I was on the way to the dallas auto show yesterday with my friends dad who's got an 03 M5. riding in that car gave me a true sense of what fear is. On the tollway a M3 pulled up next to us and took of. We then blew past it going about 130. After slowing down to 70 next to each other we both raced up to about 150 and we were at least 5 car lengths in front of him. the dinan M5 is making about 450hp and has no top speed govoner. Several months ago my friend was driving the car and we were going to waco at 2am. We got up to 180. I nearly wet my pants.

I have taken a vow to never ride in another car again because I know that none can be as good as that! (unless its another M5)

It's not like I carry a camera with me every where i go.

The colors of the car are amazing, carbon black with a carmel color interior. I love the suede headliner.

the amazing thing is that in those cars, even when traveling over 120, you can't tell, the ride is so smooth. but accelerating that hard in 3rd and 4th gear is orgasmic.

yep 120mph is incredibly smooth on the bimmer ..
i did that on sea-to-sky (vancouver) and the 330 just grips and grips and keep going even though it's incredibly fast !!

on the other hand, 180 is fearful !

The M5 is an awesome car...last year for bimmerfest, I drove an M5 from LA to SB with 2 M3s (one of them being bigtime007). They took the go and I caught up and passed them in a short time period a couple times. The car even has power in 6th. Then I saw a 355 and I fell back and cruised with the older owner and finally a nice open strecth of road was available and I chased it on its tail in 5th gear up to 150mph and was going to pass when the turn came so we slowed down. The 355 could not pull away. But I must say, the 360 F1 coupe I drove this weekend was an entirely different experience. I will post pics of the 360 when I have a chance to go take some. Hopefully this weekend.:D
