Evaluating Frozen Grey M5. Any Photo Requests / Questions?

Hey everybody,

I've got a 2012 Frozen Grey F10 M5 for the next couple of days (full review coming in 2 weeks), so this is your chance for any specific photo requests, questions, etc. Just let me know if there's anything particular you wanna know or want to have a photo of and I'll try to answer/post in the coming days.

For now, here's a teaser photo:

Your honest opinion of the matte paint after two weeks. Would you choose matte or gloss for your personal car.

I haven't seen one yet. There's some space in the center console where my sun glasses are sitting right now, though.

Great question, I'll keep it in mind. So far, I like the matte paint more than I thought but let's wait a couple more days as it collects more dust/dirt.


Best regards,

I gotta find the complete list but from what is noticeable I can tell the following details and options:

Frozen Grey Metallic
19" wheels

Full Black Merino Leather incl. Alcantara headliner
Piano Finish Black Trim
M Multifunctional Seats
Head-up display
Comfort Access
Nav Professional
Bluetooth
Hifi Sound System Pro
Lane Departure Warning
Active Blind Spot Detection
Speed Limit Info
Side and Top View Cameras
Rear View Camera
Soft-close automatic doors
Power Tailgate

I might have missed a thing or two.


Best regards,
south

What do you think of the piano black trim? A lot of people complain about the high maintenance and ease of scratching, but the look (I hear) is awesome. Can you post some pictures of the trim? Thanks.

Yes. As a neutral observer tell us what you think of the BMW Professional Sound.
