hamann grills, skirts front, back, and roof spoiler. E-race exhaust, eibach springs, LM-R 19s..........almost perfect.

Since u all know how good it is, so first :
complaints include the too low ride height, lower than a f430 with the hamann lip, constantly driving like a crab going sideways.
fear of stopping from short bursts in city traffic. may need 6-8pot brembos if i have money seeping out of the wallet.
The wipers speed is very stupid, i cant find a variable speed i like, its too fast as is.
torque in low speeds could be better.
auto d-drive is really stupid, never used it, SMG mode not as fast as i like it to be, namely look at f430. the too manual like rocking is a minus too.
gas mileage or the tank size is beyond laughable, 105 miles per tank then light comes on. my other 500hp cars get much better mileage than that!

but have to be my safest, fastest 4door, loudest car ever! NICE! :)

Looks GREAT....and a good thing you stayed with the 19's, 20 or 21's would never last on those streets. Nice shots

Not to my personal taste, esp. the reflective tint but I'm sure many disagree and if you love it then that's all that matters.cherrsagai

I didn't quite understand all of your complaints, but the photos look great. I like your mods.

Welcome!

A BMW M5 in Chine must be very rare!

Did you see my report in a Chinese magazine?
Full report here in English:

That's pretty cool, Gustav. Just curious, but did you sell them that or give them permission to use it or did they just print it without your consent?

Where do you drive in Taipei? It is so congested over there. My Granparents live in Taiwan, but I have not been back there in 2 years. Nice ride!

thanks all for the response, let me clarify something, im from taiwan not china, these 2 are apple and oranges, and lets leave it at that.
i live in the states for 20 years and i can tell u that u can use the 500 horses more often and with more peace of mind in taiwan. My license was suspended 3 times in the states, i dont have that problem called the po-po in taiwan, i just pay the pink slips. Fastest i gone in taiwan is 190mph, 165 in the states. Roads do suck in taiwan but no more so than in detroit or L.A. Actually its better than the salt beaten mid-west roads.
i love and enjoy driving in taiwan much more than say in L.A.
An M5 cost twice as much in taiwan but after u factor in all the lawyer, insurance, bail and maybe out of court man slaughter settlement charges, then the almost $200k admission price is actually cheaper in taiwan. :biggrinbounce:
