A M5 lightly optioned, unless it's used will be $ 97,000.00. A M5 optioned the way most people would want one will be $ 105,000.00 and up msrp. Maybe you can get it new for $ 100,000.00. So your difference would be approximately $ 19,000 to $ 20,000.00. Now start adding up insurance and registration for less torque and 30 more horsepower. Like I said you can do alot with $ 20,000 to $ 25,000.00 dollars. In my opinion x drive cancels out LSD.
What you're forgetting is that every penny you pay for modifications will not only go down the drain on resale, it will probably lower the value.
