560BHP you say?

Recommended Posts

Pulled the trigger once I got the all clear from she who must be obeyed 😂

Traded my 535i M-Sport Touring for an M5. 

Beautiful day to put some rubber down too. 😎

I imagine those roads out the back of Whangarei are ideal for seeing what it can do!

Absolutely. I have to say that the active steering in the 535i definitely helped the car feel smaller when parking. Certainly the suspension feels more tied down and is not as plush as the 535i. Not harsh. Just not as plush. 

As for steering. The M5 still has a hydraulic rack and is noticeably better in feedback. But I think the best feature is the HUD. And the instant rush. Will need 2 rear 20” tires soon at the rate this carries on. 😂

It’s a standout - I saw the wheels and the R32 badging. Wondered if someone was taking the piss. Then clicked about reading about someone building something like that somewhere! 😂

I’ve figured it out. MFM means MotherF******Monster. 😂

16.2L/100kms on a drive to Oakura Bay via Old Russell Road. Superb road. No such thing as a straight. No traffic at all which was a bonus. Get to drive past the Russian’s place at Helena Bay.

Good car to get :)

Prices coming down all the time so negotiate hard.

Oh.. get a touring :D

 

9 years ago in July you commented on my first introduction thread... now we've both bought F10 M5s within a week of each other 😆 so coincidental

What a car to get!
