Ditto! There have been pics of parked M3's before but nobody got the idea to take a pic of the dash

Confirmed information: There is a Touring (Station wagon) version coming of the E60 M5 soon. Also, a L version of the E60 5-series (Think 550iL) is coming with a lenghtened wheelbase.

Best regards,

Jussi

Touring M5 has been in testing for some time, they have had major problems withthe touring rear axel, which is very different from the sedans.

L version of E60 is made in China for Chinese market
Official pitures were released in China a week or so ago

The L version of the 5er is supposedly to be sold in Europe in 2007 as well. At least that's what my reseller told me that they were informed from Münich that it'll be available in Europe as well. Sounds kind of strange, but that's what they insisted on.

I just wish BMW would put the N73B60 V12 on the E63 chassis. A 660i Coupé would be perfect, and the V12 is way too magnificent of an engine to keep just in the 7er. Given that the 6er is more of a Coupé version of the 7-series with it's luxury and gizmos, rather than of the 5er in my opinion (and it's pricing), it would be fitting. But this is just my wish, no facts or indications from BMW that this would ever happen. Damn, it almost feels like the incredible V12 goes to waste just in the 7er.

Best regards,

Jussi
