The M5 DCT has pretty much the same mpg as the CTS-V manual. Pretty surprising considering the lower displacement and more elaborate technology of the M5.

With this mpg, somewhat frequent gas station visits will be needed with the M5 even with its relatively large gas tank. Probably every 260 miles or so...

Very nice M5!! I wish I could afford one!


The mpg should get better once the car gets broken in.

Which has better sound? B&O or Logic7?

It was my understanding that the July + production on the M5 & M6 had the new nav system with the 200 G hard drive and the 3D maps as posted elsewhere. Also I noticed the $1,300 gas guzzler tax. I am doing the ED on the 2013 M6 vert in September. The gas guzzler tax was $1,000. Not a big deal but was wondering if the gas guzzler tax changed. I am also hoping that our car will have the updated nav. Will post pictures in September. M6 Sakhir orange convertible with Silverstone leather. Very similar equipped as yours. Great looking car. Enjoy!!!!

Yes, I stopped by there on the way home. The blue one was not there but the black one was in the shop. Then there's an new M6 white on black, and lime green and fire orange M3s on the floor!

No worries, i am glad to share the forum, i just dont share the keys thou .

As for the reflectors, no i purchased them from IND before the car got there and just gave them to the dealer to install with the center and side grills.

Sums it up for me! When and if I get there I will take the same combo. Great taste and awesome you have ordered reflectors and such before the actual car came, makes it so much better for you. I love this forum, people congratulating you and they mean it! Enjoy!!!

congrats - looks awesome! I like that center channel on the B&O system. Amazing that the m5 comes with so much std. equipment, yet one can still plunk 20K of options on it...
