Got my new M5 a few days ago, and I look forward to driving it every day. It actually reminds me of when I first got my E39 M5 in 2000.
I've had a few Mercedes and a Corvette in between, but I think I'm glad to be back in an M5.
Those active seats are downright bad to the bone. I'm still learning all the new features, but loving every minute of it.
I read a post the other day about riding in a car vs. driving it, and I have the exact same feeling. My 2004 E55 was awesome (still kind of sad to get rid of it), but man, this M5 feels like I'm really driving the car again. The best part is that if I have to talk on the phone or do whatever else, just throw it into automatic.
My Treo 650 works like a champ with the Bluetooth.
I love everything about this car, couldn't be happier.
My only complaints are as follows:
1) I have to wait 3000 miles to actually have fun with it. My guess is that I will break and start hammering it around 700 miles. Just not sure I have the will power.
2) I wish they would have made more agressive styling vs. standard 5 series.
3) For the love of god, why are all of these german car makers putting Continental tires as OEMs on their cars (same thing with my E55). Having worked with and knowing Firestone / Bridgestone make the best tires in the business, I wish they came with some REO50's or SO3's. Of course no French Michelins (for a magnitude of different reasons).
4) The speed limiter. Ridiculous.
My 2 cents!
