I really don't understand your question (english isn't my mother tongue).
Do you mean luxury edition of the M5: Full leather, Alcantara, Comfort Seats vs Sports seats, al trim etc.
I think that the M5 (any) is a luxury car that beats most sports cars.

yeah thats what i meant ,

some have wood trim and plush seats, and then some have the Alu type trim and the Sport seats.

also some have different steering wheels and so on.

I'm sure with a quick search you can come up with pictures of the complete leather interior vs. sport / standard interior.

I prefer the complete leather interior where everything is either wood, leather, or Alcantara.

It really comes down to what you want. The non-complete leather interior looks sportier with the Aluminum trim and two-tone seats. However when I bought I figured if I was going to spend all this money it should have dead cow on everything I could touch. Plus, I really like the look of the complete leather caramel interior.

maybe its just the pre 01 dash layout i dont like ... u know the one with the tape!!!!

All have hidden tape deck, but pre '01 had a 4x3 screen; newer have 16x9. The 4x3 lux interior had the fake wood around the 4x3 cover; the 16x9 does not, it is simply black.

There was a recent thread showing the different interiors, do a search, I am sure you can find it from the last few days.

oh allright , i thought they flipped down.

how about another head unit upfront?
'01+ head unit opens and exposes the hidden tape deck; 4x3 was out in the open.

You can replace the head unit, but there is a fair amount involved. All the 'guts" are in the trunk/boot, the "head unit" is simply the screen for display.

Do a search, there have been some "head unit" upgrades and I believe some guys have kept the DSP.

Also check out board sponsor BSW for stereo upgrades and info.

The sport interior reminded me a lot of the standard 5 series interior where the luxury / full leather interior was just that.
