Thank you all for the love, much appreciated!!!

Also forgot to mention that I have the HUD display. Its amazing and extremely clear especially in bright daylight, its perfect. Also, it does a very good job by displaying the speed limit of the different street in the HUD.

They do, must be the sunlight, but ill take another look. Take a look at one of the photos on the bottom that just had the reflector, looks pretty close.

Quick question - does the new Navigation Pro have the touch surface controller as well, or is the the same controller as the 2012 5 series iDrive?
Thank you and unfortunately BMW has not released the touch surface controller on these builds. Would of been nice to have that feature but will not miss it.

One thing I forgot to mention - I am not sure how to keep it low in the 1200 service period, you cant go slow in this car, pretty much impossible

I hope all of you get yours as soon as possible so we can have this out throughout the US, since Europe and Canada got to enjoy it way before all of us here :/

Congrats, BEAUTIFUL combo. The grill and gills look superb in black.

Did they say anything about the 17+ miles on the car when you got it?

Awesome machine..
MPG should have been a little higher.

Fuel Economy & Greenhouse gas rating - 3 out of 10
Smog Rating(tailpipe only) 5 out of 10

WOW.
Thanks for the B&O pics, I think it adds a lot to the cars richness.

Nice! I really like how the new M5 looks, probably my favorite thus far.

To me it looks very similar to the E92 M3 styling...which is my favorite M3 so far, so i guess that makes sense :P

18 miles is probably just right - keep in mind - driven away from factory into a lot - picked up and put on carrier - taken to port, driven into ship. Driven out of ship into lot. Put on a second carrier from lot to dealer then dealer moves it around.. so acceptable in my eyes.

Congrats on a great color selection. The 1200 mile break-in was tough on me too but I was able to get 1200 miles on the M6 in about 3 weeks.

Just wait till you can throw the hammer down. It's a pure adrenaline rush.
