2019 F90 Competition Package - Pick up - Exhaust Video - Pics and Quick Review!

This was the pick up of my F90 M5 Competition from Maranello BMW - and they again did a fantastic job having literally everyone there to meet me at pick up. Jonathan Tam my Sales Exec and Newel Desouza - The Dealership Manager went above and beyond to put an incredible deal together for me. They helped me follow this build every step of the way. It was a truly amazing experience. Maranello delivered.

Here are some of the preliminary pictures...some video - an inside video of the exhaust sound and review of my first hours with the car.

The car was not washed as my Detailer wanted no swirls lol.

A preliminary review will be the next post.

The initial review of the car was easy to write...it's awesome!

I have been fortunate to drive the BMW M competitors and I can say that this car just...fits my personality compared to its competition. It is such a complete, all round car. Fun to drive and luxurious. Straight quick and such a solid chassis for road course.

The looks were fairly unassuming, but I was surprised how much the blacked out parts made a difference. I wasn't happy about the Pirelli's, but I guess it's an excuse to "replace" them shall we say...

Driving: the cars brakes are pretty impressive - and this is coming from a C7Z carbon ceramic brake owner. The car is firm, but still smooth and can even be soft when in comfort. Acceleration is impressive - even before "break in" and likely being on 91 octane from the Dealer. The chassis is TIGHT. In full on Sport plus mode - the car is immensely stable and capable. I have my two M buttons as polar opposites and I find that very useful for business driving and pleasure.
Exhaust is impressive - although still muted in the cabin. Outside - is a different story, as I scared more than a few people with it lol...

Electronic and fit and finish are top notch - and the SEATS...oh my goodness - they are GOOD! I have mine fit to my body using the bolster controls...

There will be many trips to the track for real testing - and a full professional review of this car in the coming weeks after break in is properly concluded.

Stay Tuned!

This will be the professional video that will showcase the F90 M5 CP...you can see the race with the M550ix at 22:23 - and it isn't pretty lol...

This time the BMW will be taking on something much more powerful...stay tuned!

Awesome! Is this the dark or the lighter carbon trim? I guess this is the dark but can you confirm? Thanks!
