Good catch, I accidentally picked the European E60 M5, so the E60 M5 was actually 44lbs heavier than the 550i in North America. The F10 M5 is still 375lbs heavier than the E60 M5 in North America. ...

That's $400 more than we pay for our two cars with $500 deductibles and a 500K CSL. Although we might get the good clean country living discount. ;)
