I'm certainly biased but I love the blue brakes, and they worked pretty well with AW too. As BMW indicated to us, general feedback regarding the blue brakes is pretty good so far. Better get used to this as a new M trademark feature going forward.

We're not a minority, we're a small group with taste.

The red interior is a bit over the top, for me. As for NA V-10 vs twin turbo V-8, I actually prefer the latter. I really get a charge out of the way my N55 sounds when I goose it. It is more of a growl rather than a staccato exhaust note.

the red/orange interior is an absolute disaster.

Think I agree with you, but still didn't stop me ordering the M5!! I know tests haven't been carried out yet, but I would be surprised if the M5 isn't easily the best overall car in the class.

I absolutely love the Alpine White with the red interior. Ridiculous!

That car screams power.

Get the f*ck out of here, the M5 just leapt back onto my list of next possible cars with a vengeance. The white with extended red interior, wow. Just wow.

Are the 19 or 20 wheels nicer? I simply can't decide.

Let me put it that way, the 20" wheels are way more shiny, regardless of whether you like that or not. I personally prefer the darker 19" wheels because they remind me of the lovely 18" wheels for the E9x M3. Also, if you'll be using the 5-spoke winter wheels BMW offers you might want a different design for the summer wheels. Just my 2 cents, after all you can't go wrong either way and I'd assume that the 20" will be more popular at large.


Best regards,
south

WANT. Space Gray on Sakhir Orange extended with 19s. And Why was there confusion about the steering being hydraulic? The M5 brochure already addressed that several months back on a downloadable PDF.

For me, it looks like 20's in the warm months and 19's with the winter tires. Both look great IMO.

The blue brake calipers are definitely darker than what they were showing previously. This color would have been a disaster!!
