I'd like to know how BMW is going to make this one work! In the M3 the gear selector is down where the manual transmission is now and behind the steering wheel too. If they're going to put it in the next generation E60 then how are they going to implement the iDrive and the SMG3/6 spd all in the same space without becoming too confusing for us poor folks. I know that it would definitely be sacrilage if they were to put the SMG3 shifter on the steering column a la the 745i.

I think I would definately order SMG if it was avaliable. Just in case I hated it I will prob put down two deposits one for the first year it came out and then another order for the following year. So I would have the chance to get another m5 incase the first model year is shady. Also everyone knows that the first year you have to order from pictures not being able to see the actual car and the actual color on the car in real life. Anyway its a long time away.

I wouldn't bother with the first year...I'd just wait for the 2nd year's production run. Let them iron out the bugs then.

I agree, but most likely the resale value of an m5 will remain at msrp or over, so I kind of would not loose anything. Plus it would be so hard to see an e60 m5 blow past my e39 m5 for a good year until I get one. I kind of have to have the new things call me childish but im just a car nut.

Screw i-Drive! Why not stick to basics? After all, we're in it for the driving of the car aren't we?
