So, I haave driver over 300 km today with the new BMW M5 and just say either the surface here is extremely slippery or the M5 has alot of power over 560 HP or something in between this. The car feels very very fast even at 30 degress Celsius which it was here today. No temperature issues at all.
Yes, it is heavier than the M3 of course at slow corners but let's say it has been a very fun day and tommorrow it is Ascari 5 km long course. The fun havent even started!

We had a pause here:
Monte Carlo blue is much darker out in reallife than on autosalons. I like the colour alot. Sporty! Much lighter than LeMans Blue but much darker than Estoril Blue.
1) Can the active sound be turned off?
2) Are blue calipers standard and can the car be ordered with black calipers?
3) Why are all the test vehicles we are seeing with the 18s v 19s wheels?
Good questions. As regards (3), the wheels size they are using are 19", they are not using the optional 20s almost certainly because they negatively impact the dynamics of the vehicle. I will be ordering mine with 19s.
Gustav, thanks for this. Looking forward to more pictures and information.
This is awesome Gustav. Keep it coming. I think that is a burning question on everybody's mind, is whether or not the Active Sound feature can be turned off or disabled or has it's own volume setting. I would hope that the put some sort of control of it through the iDrive.
Also can you let us know your thoughts if the car exhibits any kind of turbo lag. The description I've heard so far is that in the lower gears (1 & 2) there is virtually no turbo lag, but there is a slightly noticable turbo lag in the higher gears.
Any also how heavy the car feels to drive around compared to the E60. Thanks!
Hello Gustav, anxious to hear what you think about it! I would like to know what the range of car dynamics settings feels like compared to the E60, in if it is a milder, softer car in its comfort settings and as aggressive car in its sportiest settings.
