OMG,...O..M..God this car is sensational!!!
Excellent handover from garage and went over all the various interfaces; real time Sat Nav, internet, and many more to enjoy getting used to over the next few weeks. On the road the car and the driver feel evincible. It just morphs around you sport seats are excellent and not too hard or heavily bolstered the gearbox is a delight both in manual and auto mode. Damping is good in all modes if a bit fidgety in sport plus over some of the country lanes. Power delivery is instant and after coming out of the 730 it was too easy to see 70 ++mph in short order. Sound is fantastic and exhaust will pop and crackle even at low speed when changing down a gear.
I will right a more comprehensive report once I have got to grips with all the setting but for now I have a big grin on my face and can't wait to get out and drive again.

Some pics below not great quality but will sort out this weekend.

Phish enjoy the moment tomorrow, you will not be disappointed.

Nice! I was wondering about user name being very close to the Vortex Ring State phenomenon that helicopters experience. I didn't think to put 1 and 1 together and figure that he might be a helicopter pilot. I am one also. Not currently flying though, as I am flying a desk right now, but my main aircraft is the MH-60S Knighthawk Helicopter. It's like a blackhawk, but it's a Naval version.

I can't wait to order the F10 M5 in the states though, it'll definitely have more of a takeoff feeling than a helicopter. LOL! :S

BMW Dave flys some decent kit also.
