I drove my E39 M5, E92 M3 and F13 650i through multiple Michigan winters, on winter tires, with no issues at all. I intend to do the same with my F10 M5.

Going from 2012 650i to a 2015 M5, not M6, my rate will only increase $80 per year. It must have something to do with the 6 series repair costs and parts availability. Add the M performance to it...

^+1. I agree. I did have 4 injectors replaced before the recall, but never had the major malfunction. Mine has never been an oil drinker either, so I think I'll just wait it out until the M5 comes...

I know it's not secret, that's why I used quotation marks.

Now I understand. So you did order the 4M5 option code which takes individual extended leather to the full level, at twice the price. :yikes: I wonder why they don't show these things on the...

Interesting. Our engines are designed for 10% ethanol, so I think I would go for the higher octane for the improved knock resistance and potential extra 10 or so HP. Perhaps use the pure petrol...
