M5 ED- picked up 7/18, left Bremerhaven on the Toscana 8/4

I had an outstanding ED trip picking up our Singapore grey M5 (2nd ED). I grew up in Germany and scheduled a road trip around the ED to visit friends and family.

I screwed up the pics at the Welt inadvertently having a color filter on my phone. The pick-up itself went very smoothly.

Munich pick-up 7/18; drop off 7/25. 2300 km driven.

Munich - Koblenz - Hamburg - Berlin - Munich

The car left Bremerhaven on 8/4 on the Toscana with an ETA in New York 8/19

Driving the M5 on German roads was such a blast. What a powerful but refined performer.

To experience longer stretches of unlimited Autobahn I can recommend the section from Berlin to Munich. I left very early in the morning on a Saturday (less trucks on the road). My overall gas mileage suffered a bit, but it was so worth it.

Waiting is tough now. If I'm lucky though the big M will arrive sooner than I had anticipated.

Gruss and happy driving

If you didn't say anything about the color filter I would have assumed you instagrammed them! Congrats and the M5 is the dream!

Drop off Munich 7/25
Arrival at port in New York 8/19
Released from the port yesterday (8/26) - expecting delivery this weekend

Thanks to Alex Dytko (board sponsor)! He has been so efficient - making the process seamless. It's my 2nd ED with Alex and I highly recommend him.

Gorgeous! Just gorgeous!

Congrats on your new acquisition.

Could I beg you to post more pics? That is the exact color combination that I'm looking towards for my new car.

Picked up the car last night. I'm very happy with the color combo.

Here are a few (evening) iphone pics. Now need some daylight and time to take proper photos.
