saabkyle04 takes a look at a Space Grey 2013 M5

hey,

saabkyle04, a rather known car enthusiast, takes a closer look at a Space Grey F10 M5. It is more like a tour through the car and its features than a real review. Anyway, it is worth watching - at least for me

Sorry for not embesding, but it is not possible from the iPhone

Merry Christmas to all of you

It was a good review if not a little bit long for those of us who have heard of the car before. I do cringe every time I hear someone rev the engine after start up. Is it just me or is that still a bad thing?

I love the sound of the car...Unfortunately I do not own one but I have heard it in person and in my opinion it sounds powerful...

there are only two things that would be disturbing to me - no auto hold function and active noise control. or at least the function to deactivate it...but I admit I haven't heard it yet...

I like his reviews. Not the most exciting test-drive kind of reviews, but get people to know enough about a particular car. I'd rather watch his clips than listening to what my salesman/woman's delivery presentation. Thank you for sharing.

one side note, maybe it's because I am getting old, although the stock M5 doesn't sound as aggressive as the E60 M5 w/ V10, I like the sound pretty much myself.

I appreciate the fact that this and other reviewers take time to cover a particular model car but I can't help cringing when I hear a reviewer (and I've heard several) make mistakes or important omissions in their reviews.

In this example he mentions the available "adaptive cruise control" and even explains its function. I don't believe it is an option on the 2013 M5 because I couldn't get it when I ordered mine ( please correct me if I'm wrong). Also he mentions the US cars are limited to 155 while Euro spec'd cars can reach "upwards of 190mph". Again, this is not entirely correct. As I understand it, all M5s are set to the same limit however for Europe there is an M training class that once completed will allow you to have your limiter reset to 195. As for omission examples, he covered the in-dash CD player but doesn't show the glove box mounted DVD changer even though he opens and covers the glove box. He also doesn't mention the night vision option.

Again, I'm happy there are reviewers out there and when I was doing my research I watched every one of them. However, IMHO, while this reviewer does cover the basics, the review itself is lackluster, lethargic and worst of all inaccurate. That said, I couldn't do a better job myself.

I usually like SaabKyle's reviews. Too bad he didn't stirrup the forum with the mention of adjustable side bolsters "just like the M6." :-)

LOL@20:41 6.1 MPG fuel consumption.
The un-initiated will be freaked out by that figure.

Happily, my M5 got 23 MPG on my way from AL to SC this past weekend.

All good the car will not rev until its warm so no issues there, but I can't exceed 5k RPM until 1200 miles.
