I bought the car special order from Germany with a 6 speed manual.
The car has been exactly what I've been expecting, sporty, spacious and with all the luxury you expect with a BMW.
The car has been exceptionally reliable with 60k miles without any mechanical or electrical issues.
I only wish NA would have the choice for a M5 6 spd Wagon.
I am quite sad to see the wagon discontinued when the GT model came to Canada.
The car is a perfect family mover.
Handling and the seats with the sports package are the most worthy option I've chosen.
It comes withe the sports seats, M steering wheel, upgrades rims, trim kit/skirt, fog lights.
other main reason for the purchase was that this car was the only high end wagon/large car that had a option for a manual transmission.
With the addition of the sport package a roof rack cannot be used.
This is typically not a problem since it is a wagon with plenty of space.
The pass through allows for skiis but will eliminate the option of a 5 passenger.
