the Škoda Superb, which may be opened in a traditional car-like fashion, or the entire hatch may be open in a traditional SUV fashion for larger objects. Autoblog has suggested that similar vehicles include the Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the Lincoln MKT. Edmunds Insideline has suggested that BMW has designed the 5 Series GT as "sedan-style utility" while the BMW X6 fastback crossover SUV (released the year before, in 2008 as a 2009 model) was meant as a "coupe-style utility".
On January 30, 2009, BMW released a video "BMW Concept: Scribble Video". The video was the first public introduction into the thought process behind the design of the progressive activity vehicle series and the upcoming 5 GT.
In the 5 Series GT, there are several optional driver assistance systems:
Adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go Feature
Blind Spot Information System,
Lane departure warning system,
Integral Active Steering (rear wheel steering)
Rear view camera,
Sideview (two cameras in the front bumper that look to the left and right)
Topview (of the two additional cameras in the exterior mirrors, the side-view cameras, reversing camera and sensors from the PDC to create an overall picture of the vehicle and its environment, and show it from the air) and
a speed limit display. For this, a camera will check street signs with speed limits. These are displayed in the speedometer, as well as head-up display.

The term Gran Turismo means big trip and is reserved for the larger road going vehicles. Well the 2012 BMW 5-Series GT is a full-seized luxury crossover SUV that combines the best of both worlds. Based on the 7-Series platform, the 5-Series GT offers plenty or room for passengers along with tons of great luxury features and equipment.

The main difference between these 2 crossovers is the engine offering. The 535 uses a twin-turbo inline 6-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower while the 550 has a twin-turbo V-8 engine that produces 400 horsepower. The BMW 550 GT also has the latest and greatest ZF 8-Speed Transmission. The 550 fuel economy figures are 15 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway, while the 535 gets 18 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.
Both 2012 BMW 5-Series GT models come packed with the latest and greatest from BMW. Tons of technology, safety features, security, and driving systems make the 5-Series a great crossover.

2012 Audi A6 versus BMW 535i review: And the best luxury sedan is...
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new BMW 535i has almost always been the benchmark for all other mid-sized luxury sedans. But for 2012 the all new Audi A6 is taking direct aim at the BMW buyer as well as the 535i. The Audi brings to the table a 310 HP supercharged powerplant, an 8 speed automatic transmission and of course Quattro all-wheel-drive. But to not to be outdone the BMW has all of the same stuff but instead of a supercharged engine it comes with a turbo. So which one is the better car?
