Yeah saw it aswell I was there on Wednesday. I'm going again this weekend, will take my cheap HP camera with :7:

It does look awesome in the metal. There is a 530d behind it, and you can clearly see how much better the ///M5 looks than a normal E60 :1:

There are alot of other cool cars aswell, I liked the SL 65 AMG and the McClaren SLR :cool2:

I have to agree, I also saw the car and it is just sooo awesome. The BMW rep also confirmed that there won't be a manual:sad1: He told me that 95% of all 5 series sold in SA are SMG :confused2 so it doesn't make sense to bring out manual.

He also told me that there is an M5 at a tuning company in Germany that has been supercharged and is pushing out 540kw, he wasn't sure which company it was but was sure it wasn't Schnitzer.

Well done to BMW for creating such an awesome carkinggf
