2013 M5 (US) Option Opinions

Set to order mine, have a few questions:

Anyone have firm date on delivery? I hear September. Has anyone done European Delivery, do you get car sooner (albeit in Germany, probably takes a few weeks longer to get to the States had it been shipped direct).

19" or 20" - i drive aggressively (live in the mountains). Are 20" superior in performance? (I know they are superior in harsher ride and better looks!) Tire prices look similar between 19 and 20's...

Ceramic Brakes - if i'm not doing track time, do i need them (need is a relative word here)? I'm guessing i can't put my 18" M6 winter tires on if i have ceramic brakes... anyone know?

Night Vision - anyone have experience in wooded areas? I care about people, but i care more about not hitting a deer.

Cohiba Brown w/ Singapore Grey and piano black trim - thoughts? (I like the sliverstone in my M6 - i like it, but don't know if i want two cars with it). Anybody know difference between "full leather marino" and "fine-grain Merino leather" besides $5k...
