Thanks for your report. The launch is so critical to the ET and I understand your reluctance to abuse your new car. I wonder if there is a way to improve the launch characteristics of the M5 without compromising its handling on a twisty road? Probably not compatible rear suspension configurations. What sort of MPH was your friend turning?
