Hello my friend! Don't be overwhelmed. It is really not as complicated as it may seem. Set your M-Drive settings. Set your EQ for your listening enjoyment. Start up your car. Push the M button on steering wheel. Insert your favorite CD or select your favorite iPod Song. Turn up the volume quite loud although not quite loud enough to bury the exhaust note completely. Drive away! As simple as that. All the rest is just the RTFM stuff. Enjoy your new beast!

It definitely pays to read the manual for this car cover to cover. you will find a lot of neat little features and get much more enjoyment out of the car.

ant something complicated? I was in for service yesterday and got a 750Li as a loaner... I was still sitting there ten minutes later trying to get the radio to change from SAT to FM via iDrive... You've really got to read the manual these days....

I have found that precisely the same things that seemed overwhelming at first help keep this car interesting in the long run. There is-and never will be-a dull moment with the E60 M5. lovelove

I remember reading the (European) manual that I downloaded a few months before I got the car. Helped tremendously, along with all the knowledge spewed forth on this board.
