Not a BMW 5 series killer...

ReviewWhile the exhaust notes are a delightful symphony, the suspension and torque steer remove any fantasies of carving a canyon and putting the whup on any German engineered product. First impression: throaty growl stimulates adrenal gland...then ride on the street is like drinking sour milk. Suspension is so soft that the front emd bottoms out at speed over moderate undulations in the road. Feels like floating in a raft in the pool. Torque steer nearly planted me in the car in the next lane on the freeway. Under hard acceleration, it is not unlike flying a helicopter: don't even think of releasing the controls! Constant input requirement drowns the fun of the acceleration.
Best FeaturesG meter on info page. Cross drilled rotors. Exhaust note.
Worst FeaturesHUD not readable w/ polarized sun glasses. Get Franz and Helmut to dial in your suspension; it is set up for 30mph corners and hard braking nearly folds the car in two.
