I love the torque, the V10 lacked torque and needed its neck wrung to get the performance but the F10 has such a massive spread of power. It is crazy how a 4 door saloon does what it does.

Having had many five series I am used to the size but I love how it shrinks around you and the chassis and brakes are superb compared to the E60.

I do think it will be a classic, sure it was knocked because of no V10 and turbos but this was the only viable option BMW could take. That V10 though characterful was so damn fragile and the fuel consumption and range was woeful. I was constantly in fear of the next breakage lol.

In short I love this car, it looks special and it feels special. Have no regrets
Thanks mate, really excited, will let you know when I have driven it
