Sounds good, I will keep an eye out for some track days. Once the cars come in, maybe we can get together at Santana Row

Thanks much for the invite Barry. I'm off to a wedding but more importantly, I haven't received my M5 yet! It is still waiting to be shipped from Port Hueneme.......

hsiaochinsan: I am 9/3 @ 9:00am. Stop saying "early November"---- late Oct is technically possible (although improbable). Be more positive!

Silicon Valley M5 Picked Up!!

I just picked up my Singapore Gray / Black full leather from BMW of Monterey! The car is stunning and the pics really don't do the color any justice! It is the most beautiful gun metal gray/blue that I have seen. Very distinctive M color and very cool with the blue calipers.

I put around 100 miles on the car - but I can say that the car is stunning. In the comfort, efficient mode - it feels like Sport Mode in the Panamera 4S. Seriously. I was driving 80-90 mph without any effort on the car. This is the most dynamic, sporty, stealth car I have owned. Although I still love my E60 M5, this F10 version makes the previous M5 feel unrefined.

The guys from BMW of Monterey are FANTASTIC! I highly recommend them for their professionalism, service and product knowledge. Ask for Paul G or Paul D - great guys! PS - they have an unallocated black M5 coming in soon...

LOL. I plan for the worst. My checking time is 9:10AM and actual delivery time is 10:40AM. I will see you there. If you see a 6"2' Chinese guy by himself, it will be me.

Congrats man! Singapore Gray is my 2nd choice of color. Wife likes the AW better. Love your color combo.

Got my car on Tuesday, snuck into an event at Laguna on Wednesday. Car felt great. I did a 1:47 best, but did not feel like I had my line "dialed in" at all and MDM seemed pretty intrusive at times (especially WOT up hills).

How many miles on your car?
1:47 is impressive :-)
Awesome pic. I pick up mine with same color combo tomorrow.
