Beautiful car! How are all of your electronics you brought along working out? Are the sim cards you ordered doing well?

The seats are a lot nicer... first car to give me that same feeling of thrust when I floor it. Everyone says that M5 is really heavy.. well so is the B-1. There is something visceral about both large vehicles angrily accelerating faster than something there size really should...

LOL... you know things got serious when you compare your car to the B-1.

Here's a quick vid of my autobahn run in the rain after break-in service:
