Thoughts on current/future Ms discussion

You have ably explained why this lifelong 5 Series V8 owner (E39, E60 and F10) chose the E63 S over the F10 M5 for my next car. If M5 had AWD I likely would have chosen it.

I did. My last car was 2009 E60 550i and my current car is a 2012 550xi. The F10 550 is dramatically faster than the E60 550. It is not even close. The new one is in an entirely different class...

I see the two biggest changes in the next gen M5 as less weight and AWD as an option or standard. I do not think we will see a dramatic increase in power from the F10 M5.

I have. Most difficult car to get into and out of I have ever experienced. Not for me at all. But kudos to BMW for the car's amazing looks and technology.

I had the natural brown leather in my 2009 E60 550i. Loved it. The cinnamon brown was the closet color to it that I could get in the F10 550. But I have grown to like it more than the natural...

The deal was 15% below MSRP and not 15% below invoice. Still an outstanding deal.

Any Must Have Options?

So true. My F10 550 is my third V8 5 Series (had E39 540i and E60 550i) and BMW took away the driving dynamics, sounds and road feel in the F10. My 550 is super fast after a Dinan Stage 2 tune but...

The car does not have an automatic transmission and its associated torque converter. It is an automated manual transmission. Hence it did not creep forward.
