Gents,

To keep a long story short I got my M5 today at 4:30pm delivered to my door in style...thats how you should get one of these. It was originally slated for 19th May but if you read one of my old threads the sales person screwed up my order. I was told to expect it in April 2006 but I was not having it. Behind the scenes I've been working with the London dealer to ensure they
did what they had to do to get me my M5 before August.....so here it is.

Question for current drivers...how do you select one of the programs in "D" or "S" mode ?. The amount of looks this car attracts !!!!! - so much power. I must have been driving around in "S" mode around town for at least an hour before I remembered that there is a "POWER" button which gives me the 507BHP so I was driving around in 400BHP mode and didn't realise it. The power delivery is awesome.

I brought a X5 a couple of weeks ago - really enjoying it but the M5 is another story all together. Here's some pictures for you.

Press the rocker switch directly behind the gearstick. Press the left side for slower shifting and the right side for faster shifting. You'll see which program you are in via a display just about the gear indicator on the dashboard.

The more I see this thing in black the more I am tempted to go in that direction. It is a great color for this car (as long as it stays clean). I doubt it is carbon black since that would be an Individual color for this car (right?), and I don't detect any blue in it.

It is Sapphire Black. My original spec had Carbon Black but I changed my mind and its paid dividends - I like this colour.

Two things remaining for Monday

1) My head rests TV's
2) Front passenger/driver window tints.

Dealer said he'll do them but it would be Wednesday for someone to install and then deliver to me. Coulden't wait.

All in all I think my invoice was for £71,300 bucks.

Option List

354 Graduated Tint Windscreen
601 T.V Function
678 Rear Headphone System
677 Logic 7 Professional Hi-Fi
761 Sun Protect Glass
644 Bluetooth
416 Sunblinds for side and rear
620 Extended Voice Control
Z5C BMW Online Internet Portal
465 Thru Load System inc Ski Bag
496 Heated Rear Seats
4MA M Multi-Function Sport Seats

I'm in the office today so I can't enjoy the beast till later this evening. :mad:
