Our BMW M Festival Coverage Begins! - F10 M5 Seen on Roads For 1st Time

Hey Guys,

Well... here is a little preview of what they will show at tonight's M Night....

Follow Bimmerpost's Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/bimmerpost) for live updates from the M Festival.


The M5 test car and me "raced" all the way from Aschaffenburg until Limburg on the A3 autobahn. I am sure I will see him later tonight! I think he was running low on fuel. I was really expecting him to blow me out of the water... but it turned out to be a VERY close race.

What makes you think he was even half trying. I'm sure he could have made you a speck in his mirror if he wanted to.

Dude, you don't know what he has under that N54 to keep up with that M5. You have modded 335s smoking M cars left and right. One should never assume!

Really Really

Hey, not assuming. My 335 has Dinan stage 2 so I know what it's like.
BUT, the new M5 is in a whole different league!

Nice shots. I do wish I was there this weekend. Well, in honor of the Debut of the 2012 M5, I will drive my X6 M like a mad man on all highways!

WATCH OUT!!

Dinan Stage 2 is not exactly tapping into the potential of the N54. Try an FBO (including meth) N54. Completely different animal and in a 135 could keep up with a 560 HP (much heavier) car.

Regardless, awesome car. Thanks for the pics.
