M5 in!

Sold my M3 in April (took close to 3 mos to sell it in the private mkt to get a decent price), but after just weeks into selling the car, my M itch came back. So I visited my rep and he showed me a stunning silverstone '13 M5 demo. I absolutely fell in love w/ it and placed the order then. Fast forward to yesterday, received a call from my rep that my car came in 2 weeks early! They are prepping it as we speak and I'm soooooo excited! This will be my 1st 100k car, so this holds a very special time in my life. Photos to come as soon as I pick it up. Just figured I'd share w/ my M3 folks!

Congrats on the new M5! What color and options?

Now you need to find some S/C'd M3's and see how you stack up! You may be surprised!

Congrats. I'm scared to check it out because I'll want to sell my m3 for it.

Hey guys. Sorry haven't checked in here as I've been on m5board of late. Sadly, the car is at the dealer now as I couldn't put the car in gear. Transmission fault light came on and doesn't go anywhere. I couldn't even disengage the parking brake so it was towed to the dealer last week. A little disappointed now and not a great way to start off the ownership of a M car.

Well if there's any upside to this, the dealer can take care of your recall before the line gets long..............Phil

this does suck. It's exciting on one side that I finally can afford a car like this, but on the other side of the fence, this is starting to leave a sour after taste.
