Does that mean that it'll also be available with a conventional manual gearbox?

I think not. That only reflects the different driving programs of the SMG III gearbox.

I think however letting Getrag add a manual gearbox until the "real launch" would not be a problem. Maybe they just are tsting the waters for potential customers here.

They have generally been understated.

The E39 M5 did not disapoint and neither will the E60 M5. BMW has just raised the bar.

Hmmm. Need some time to digest that. The beak is the best part; the butt is a touch butt-ugly. Not sure about the arc to the beltline either. Reminds me of a rugby ball for some reason.

The W211 0-200 kmh figures I have are 16.1sec. These are a little old, so maybe someone has done better.
Looks like, once again, BMW has harnessed the power of a Saturn V rocket. Each generation just gets a bigger percentage of the Satrun V's power. Maybe in 2030 we will see 100%
