What color combination are you ordering your M5 in?

MTDavid 05-03-2012 02:27 PM

Just about to order mine. Anyone have any thoughts/research on ceramic brakes (are they necessary if you aren't hitting the track?) or 20" (besides look and harsher ride, are they much better performance wise?). I've also read a little bit about the night vision - anyone that lives in wooded areas with one? (I live in MT and have a ton of deer on my road).

The BOY is currently down... too many people building it i guess!

Eh they removed it.

Ceramic brakes for $8,700??? Am I reading that right? I'm sure the damn thing will stop with standard brakes, sheesh.

ArtchredTTU 05-08-2012 08:23 AM

Ya 9k for brakes, thats not the worst part... Just imagine the cost to replace them XD... No thanks

mwagner1 05-08-2012 09:10 PM

Uhhh...as of 11:09 PM (CST) there is still no BYO for the new M5....am I missing something???

Cheers

Hey... just like the others, either they moved it (which I don't see any info on the M5 other than 'Explore') or they disabled it...

you might want to edit your article.

That's about right. The ceramic brakes on the much more expensive Porsche Panamera is around $8k as well. Not that there is a silver lining in paying that much, but at least you won't have to replace your rotors.

pix335i 05-09-2012 12:34 PM

Yeah, it seems as though they may not have wanted this to be live yet. Pricing for packages is still in the original post and we'll keep an eye on this for when it comes back online.

The folks in Germany must worship ceramic or something. Even the ceramic controls are $650 for a few knobs and bezels here and there. It must have something to do with sculpting the shapes, I dunno.

I agree with you. That's that special ceramic. Comes from the protected mines, hidden by the protect forest, in the protected valley of the hidden mountains... lol. I don't get it, but I can imagine the profit margin of a client buying that option.

The build tool is going live again - http://www.bmwusa.com/standard/conte...modelcode=135G

Interesting, it appears there is no gas guzzle tax & ED MSRP is $83,665.

.
base price of the M6 is $106.1 - base for the M5 is $89.9 ($16200 diff - ?????)

wudda get with the M6, maybe a 4 year supply of German Beer (brown flip-top bottles, Wurst, Hard Rolls and Mustard) ?

IF I was to buy (and I'm not) the M5 would be my ONLY consideration

MI55LE 05-18-2012 08:01 AM

oh, and while on the "building" subject, why is it that BMW won't come out with some exciting colors for their vehicles ?

remember the modder, on one of these forums, who went YELLOW - car looked great !

what about the Fire Orange ?

pix335i 05-24-2012 03:46 PM

This is back live again in case anyone wants to go price out their new M5.
