Mein Auto: 2007 M5 Space Gray
I just bought my '07 M5 from a BMW dealer, trading in my X5 Diesel. Fortunately the GM of the dealership is an M fanatic and owner. He took me for a detailed test drive explaining the various nuances of "everyday" v "M" driving. You will learn to shift smoothly in "granny" mode. My wife loves it. Another post extolled the high RPM nature of the V10. This ride does not come on until you're past 5000. If I'm on the interstate and need to perform an aggressive pass from 65 or so, I drop it into third and let 'r rip! You wanna smoke the tires? (not economically recommended) Select program 7 in "M" mode, available only if you deselect DSC. Hold onto your hat and advise your passenger to prepare for a change of briefs!
