Hi all

I have had my M5 Comp since the start of the year and 3,500 miles. Donnington with tartufo interior.

I have had the last few generations of M5 (E60 and F10) with a GTR and RS6 in between. I much prefer the F90 to the F10 but the E60 remains my favourite as it felt significantly lighter / more nimble than the later models. The exhaust cracks on the F90 also needs sorting out - I read so many posts stating how people love the "pops and bangs" but it just feels so contrived - I drive in manual 95% of the time and every time you back off after accelerating the exhaust cracks, it would be much better if it only did it every now and then.

Other than that minor point (which you can drive around), the F90 is a great car. However, for me it is not a car that encourages me to get up at 5:30 on a Sunday to go for a drive. So, I have a new 720s arriving on 2 September to fill that particular void....

Hi all,

After never thinking I would get rid of my 2016 RS3, my head was turned by an M5. Five days later, I have made the leap and pick it up on Sept 4th. Alpine White, Non Comp, Comfort, Sports exhaust and mirror and grille surrounds painted gloss black. I’m genuinely very excited....

Be good to get involved in here after being over on Audisport.net for so long.
Cheers,

Rad
