Uh, NO.

What you're thinking of is SSG, which is merely Steptronic with paddle shifters. They use the Alpina Shifttronic wheel to retrofit it on to Steptronic cars. They are still, truely, just automatics,

Sequential 'M' Gearbox is only for M cars, though some non-M cars will be getting SMG (sequential manual gearbox). Sequeitial trannys are not easy or cheap to retrofit onto a car. These are, truely, manuals.

AWESOME PICS of the M5. I miss the lights, but I love the look of the new gauges. And I LOVE the redline.

I was reading about new M5 from some X-YUgo website.
MAYBE It will cost 120 k euros in Some parts of X-Yug because they are not in European union and they pay more taxes on these cars. Anyways the 2003 M5 is 110 k and with taxes around 130k. Trust me by the time we reach 2005 then new M5 will not be under 150g canadian.

I was in the new E60 the other day and it doesn't look like anything special! The exterior looks exactly what the pictures show. No difference in real life. I like the E39 interior better to be honest.

car prices on the same model do not jump that high
+ 10k on the previous model is the most.

Unless you live in russia where inflation can rich 1000% in 24hours

ok then how come the new Mercedes E55 AMG is
$ 113 000 canadian but the precious one was just over 100gs? 2000 E55) that car with taxes is abpout 135 - 140 GS.

M5 was always more expensive for some reason . So that means we should be looking at about 120 000 for 2005 M5.

aNyways these Cars will cost much more in Europe becuase Canadian STANDARD is prrety low and BMW is cheaper in Canada.

Too bad I dont live in Russia ,I was reffering for X-YUGO it sands for Yugoslavia!

And inflation is not a big deal when you purchase a car in Euros. Euros sre Euros and you know the worth of euro and you can figure out how much you have to pay of your car.

like i said 10k at the most.
here are the prices in US. M5 was only 100 bucks more. But compare the resale value.

I really hope your right.

But considering the technology of the V10 engine and a tough SMG tranny to handle all that power, I find it hard to believe there gonna be successful in keeping the price below 150G's....

good! i want it to cost more, way more. I dont understand why bmw's are always cheaper then Mercedes, like M3 and CLK55 the difference is HUGE. Is Mercedes really that much better inside? like $7000+ better? Is about time bmw sell for what its really worth.
