2012 M5 - test drive PDI.

So I get to the dealership to visit a tech buddy of mine and arrived just in time for the final PDI inspection and a treat to go out shot gun in the M5.
The brakes are ENORMOUS! He wasn't use to the car yet so we kept the traction control on for a while. 3 different driving/shift modes. Econ, sport and sport 2. we weren't sure what that meant. So after blasting it around down the side streets for a bit we decided it was time to remove traction control and see what she can do. well after playing around with the million adjustments on the seats we went for a boot!!!! lit the tires up in 1st and 2nd and then went from 0-160k in about 4 seconds... down the street.. car looks hot in imperial blue. very impressive features all in all.

Just thought I'd share my experience.
