Almost 11 months into ownership and I am enjoying Das Beast more and more. Every drive be it round the corner or 300 miles is a joy. Although people say the M5 doesn't sound especially great, after a long line of oil burners I ( and current Mrs L ) think it sounds awesome. Last couple of months the car's character has changed , assume it is loosening up . I am usually loosing interest around this point of ownership , but this time its the opposite. Got a feeling its here to stay ( where have I heard that before). Here's to many more years!!!! of ownership.
