Dude! Great write up! I'm in the middle if doing a 5,000 mile trip across the states right now, but I'm taking my time and doing a lot of scenic driving and sight seeing. I agree with you. Right now I am kicking myself in the head for not ordering the Drivers Assistance Package! It's not absolutely essential, but it sure would make long distance road trips a heck of a lot easier! Maybe if I ever get another M5, I'll order the DA package.
WTF is "Singapore Gray Metallic"? Whats the difference between that and Malaysian Silver Grey?
