Hi All,
I just purchased my first E60 M5 today: Indianapolis Red, Silverstone with the blonde wood. Traded in my 08 z06 as it was finally time to get a sedan. Was a tough chose between an AMG CLS and the M5. Outside of an E39 528, this is actually the first 4 door I've owned in my adult life and used as my personal car. Not counting of course, my wife's sedan.

This is one of only a few posts on the M5 Board, but I've been a memeber since 06 when I had my E46 M3 vert.

I've posted a few pics on Picasa, as well as some photos of previous rides.

Beautiful. Good decision over the AMG. Coming from a z06 the CLS handling might have been too tame. I love the looks of the CLS tho.

Thanks guys! Next step is hardwiring the V1, then iPod. Don't know if I'll do any performance mods at this point. We'll see.

Congratulations on the new ride! How are you liking the white interior so far? Any issues with keeping it clean?

Thanks guys. The interior is actually a light grey, but does look white in the pictures. I've been pounding on it. Surprisingly though, the only difference in P500 sport/P500 vs. 400 is 9.3 vs. 9.8 MPG.

Congrats and welcome! It looks like you are driving your car properly to achieve that mileage! I'm stuck at 10.1 mpg in P500 Sport. I think it is due to my new spark plugs making me a bit more efficient. Enjoy!
