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.

One of my friends got brand new M5 and I personally think this is best ever made engine. acceleration is on this vehicle is something unbelievable same as handling. If you would like to go wild you better buy manual transmission because SMG is kinda dump.
