In the past couple weeks I sold my 2017 M3, and bought a CPO 2018 M550i. Wanted something more comfortable for the highway, but still with 400+ horsepower. Already bought some new wheels for it, the 19" 7 Series wheels which are shown in these pics. (First post since 2019!)

Yes, if I remember correctly it became standard for 2017. Ride quality was fine, but obviously about what you’d expect from an M3. Road noise was also a bit much on the highway, with the big tires, and the reduced sound deadening. The M550 is an order of magnitude more comfortable and quieter, and still does 0-60 in under 4 seconds.Nice. Did you have adaptive suspension on your M3? If not, how would you rate the stiffness?
you'll love this car! Had an S60RD way back - it was great.Just picked up this 2018 V60 T6 R-Design w/Sport & Polestar Package. I was in the market for a wagon and Volvo was never really on my radar. I cross shopped the Audi A4 Wagon, VW Sportwagen, BMW 328xi and 330xi wagon and to my surprise, really ended up liking the Volvo. It beat each option I drove but lacked the tech (large touchscreen ect) - did not bother me. I test drove a 2020 and 2021 V60 and V90 and preferred the driving dynamics of the pre-refresh MUCH better. This particular one is quite rare from what I can find. Currently no other 2018 V60 T6 R-Design w/Polestar Factory tune is available in Canada. Quite quick as well- 307hp/317tq through the Supercharged & Turbo Charged 2.0 4cyl. I am getting 32mpg to boot!
Short term review coming soon.
I hear the lease pricing is astronomical on these
