So after a string of proper M cars and then a divorce followed by me losing my car mojo and running a few F10 520ds I decided life was too short and I may as well enjoy life on the breadline!!!!!!!! On Friday I swapped my F10 520d sport for this F10 M5 in Monte Carlo blue with Silverstone interior. It has a few nice options but as standard they are well specced so my only must have was sun protection glass. I have had two E46 M3s and then an E60 M5 before the wilderness years struck. The M3s were a delight to own and bullet proof. Nimble, quick and sounded great. Then it was my E60 M5 or as Zarnd called it, "The Warranty Slayer". Brutally fast over 6000rpm but so so fragile. It was in every month for one thing or another but that engine, oh my god that engine sounded incredible, it simply howled when pushed but the penalty was the most horrific fuel consumption. But I loved that car, then divorce struck.............. So fast forward a few years and I am back in a proper M. To say it is quick is like saying Mark Zuckerberg is slightly rich. It is biblically quick. The V10 lacked torque but this one has so much but then jus pulls all the way before snatching the next gear out of the seven in its perfect double clutch gearbox. That box is sublime, utterly seamless shifts and so fast. The sound is not as good as the V10 that is certain but it is by no means rubbish. If I can make it sound as good as it does for its 20 second cold start cycle then that would be perfect!!! The car is big but the chassis is wonderful, it grips well and has a lovely pointy front end that can understeer when really pressing on but stab the accelerator and the rear wants to step out killing any understeer lol. The interior is gorgeous, it even has the same smell that my old E60 had. This car will do me in financially but life is too short to say no. If you can find a way to do it then why not!!!!!!
