Re: OFFICIAL M5 concept screens!!! OMFG!!!!

For me this is personal !!! My brother who has an E55 is so going down
after dragging him with TCM *where the car is now at TC's place being
modded !!!* I cant wait to get my hands on a new M5. On the other hand
I do prefer the looks of the 6 series and will wait it out hoping it will
have that little edge against the M5 0-200 in under 13 !!! Goodbye
anything that isn't a supercar that costs twice the amount !!! Thank you
BMW, now give me a 7 Speed manual !!!!!

Wow, 13 seconds to 200km/h is mighty quick! That's Gallardo territory!

Hmm.. 7 speed, nice!

The overall design looks good, but it probably looks different in real life, hopefully even better

Re: OFFICIAL M5 concept screens!!! OMFG!!!!

Apparantly it was a mistake that they leaked out in the first place

http://motoring.iafrica.com/newsbriefs/306266.htm

"The photos leaked onto the internet were apparently compliments of a department within the company, and according to ‘Auto Express’, was made known by a BMW spokesperson. Either way, someone is in a hell of a lot of trouble but he or she has certainly put smiles on our faces!"

Boy those Press site pictures are really popular...the BMW Press site is really slow today! I'll have to try and get them later!

Meanwhile, I'm on the phone right now to confirm my place on the waiting list!
