Rodger, sorry about the delayed response, I am in Boston on business. You are too polite and politically correct with "little sold out" comment. For me, it is a blatant disregard to what BMW enthusiasts want from the Bavarian car company! I don't care how much turbo you put in it, naturally aspirated with that high revving engine is totally irreplaceable!
Mark my word, 20 years from now, E60 M5's will become collectible items.
Rodger, I would really contact you with issues for my car, I need to resort to an educated person like you.
