options 09 vr. 10

What are the changes from the 09 and 10's.

My wife told me my nieces had got an 10 M5. I had a 06 M5. She said that she didn't like the interior of the 10 compared to the 06. She also said that there was no paddle shift . Is this possible?

The only difference between 09 and 10 models is 10 models have the hard drive based navigation system whereas previous models have the DVD based one.

If you search on differences between model years, you'll find plenty of threads on the subject.

If it's not a stick, and doesn't have paddle's, there's no way it's an M5. Maybe it's a 550i M-Sport and they are simply mistaking them. To the average eye, they look very very similar.

If I'm not mistaken, the 09 and 10 M5's are identical in appearance (the HD based navigation doesn't change any appearances on the interior - it's all internal stuff).

The 550i M sport has an option of paddle shifters which makes it an automatic. I believe you can also get it in a manual transmission.

Just ask your nieces to pop open the hood and see if the plenum covers says ///M V10. Or look for 200 mph on the speedometer

Thanks for taking time to respond guy's. She had brought it over on Thanksgiving and I looked at it out the window. It had chrome M5 wheels on it, but I was pretty sure it wasn't an M5, but it's never a good idea to call the wife a liar. I've been on the fence as to buy another M5 and I think she is trying to talk me out of it. The post on the 2nd worst reliable car didn't help a whole lot.

Totally cliche but you only live once!

I believe it helps if you know how to do much of the maintenance yourself; It saves you a ton of money. You also get a better understanding and appreciation for your car. It is funny how even the simplest of things, the dealer will clean your bank account. I thank the ///M5Board for the knowledge I have gained.

I have been working on all my cars since I was 16 and poor. My garage has a lift, air tools, torches, welders, port-a-power and at least 2 of every tool ever made. Trouble is I'm 63 with a bad back and pinched nerves. Like REVO my boy loved the beast and when he was around it was basically his. Right now I'm fine, but afraid I won't realize that the car has exceded my capabilities. My wife was the one that told me to go buy the first beast if I wanted it. I think the thing that changed her mind was the gas bills she got every month. The way I drove it, most of the time my MPG was never higher than 9.5. Oh well. Thanks.

i had a 06 and 08 and am still driving the 10

not much difference at all between them interior wise

the main things

hd based nav system (as noted before)
door side arm rests sloped slightly different, with the switches moved a bit
mileage rate less on the 10.
fuel requirement rated different on the 08/10 (06 said 93 octane, later two were 91)
horsepower lowered (06 with higher octane was 508, the 08/10 were 500)
the 10 had soft close doors as an option

thats all i can remember, nothing much. the nav system is a LOT better though in the 10.
