That's good advice.
Oh yea, it's going to be a great car; Probably need a car in the next 5 months... it looks like all are saying M5 arrives next spring. I may be able to find a great deal on a Panamera as '11s are rolling to '12.

The M5 will have RFTs, right? I'd feel a lot better if I could at least get them on the Panamera in the future. The other alternative is to lug a spare around

By the way, the M5 will not have a spare either if it continues the M tradition. You'll end up with an M-Mobility kit.
