The 535i trims ride on 18-inch, double-spoke alloy wheels with run-flat all-season tires, while the 550i trims get 18-inch, star-spoke light-alloy wheels, also with run-flat tires. There is also a less comprehensive Sport Package, as well as the option of a 6-speed manual on the 535i and 550i. Two balance shafts work to cancel any untoward high-rpm shakes or four-cylinder groans. Much slower off the start than the 300hp 700 lbs lighter Audi - should have gotten the V-8.
