Besides, your buddy with that M5 probably won't be able to drive it for a few weeks due to the oil pump issue anyway.
Main reason I'm ordering one this year is due to the end of the V8 in the M3. I'm gonna find it very hard not to take it out much in the winter time in England.

Funny you say that about the M5's oil pump. While I was chatting with him, he told me that BMW bought his car back as the computer kept on braking in it. I'm assuming he had a lemon. Now he gets a brand new M5 and they have issues with the oil pump.
