Hi Dylan,

If you're worried about the cost of gas, wait until you see what repairing a 550 costs! Unless you plan on maintaining this car yourself, I suggest you put aside a sizeable "rainy day fund" for the inevitable repairs before considering any mods.

Very good advice. The cost of maintaining my 2005 545 6M with 338K kms runs about 3000 C$ a year. If your car is an automatic, then add 500 $ to that. That is still less expensive than leasing a same performance car. BTW, the N62 is a very fuel efficient engine considering its power.
