I know its only got 518 horsepower, but power isn't everything, it will still get from 0 to 60 in 4 - 4.1 seconds, could be the same as the new M5.

I would love the M5 to start at the same $95K becuase that means I could hopefully get a used one for $70K in a few years. if its pushing $120K loaded it will be out of my used bracket.
You make a good point but you forget that $120K is Alpina B7 territory and I would much rather have the Alpina than the M5, and in that price range you get a lot more exclusivity than the M5

Remember, this is a pre-production tester still.

I recommend reading the article in Evo. And I don't mean the teaser linked in the article, I don't think the full article is online yet. It usually lags the print issue by a bit. Chris really likes the car, and has some interesting things to say about it.

Without a doubt they are.

Do not take away too much from the "details". Seats, dash, trim, etc. all not production spec.
