My only complaint is that during very cold weather (below freezing), it seems to 'screech' but goes away quickly once it's warmed up.
Confirmed. It is a little bit "chatty" when the outside temp is below 35 (until it warms up). Parking it in the (unheated) garage doesn't seem to improve it either.
If you haven't driven a GTR, then you don't know how good you got it. Performance and (quiet) luxury in the M5 is so much better. At the end of the day, it is still a hi perf machine with moving parts.
