New Beast has landed - Sepang Bronze/Sepang/Olive Ash

Let me start by saying wow is this site addictive or what! Wasn't sure I was going to buy the car, but really wanted to share in the same experiences and fun everyone else on this forum seems to be having.
Finally took the plunge and took delivery of my car this evening. I fell in love with this color combo after seeing pics of the 2004 Paris auto show when the e60 M5 was released to the public. Car is Sepang Bronze with Sepang leather and Olive ash wood. I am not sure about this color of wood in other paint schemes, however it blends perfectly with the lighter and darker brown tones in the paint and leather.
Finally after my sales rep went over the car with me for about 2 hours, I was able to strap myself in and get behind the wheel.
WOW...Holy "S"!!! I know it's a bit cliche but, this
thing is better than you know what!!! (and yes I'm
doing it right)
Oh Sweet mother of all creatures big and small, I'm
driving this car in granny mode (400HP) trying to treat'er right, and she still runs like a bat out'a hell. Only
1000 more miles and I can drop her into "S6" hit the M
button and 500+ ponies will be runnin wild!
P.S. SMG...I am in love with driving all over again

Congrats Joe, you look very excited! It's a beautiful ride, and although the break-in will be painful, the excitement of knowing it's in your garage will always override.

Congratulations - I like the colour combination! Watch out for that shifty looking guy in the orange shirt, I think he wants to steal your car

Yeah... Don't keep it in P400... Let it loose as much as you possibly can without violating the break-in structions.

Lovely colour isn't it?

I've still yet to see a sepang bronze car in the "flesh". Your combo looks great.

Enjoy.
