I like all those cars but prefer BMW and the m5.

get it checked by bmw
most probably they will change your solenoids
very common on early production m5 f10's
nothing to worry about
but it will start coming more and more often

Here's some more pics of my ugly e63 SAMG .

Agree with you guys that the nav screen should be bigger and that it should have other features that the M5 has but I'm still happy with it for now . Break in period almost over , will post pics against my friends zcp m5 soon.

Regards

I do not mean to be disrespectful but the car may have amazing performance numbers, but it is ugly inside and out.
Everyone has different options it's all good

I don't agree. The exterior of the E63 is what it is but the interior of the E63 is very nice. It swings to elegance rather than pure sport and 'ugly' is exactly what it is not. Brushed aluminum, carbon fibre, leather, it's all good.

I have issues with the COMMAND system but the interior is otherwise a very nice place to be and the seats are excellent. I'm betting you've never been in one.

I want Mercs and Audi to always almost as good or even sometimes a slightly better than BMW... it keeps up the competition. I agree that the Merc interior features and components are very nice and high quality.. the design look and and layout are questionable. The Merc and Audi power plants of recent and certainly formidable and BMW better not lose a step!
