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.

is a hard-core Jeep enthusiast. So, what's his take on the 2013 Jeep
Wrangler Unlimited Sahara? Right off the lot, the Wrangler Unlimited Sahara

the JK-platformed beast, you could drive out of the show room and go rock
So as not to return the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara broken and
maimed to Jeep Canada, we go soft-roading instead.

innovations designed to enhance driving pleasure -- the BMW 5 Series
contains all the signature ingredients of a best-selling model at the
premium end of the executive segment. Indeed, consistently rising sales

Series Gran Turismo -- whose luxurious character has earned it a unique
status in the segment -- have been sold worldwide since the launch of the
current generation. And now another new chapter in this impressive success
story is poised to begin. Precise modifications to the cars' design, new
engine variants and innovative additions to the range of available
equipment as well as BMW ConnectedDrive technology all raise the appeal of

2010 BMW 550i GT Gran Turismo Review
Sophisto Grey Brilliant Effect Metallic 2010 BMW 550i Gran Turismo with
Navigation, Sport Package, Luxury Rear Seating Package, Convenience
Package, Cold Weather Package, Camera Package, and Satellite Radio. With
its unmistakable shape, world-class BMW engineering, and fantastic
features, this is the car that anyone concerned with comfort, looks, and
performance will love to drive. And further, as a 2010 model it has a long
and fun life ahead of it with you behind the wheel. Let's take a closer
look at your new 550i GT.
EXTERIOR: The exterior of the Gran Turismo is coated in unique and stunning
SOPHISTO GREY BRILLIANT EFFECT METALLIC paint. As the name implies, the
paint color has a brilliant sparkle, especially in the sunlight. It is able
to achieve this effect with no detractions because of scrapes or unsightly
scratches. BMW is known for making powerful and reliable engines, and the
monster under the hood of this 550i GT is no exception. Your new car boasts
a 4.4L DI twin-turbocharged V8 engine
with 400 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of
torque. As you would expect of any BMW bearing the 550i badge, you really
feel the power when your foot presses the gas pedal. All of this ability
sets your 550i at 21 highway MPG. You'll love the driving dynamics control
with its three different settings: normal, sport, or sport+ depending on
how you want your ride to feel. As mentioned before, this beautiful car is
equipped with the sport package which includes 20" sport wheels, wrapped in
low profile Goodyear tires (in excellent condition). The auto-dimming power
mirrors are in great working condition, as are the rain-sensing windshield
wipers which turn on automatically when it starts to rain. Xenon headlights
outfit the front of the car as do halogen fog lights to help you see no
matter the weather. You will love the bi-modal power trunk which can be
opened in two different ways: either as a hatchback or completely open as a
trunk. Don't forget that since this is a 2010 model BMW, it still has the
remainder of its four year/50,000 mile basic and powertrain warranties good
until December 2013.
INTERIOR: If you think your family room is comfortable, it's about to get
some serious competition. The interior of the 550i is decked in very nice
BLACK leather upholstery complemented by wood trim. There are no unpleasant
odors in the vehicle. The 20-way power sport front multi-contour bucket
seats feel comfortable and and can be adjusted to fit you perfectly. The
rear seats are even mulit-adjustable. To also assist you with that is
tri-zone automatic climate control with auto air circulation and other
great functions. As even further help, the car has the cold weather package
which not only gives you a heated steering wheel, but also heated front and
Our goal is to make sure the overall condition of the car is as close to
new as possible. This means a full detail that includes polishing any light
scratches and professionally touching up chips. All dings are
professionally removed. While our cars are close-to-new, keep in mind that
they are pre-owned and may show some signs of wear. We will be more than
happy to go over the car panel-by-panel with you on the phone for extra
details. Also, think of the great savings you will have with this purchase.
The MSRP for this car new just a little while ago was over $82,000 with its
great features! Now, a few short months later, you can invest in a
pre-owned car in great shape for much less. Enjoy the best of automotive
comfort without compromising performance with your new 2010 BMW 550i Gran
BMW X-Drive 4X4 System
BMW X-Drive 4X4 System
Get the book and DVD here:
The BMW all-wheel drive or 4X4 system, called X-Drive, ensures that the
vehicle has the best traction all the time, improves agility and keeps you
safely on lane.
When parking, the system reacts to the need for high manoeuvrability at low
speed, by opening the clutch completely so the powertrain functions
optimally. Acting virtually instantaneously and in a manner as to go
virtually unnoticed by the vehicle's driver. X-Drive can direct up to 100%
of drive forces to one axle and allow the driver to start up quickly, even
on slippery surfaces or steep hills. X-Drive directs all power to the axles
with the greatest wheel traction.
X-Drive is the all time, all-wheel drive or 4X4 system from BMW. Under
normal circumstances, it distributes driver power between the front and
rear axles in a nominal 45-55 ratio, and changes this figure depending on
when the road surface or overall driving conditions change. X-Drive allows
power to be split between the front and rear axles through use of a
multiplate clutch located between the gearbox and the drive shaft. This
setup allows X-Drive vehicles to split power in virtually any way it
pleases. Torque can be transferred to the front wheels via electronically
controlled multi plate clutch that is located in the transfer case. X-Drive
does not have a center differential. Most of the time, the clutch is
partially locked and power is transferred to both axles in proportion 45-55
front to rear. The power distribution can be altered to continuously
variable levels from 50-50 to 0-100.
