Traded 2011 750 for 2016 M5

Was waiting to grab a 2016 750, but I don't want the LWB which is the only version now. My last 7's were SWB. I did look at S550, really beautiful car, but I wasn't ready to leave the BMW brand yet. This is my 5th BMW and the M5 was always on the bucket list. Figured since my birthday is next week, let me pull the trigger. Dealer had in inventory in exactly the color and option combo I wanted. Must have been divine intervention. Just picked up a day ago , but I love it already. Out with the old, in with the new.

Nice, I was exactly in the same boat, was waiting for the new 7, looked at the S. And since my birthday just passed I figure I want my first M so I grabbed a x6m! M cars are amazing! I can enough driving and power more and move back to 7 or S later

You got the beast! Congrats!

I agree with the L issue on the 7 which I just shopped for a month, and went with the i after test driving both.

For the first time in my life, I said to my wife, I don't want the extra inches. She was surprised

This is one gorgeous car. I bet that interior is really nice. Please take some pics when you get a chance.

love the stitching on the steering wheel. Hope the NYC streets don't kill your 20s! The potholes here in Chicago decimated 4 of my 20s within a year. Got two flats at one time, TWICE! And I had non-RFTs. Never again.

I can't tell you how many tires I replaced on my 650 and then my 750. I'm surprised the insurance company did not drop me. lol This is my first time without run flats. There is tire filler/repair kit in the trunk that is supposed to get you enough miles to presumably make it to a dealer. As much as the RFT's gave a rough ride, at least I was able to keep it moving until I got to the dealer. We will see how this goes. Plan on driving my Lexus truck during the rough winter months.

Yes the stitching is nice.

Lol near full tank also showing 250 miles range!

I guess I'm so used to see my 7 showing 360+ at full tank, and it's little depressing to see a full tank on a M gives so little range.
And the best I managed so far on 80% highway, is 13.8 (that's driving in comfort mode since car is not break in yet ) What's your gas mileage on the M5?

When I first filled up mine, it shows 309, but after 10 mins on the highway it dropped to 250-260
I can't imagine once the car breaks in and I start driving it little more aggressively.

How does the difference in power feel from your old V8 in the 7?

Limited range was a huge issue with the V10 E60 M5. So-so now too?

Power from M is way more than the 130hp difference suggests. It shocked me when the first time I put mine in sport+ mode, and I used to drive in sport+ all the time in my 750. If the 7 is a calm muscle man, the M is a crazy heavyweight boxer XD
And I would expect the M5 to pack more punch than my x6m since it's 700 lbs lighter despite the 60lbs torque.

Next time I really wanna try out the next gen M5/6, eventually I will move back to 7/S but I wanna have some fun for now.

This car has consistent effortless power at any and all speeds. Feels much different and much more powerful than my last 7. I had some trepidation with the dual clutch until I test drove it. I had the SMG on a 06 650i m sport. That tranny left a lot to be desired. This car is wickedly fast and powerful with little to no effort. I haven't even used the sports option yet. Can't imagine what that is going to be like. The one issue, not a complaint; this car feels every imperfection in the road. That is taking a little getting used to especially being in NYC. BTW with the competition package the car gets an extra 15hp. I'm at 575 instead of 560. Not too sure how much of a difference it makes, but its there.
