Just thought I Post a hello thread.....

I got my F10 M5 Silverstone in December, its my 5th M car and my third M5. I had both the E39 & E60 M5 which were delivered at time of their launch, but I waited for the F10 as I was enjoying my Maserati GT S, so didn't take delivery of a launch car.

As a daily drive, IMHO its the best M5 yet, I know both the E39 & E60 have their fans, but as an all round package the F10 takes some beating.....

Here's some pictures, currently mine has no mod's, I usually like to enjoy my cars a bit then start with the changes, helps stop getting board too quick!
Also put a couple of my old ones....

Welcome aboard. Agree with your impressions. Still have a special e39 but f10 takes the cake.

Nice! Another f10 m5'er that came from a maserati gts! This car will smack that gts in every direction....

Congrats on the upgrade, I know you probably feel the same way I do

Cheers brother

The only area the Maserati wins is the noise it makes out of the box, the F10 does not come anywhere close, the Maserati also attracted a lot more attention..

I would summarise it as the Maserati is 'all show & no go' and the M5 is 'all go & no show'

Put an Eisenmann Race on that baby and you'll never complain about the noise again

The Maserati is such a beautiful car...and such an utter disappointment to drive.

I simply couldn't have summarized it better myself

Every single thing you said is true. I had a black convertible with red leather, piano black trim and black birdcage wheels with red calipers, I will post a pic when I get to a computer

The sound was the best, very Ferrari like, loads and loads of attention with the top down

Congrats! Count me in as another E60 owner who feels that besides the scream of the S85 at high RPMs the F10 is hands-down a better car.

Love the SSII. Great choice.

Here was my GTS... hated it.. loved the looks i got but this car is totally inferior to the F10 M5... that and it had those silly bunny-ear paddle shifters, 6MT for me all th way in the M5... this GTS made me realize I simply cannot drive an automatic, trip tronic, paddle shift nonsense of a car...

Congrats. Love your color choice. The blue of the E39 and the black of the e60 were the perfect colors for their respective models.

Lovely looking car

My GT S had a single clutch sequential gearbox and was similar to the E60 M5 SMG in terms of quality of gear change, a bit dated compared to modern DCT boxes.....

Don't let that tranny spoil your entire perception of flappy paddle gear boxes. The crap transmission was the first thing I noticed when I drove the Maserati. BMW's DCT is light years ahead of that.
