You should grab a few drinks, chill out, relax and don't do anything silly ....

In what way(s) was it underwhelming? Just wondering - not planning to switch to the E63 at this time...

Really like the styling of the new E class, but I found it really difficult to tell the difference between the e63 and e550, other people may say the same about the m5 and its younger brother as well, but I found it particularly so for the MB line. Power was linear and adequate in a straight line, which was really the only time I got to push the car. Turbo lag was noticeable however. My major complaint though was the shifting, which seemed very sluggish. Definitely a pause in power delivery on all up-shifts. To have a true dual clutch on a sports sedan, I think that's one of the main things that will make the m5 shine and is the main reason I picked it over the e63. Soon...

I've driven it a few times with the Performance Package.

The turbo lag was not that noticeable and the tranny was solid, yes its not a DCT but downshifts were dam quick and Sport+ mode was lighting fast.

Also I did love the exhaust tune very similar to my c63!!

Overall if the styling appealed to me i would be driving it now.

where was this information given out by BMW NA about the 09/1 release date. Can someone post the link ? Right now I feel like BMWNA is way too greedy to have these orders fuilfilled and lock the customers before they went to other competitors.

What a greedy act by BMWNA...shame BMW shame. I hope someone from BMWNA is reading these posts.....

I, myself, have also been wanting to see where BMW of NA officially quoted that date as a lot of people refer too. Google searches yield a release date of late summer.
