Hi - I brought a F10 M5 a 63 Plate LCI about 3 weeks ago, I am based in the South and the car come form Glasgow, the options were all ticked. Make sure you get one well specced as their are numerous options on this car. Its a awesome car although the DCT box has its quirks at times or its just a matter of me getting used to it still as I have always had conventional autos. The first thing I did was put a BMW comprehensive warranty for the year with a 100 excess that set me back 995 for the year, I wanted to enjoy the car and not to worry about the stuff you have been thinking about. Its a good car and the power is immense but it does struggle to put it all down without the traction light going on etc..

You need Pilot Sport 4s

295 are standard but 305s also fit although the insurance company may need to be informed as it's technically not standard

is that the highest level of cover you can get with the warranty? how did you get it so cheap?

Same with me, I was quoted nearly 2k per year. I would pay 1k all day long for a fully comprehensive BMW warranty.

When I spoke with my insurance company about the 305's and they said it made no difference in this case.
They are more concerned with people fitting standard tyres on overwide wheels saving money on wider tyres.

Worth checking though given how tricky they can be
