It's a perfect day to day car. It has a dual personality. Easy going in base settings but a Monster in M Mode.
You will find it easy to drive in traffic and to the supermarket. But put it on a highway or on the side of a mountain and it will come alive like a beast.
I had a 550i before. Initially I found the suspension ride quality to be more firm and less smooth. But after 4000 miles I find the M5 very smooth and I couldn't imagine wanting a softer setting than comfort mode. So you do adapt to the car too.
The handling blows away any non M car.
