Lightbulb M5 Due? / Which way to go?

Just called dealer who said M5 production begins Sept. So, delivery out here around Christmas... No Pricing yet on the system; Will send it when it arrives.

I'm trying to decide between this, the 550, and a Panamera, which I really like. I know BMWs really well, and never owned a Porsche. A couple of big issue out here in the wilds of West Texas is that fact that:1) Porsche dealer network doesn't provide any dealers closer than 330+ miles away, not to mention free "maintenance" ... and 2) the Panamera doesn't have a spare tire. If that's not a big deal read this:
So, if you get one, it's all over, for that day or a lot worse, depending on a rare-tire availability.

I'm sure the comparison will be interesting between the two.

And, has anyone negotiated a deal on ordering a new M5?
