Post Estimated time of ownership?

I was wondering what the plans of current E60 M5 owners are when the new M5 arrives..

Obviously, all depends on what the F10 is like, but that goes without saying. Just imagine you'll like it as much as the E60 when you bought that.

Also, the arrival of some other interesting cars may lure some owners out of M5 ownership. The new M3 for instance might get a lot of E60 M5 trade-ins

Hard to say without knowing what the F10 will look like and drive like. Based on experiences with the E60, I would probably wait until the second full production year.

I don't know what's next, but I'll probably keep my car until the end of 2011.

I'll probably update my E60 M5 with another at least once before the F10 is available. I will also get several other cars in the meantime.

The alledged successor to the E60..They have ran out of E-designations, and the F comes next.

Personally, I hope they name it F14 and offer it in primer grey aswell
