M5 ED 11/5 12 hour compliance photo

Took delivery of my F10 M5 this morning. It is definitely a much better car than my E60 M5 and better sprung than my 550i M Sport. The engine is very responsive and smooth. If McLaren made a 4 door MP4-12C, this would be it. We did a quick drive over to the Dolomites and thoroughly enjoyed the twisties to the top. The Alpina Dolomites resort is amazing. More pics to come shortly. Excuse the iphone 5 pics.

Big thanks to Greg Poland again at Pacific BMW!

Congrats!

How was it like driving in the snow with the M5? I assume you got snow tires on...

Congrats, beautiful ride! Will you be using the M5 as a daily driver? I'm debating going from my 550 to an M5 for my next daily driver. Thoughts? Have a great trip.

Thank you. The M5 will be my new daily driver to replace the 550i. It's going to be excellent. The gas mileage is very good (seeing about 23 mpg) and the large gas tank is very nice.

visit to the M Studio In Garching. Saw both the new M3 and M4 zooming around. Looks very wide in person.




the best parking in Italy! The Alpina Dolomites resort is spectacular.

Congratulations! That is a beautiful M5 with perfectly coordinated interior/paint; tasty!

Nice pics too! I'll be in Munich and Bad Homburg in 3 weeks but sadly... with a rental 328xi
