from a performance standpoint? nothing. i miss not having to do any maintenance. lol i liked the IS for what it was, but i went to a bigger car. When i went to the 550, i got an extra 150hp, more interior room and trunk space. I was originally gonna get a 535, but my friend was selling it at a steal to me. i ran across a bunch of unplanned maintenance earlier this year, so i fixed it all up and sold it.

I am now in a 2014 gs350 f sport.

550i...
