This is my second M5 and have been waiting for 3 years for this one. It was worth the wait! Awesome car, tremendous ability to adjust performance. Great handling, great feel, a wolf in sheeps clothing. Looks and feels great during the ride to church with the family and performs equally well side by side with the viper or 911 on the interstate on the way back home. SMG takes some getting used to, but once you decide how you want to use it; it's relatively smooth and functional.
Performance flexibility, adaptive seating, wheels look awesome and body styling. The NAV system much more user friendly.
IDrive is still cumbersome, increase gas tank size.
