Picked up my M5 at the Welt today

Took delivery of my F10 M5 this morning. It is definitely a much better car than my E60 M5 and better sprung than my 550i M Sport. The engine is very responsive and smooth. If McLaren made a 4 door MP4-12C, this would be it. We did a quick drive over to the Dolomites and thoroughly enjoyed the twisties to the top. The Alpina Dolomites resort is amazing. More pics to come shortly. Excuse the iphone 5 pics.

You poor man. Redelivery to east coast is taking 2.5 months these days.

Nice photos you took in the Dolomites. Beautiful setting.

I also had a 550i previously and agree on your comments entirely. The M5 is a magnificent machine, and it has a bit of that McLaren Wow.

it also is surprisingly getting better gas mileage than the 550i. The larger fuel tank is really nice!

That surprises me. I got better mileage in the 550i. The missing 8th gear really hurts highway fuel efficiency.

visit to the M Studio In Garching. Saw both the new M3 and M4 zooming around. I am liking the look of both. The stance are very wide and they both sound really good!




the best parking in Italy! The Alpina Dolomites resort is spectacular. The road up to it is incredible too and puts the M5 to the test.

Loved the Dolomiti! Stayed at the Rosa Alpina, excellent service and food. Driving the mountain roads there was outrageous. Glad you are enjoying your Euro experience. Best to ya.

isn't it only worse if you have the fuel pump issue? PM me. I have the contacts at the VPC from when those idiots crashed my Z4 35is.
