Cool Just took delivery of our E60 M5...(Indianapolis Red...Pictures inside)

I managed to get some pictures off today...the car is awesome to drive...I really have never had a thing for SMG, but this one has changed my mind...to an extent. Anyway, here are the pictures...please excuse how bad they are...I was slightly occupied...

Also, on paper I wasn't really wild about the Indianapolis Red...but in person, I really do like it.

David's in Naples.

I rode in this very car today. It's not broken in yet, but even with some teasing bursts of throttle below 5500 rpm, this car sounds and goes like a full blown, high end sports car. Yet it has four doors and comfortable room for four adults. Though I supported the idea of a 6 speed, it's clear that the 7 speed was built around this car and this engine...SMG may make a convert of me, yet.

Bottom line, I'm convinced that the M5 is one of the best all around cars in any segment and any price range available today.

I have to say you hit every point there...Jon, just wait till the break-in is over and we will have some great fun up at the auto-x track...and dare I say it...Sebring...

Seems like Santa left your present a little too early(probably due to its size) than the rest of us. Anyways congrats on the new M she is a beauty, and yes we expect a full review and more pics after break in. God your lucky!!

Man...I LOVE Sebring...I was at the 53rd last year and I plan on being at every single one from now on. I actually have probably 4-5 friends coming up with me this year; let me know if you want to meet up.

I might be meeting you there for this one. Sebring is still a long drive from Tallahassee, though.
