If this turns out to be true, I will:

(1) gladly give up my three-year-old 1st spot in line to await the row-your-own option

(2) take back every nasty thing I've ever written about user BMW NA and his/her lack of usefulness to this community

I'm not getting my hopes up just as yet, but if this does prove true, it will restore a good bit of the goodwill erased by recent design decisions and the subsequent justifications to this (and other) loyal base of customers.

Okay, so I AM getting my hopes up. Here's a little Woo-hoo! for BMWUSA!

That sounds like three transmission choices. "...a rapid manual gearshift..." Could this mean DSG?

Agreed. I could grow accustomed to the styling, but the MT option is mandatory. :noSMG:

the BMW representative in Canadian International Auto Show (Toronto) also agreed there will be 6-speed manual transmission available about one year after the introduction of M5.

so it's a fact now.

conventional 6-speed manual transmission will be available on M5 for both the US and Canada.

Tifosi,

I won't get to the show until next week. Is the M5 there?

If yes - Info? Pictures? Impressions? Crowd Reaction?

Don't hold out on us!

Cheers,

yes, the M5 was indeed in the show. more specifically, the Interlago Blue M5 from Detroit auto show. and i guess the crowd in Detroit didn't treat the M5 with too much care (i know i didn't :haha: ) so the leather of the car was in very poor condition.

unfortunetly though, all the M cars are locked in the show. although i was lucky enough to have chance to play with the car during the press days.

Lovely pics, I think that blue is awesome!
Gustav, you would get arrested if you drove that blue. You need something a little less bold given your driving style.

Like red ;) News: I will probably get my hands on an E60 M5 this April. My plan is to go to Koenigsegg.com airfield and do a little video :1:We'll see!

Great shots Tifosi!

I hadn't viewed this thread for a while and just saw them. It must have been great having the whole floor to yourself! .... except of course for that little hotty on the front hood in one of your pics...mmmmmm Someone you know?

I had to fight the masses:(

Cheers!
