CP M5 is not that bad at all in terms of ride quality. Comfort is more than enough. The sport+ in it is like sport in my M3 and comfort in my M3 is like sport in the M5. I wouldn't make a big deal...

I highly doubt this is true. Allocation is extremely tight, they are not going to do this.

Not to mention, nobody can predict the future and information like this wouldn't be available 3 months in...

Smile My review of F80 M3 and how it compares to E90 M3 and F10 M5

Mike,

We are all very excited, but you have to give us more than this. Show us the boost log from the dyno, that will prove that you did what you are saying.

You are paying about 2.5-3k over invoice or 2k off MSRP. Not bad for a new model car where many people are paying sticker plus.

Also the lease numbers are ok, no markup or money down. However...

My insurance went from $1450 to $800 when I switched from M5 to F80 M3. Also gas bill went from $450/month to $300/month. Just gas and insurance savings alone is $250/month!:)

Be careful, dealers can even tell you high DMV fees, then roll them into the cap cost.

FTC,

Are you just trolling or outright ignorant:)

- Per BMWUSA, M5 does 0-60 in 4.2s, M3 does it in 3.9. Unofficially magazines got M5 in 3.7s with a "1 foot rollout". Big difference between 1...
