Discussion in 'M5 (1984-present)' started by SimonH, Apr 3, 2019.
Well 1200 miles came up and car went in for service, got a loaner 68 Plate M4, what a come down did I miss the M5 CP.
wow - an 86 plate !
back to the future
With a sunroof!
Sunroofs were the bees knees back in 86.
Ricky says "F90 feels more M than an M3".
Bodes well for the G80.
Edited, that's what it did to me.
I’m not sure id agree with that.
Arguably they are probably getting less M as the generations move on.
Heavy lass, that M5!
It must be heavy I was out and a m5 cp flew past me and we had a little play, happy to say my little m3 was quicker
You were probably holding on for dear life and the M5 Competition owner was enjoying the relaxing drive with the massage function whilst being totally confident about the road holding ability of the 4WD system. (I haven't even got one yet)
Can't lie, I am tempted by an M5 for next car...
I was looking at the M5 CP and the chap at the dealership said wait for the new M3 as it will be awesome and the M5 is too heavy!
did he also mention that it will not have the 4.4 V8 monster engine and will rattle like an old tin can
It won't rattle as much as they have stopped filling them full of old nails!
OY Im not an old nail...Im a mature one
meant throughout the car not the driver. I always said I wouldn't buy another black car but the M5 CP in black looked stunning
Ha ha is was a nice smooth road but I don’t doubt he was more comfortable
I’m trying to do a deal on one as we speak, I really like them just don’t know whether to wait till they are in the 50’k region
I think it depends on the deal. Whenever you buy you will be hit by depreciation but I prefer to have a good deal and perhaps buy up to 1 year old. That way the car has lost a chunk of value in year 1. However if you buy new and with a hefty dealer deposit contribution plus you can spec the car to how you want it might be the way to go. Personally I hate high monthly costs and would rather that money earned tax relief elsewhere.
