Mein Auto: 2014 BMW M5
New Owner of a 2014 M5 in Singapore Grey

Just turned in my 335IS convertible lease and was planning on getting a Porsche Macan Turbo. I had a deposit down since February. I wanted more space in the back for my kids and a little more practicality with a better ride. I was getting anxious for a new car and when BMW had the Pull ahead lease program ( up to 6 months of a lease can be turned in), I took the CP and non-CP M5 out for a drive. I felt the CP drove slightly better for the numerous reasons posted here, and they had the color I wanted in the Comp pack car. My M5 will be my DD and will put 15k miles a year in the car. It is pretty loaded with Comp pack, executive pack, LED pack, Drivers assistance pack, Bang and Olufsen sound system and black full leather. Only have put 150 miles on it but love it so far! The Macan will have to wait for a few more years now. Here is some iPhone pics.

Beautiful ride - I think you will have hard-time going back to Porsche, except if it is a 991 Turbo ...

I could not be happier trading my 13 Cayenne GTS with the M5 - did you buy your at BMW of Dallas?

Moritz BMW. Bought 3 cars from them even though BMW of Dallas is closer to my house (Lakewood). They are just easier to negotiate with

Agree - BMW of Dallas not easy to deal with. Bought mine from Classic, know that they are not easy either, but I have been buying cars from them since 99.

But, I must say I had a great experience buying the Porsche at Park Place back in August last year (dealt with Jim Lanom - great guy), can not say the same about their Service department though ...

It's fine. Will only miss it on the best days, which honestly is not enough in Dallas. Too hot or too cold. Not much in between. Got about 2-3 awesome months for it.

I'm a Texas resident and went to So-Cal to get my M5 deal. Gotta go where the dealers are willing to play it straight. Texas is not that kind of state... transactional relationships only

Nice ride! Good choice of color.
I have a '13 M5 in SG as well. I just installed the IND cosmetic package so the grills are wrapped in black and the front reflectors and side markers are painted SG to match the car. No more chrome.
Congrats!

Congrats on the new M5. Nicely equipped with CP package. You will love it. I have had mine 1 year and love it. Although if I were buying right now I would have gone with new M3. $ 30,000.00 CHEAPER and better performance.

Lol... Here he is again...lol... touting the M3 to a guy who just bought an M5. You should realize, it seems to the average reader that you have some kind of agenda.

Thx guys. Still loving it. Smooth ride and power when needed. Love the B&O on my daily commute. We rarely take the wife's X5 anymore with the kids. Always taking the M5 now!

Not any kind of agenda. As I said earlier he has a very nice M5. Nice color and nicely equipped. The M5 has always been my favorite M car until now. If I was looking to buy a 4 door M car right now, it would be the new M3, espcially at $ 30,000.00 cheaper equally equipped and better performance. Again I am not touting the gentleman at all, his M5 is awesome, just not what I would have bought right now with the new M3 available. Again the M3 is a legend,has been for years and it is bmw's best M car, always has been and always will be.

sorry FTC, the M3 is too small and isn't as luxurious inside. You are talking to people that value space, luxury, and looks over the smaller M3. We get it. You like the price/performance of the M3. I had a 3 series before this, and won't be going back to that size until the kids are gone

M3 due in oz in 4 days. Expensive considering NO: heads up display, no extended leather, no tv, no Internet, no led adaptive lights, no rear sun blinds, no lane change warning, no merino leather but most importantly NO DEALS on price or finance. M5 has it all. Porsche Macan 3.6 turbo is fun indeed, but small and no nothing! And a 9 month wait.
