    Gentlemen I’ve been lurking in the margins quietly ignoring all the depreciation threads :muttley:
    Anyway, I’m entertaining the idea of looking at an F10 M5 Competition as there’s a few cracking spec cars with low mileage for not a lot of coin about. Any of you guys had much exposure to the car, owned etc as I’d love to hear your feedback on it. I have driven them on many occasions but it was a while ago and not for very long so I can’t really comment. M2 Competition is on the radar too but wouldn’t seriously pursue this until the deals start rolling out into next year.

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    Just about the best value for money at the moment. Go for it.

    Can't say i can help with having owned or driven one. But as above, do it. Great value, yesterday i was browsing them on Autotrader and competition aside you can get what look to be good examples for late 20s :eek::thumbsup::cool:

    I had a f10 for 2 years. Brilliant piece of kit, but if you really enjoyed the RS3 nimbleness and traction, I`d say you`ll get bored with the f10 very quickly

    I had one for a year or so.

    A brilliant fast cruiser but not the sharpest or most dramatic car out of the box. Very easy to get up to way in excess of the speed limit without realising quite how fast you are going.

    They are easily tuneable and tweakable and can be made to be a lot of fun.

    Mine ran a DMS map, Evolve downpipes and a switchable exhaust plus a set of AC Schnitzer springs to make it a little more planted. Sounded like thunder and went as fast as anything I have ever driven.

    Great build quality of a little bland inside.

    Very rewarding when you get it all hooked up.

    Excellent value for money right now.

    Brakes and steering were the weakest points.

    Just quickly mentioning about depreciation, the RS3 I had for nearly 10 months and covered 8k miles and I only had £300 negative equity which let’s be honest is bloody fantastic compared to what Ive been used to with BMW. Audi play the marketing game so much better.

    After the F80 M3 I had the F10 M5CP for 20k/1yr. Best car I’ve ever owned, by far. It made the M3 seem like a vegetarian eco car!
    Except in snow, it was the most effortless machine to drive.
    But maybe it was just too good, nothing was an effort for it. Maybe there was too little thrill. I used to say that the only way you knew you were going warp speed, around a corner was to study the HUD and look outside for the chevrons! The car did it all. At most speeds the car was very quiet (disconnect the fake sound), but you soon learned to recognise the sounds of going seriously fast, the engine note quietly became more serious.
    In the the end it just didn’t fit my outdoors country lifestyle - seriously, it hated forestry tracks!
    Replaced it with a Discovery 5 daily and a 911 for high days.
    But I know I’ll eventually buy another F10M5CP.

    I think it ultimately depends on your outlook of the car Pen, and where your attitudes lye ?. If you feel you have calmed down a little, and want a very fast car, that cossets you, and offers luxury aplenty, then this is your car.
    If you still want the absolute ultimate in handling, and direction changes, then it may not be the right time to jump in, just yet ?.
    I love the M5, but it isnt a B road shredder that the others are. It is a big car, that does appear to shrink around you when going at some lick. But as others have said, it is a bargain for the performance and luxury, that you are getting.

    Maybe time to reacquaint yourself with a test drive, and see if its the right machine for you ?. :)

    Owned one for 30 mths, awesome machines, utterly destroys most cars from 90-140. Worth it for that alone. If I didn’t hate my job I would have kept mine longer.

    I had mine for a year and 4.5k miles. Sold it privately for a decent £. Ultimately for a weekend family car it failed to keep me entertained after an E92 M3, particularly once the warp speed factor wears off.

    Realised a 2 in 1 family and fun car might not exist so now on the hunt for a V10 R8

    Oh and F10 is a very capable car for sure but, as someone already said, I think you’d get bored real quick. bahnstorming mile muncher (which may be good for work) but not the same appeal as modding a mid size sports saloon / hatch .....
