Just about to order mine. Anyone have any thoughts/research on ceramic brakes (are they necessary if you aren't hitting the track?) or 20" (besides look and harsher ride, are they much better performance wise?). I've also read a little bit about the night vision - anyone that lives in wooded areas with one? (I live in MT and have a ton of deer on my road).

The BOY is currently down... too many people building it i guess!

Ceramic brakes for $8,700??? Am I reading that right? I'm sure the damn thing will stop with standard brakes, sheesh.

Hey... just like the others, either they moved it (which I don't see any info on the M5 other than 'Explore') or they disabled it...

you might want to edit your article.

That's about right. The ceramic brakes on the much more expensive Porsche Panamera is around $8k as well. Not that there is a silver lining in paying that much, but at least you won't have to replace your rotors.

Yeah, it seems as though they may not have wanted this to be live yet. Pricing for packages is still in the original post and we'll keep an eye on this for when it comes back online.

The folks in Germany must worship ceramic or something. Even the ceramic controls are $650 for a few knobs and bezels here and there. It must have something to do with sculpting the shapes, I dunno.

I agree with you. That's that special ceramic. Comes from the protected mines, hidden by the protect forest, in the protected valley of the hidden mountains... lol. I don't get it, but I can imagine the profit margin of a client buying that option.

base price of the M6 is $106.1 - base for the M5 is $89.9 ($16200 diff - ?????)

wudda get with the M6, maybe a 4 year supply of German Beer (brown flip-top bottles, Wurst, Hard Rolls and Mustard) ?

IF I was to buy (and I'm not) the M5 would be my ONLY consideration

oh, and while on the "building" subject, why is it that BMW won't come out with some exciting colors for their vehicles ?

remember the modder, on one of these forums, who went YELLOW - car looked great !

what about the Fire Orange ?
