I'm sure your road test will be really comprehensive but I don't care as I've got one of my own arriving in around 10 days :)

You have to post your roadtest before for inspiration.
I'll do my best Gustav, but I'm no journalist. I'll have to plan some trips with friends during the first couple of weeks. The hand controls are being fitted on the 10th/11th October (plus a radar detector behind the front bumper, an LRC-100 (the UK version of the Lidatek), and a GPS speed camera locator), I'll take delivery on the 12th or 13th.

Gustav, please cover the handling characteristics as it compares to the M5 (i.e. more sporting? etc.). Thank you.
