I saw an M5 at my dealership in Turnersville and it was sold at MSRP, they did not discount it. I wish I could do more than just drool and dream.....................

Ferrari Enzo 60-0: 110 ft
Porsche GT3 60-0: 119 ft
MB C230 60-0: 130 ft
Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was referring to most BMWs and not including the Ms with my comments. I feel cars with ZSP should be more performance oriented and part of the equation should be better brakes and LSD. I know that this a thread about the M5 but Stuka's comments hit home.

He is correct in his assessment that the M Models have lousy calipers relative to the opposition.

There's gotta be some deal between ATE and BMW. I can't think of another reason why BMW hasn't moved over to calipers that resemble anything that comes out of Stuttgart.
