20" forged wheels / tires
M Sport exhaust
+25hp
0.1sec faster to 100kph
stiffer engine mount springs
upgraded suspension + 7mm lower
high gloss shadow line trim
high gloss grille
mirror caps
lip spoiler
rear diffuser
side gills
Ö I suspect there's other stuff I'm not thinking of, too.
yes...M tri-color seat belts.

More importantly post driving impressions. Was your M4 a comp package? I'm looking at the swap from an M3 (non comp) to an M5 comp. I'd love to here from a ride comfort and road noise perspective how they compare. Its not like my F80 beats me up at all but I'd love a bit more subtle ride and a quieter cabin for making calls on long drives.
I know the regular M5 would be great but I'm a sucker for the CP wheels and lower suspension (no interest in modding my car from factory, just a personal thing).

M4 wasn't CP. My initial impressions:

- ride comfort is markedly improved in the M5, including the seats themselves. They're much more supportive and I sit at a better angle that allows the lumbar support to do more good.
- cabin is quieter as well, though the M4 wasn't bad
- M5 is an absolute monster all the way through the power band. It has significantly more power than my M4 in every situation whether it's off the line or punching the gas in 5th gear on the freeway. Of course, it has the horses, but it's surprising that this sedan blows the doors off my old coupe.
- fit and finish throughout is much more refined

Totally worth the price difference to me... and I did get it for 7K off sticker

beautiful and thanks for the feedback. I'll drive both before ordering but I suspect the CP will fit the bill perfectly for me.

And I thought the M-tricolor seat belts were standard on the base M5 too? Well, at least thatís what I assumed from watching a few of the youtube reviews on the M5, but I guess those were euro-spec base M5 and not US.

Oh well, guess Iíll have to pony up for the Competition then... you know... just for the belts

Not standard in Europe, just most buyers add as an option - a couple of hundred quid from memory.

Hey Everyone,

Looking for some opinions on the exterior color for my M5C that I'm ordering this week.

Here is what I'm definitely getting in my build:

Silverstone Interior
Executive Package
B&W Sound
Moonroof - 90%
Black Wheels - 90% but could move off of that depending on the final color.

I really like the frozen colors (grey and black) but I have two small boys, work a ton and I don't think I'll end up giving it the necessary attention to keep it top notch so I'd fading on that idea.

Ideally, I'd like to stick with the standard colors but I could be convinced to go individual if there is something that I totally love, like Nordo.

My top picks are Brand Hatch Grey, Alpine White and Nordo Grey (love this car - https://www.flickr.com/photos/147421...h/33221874348/). Does anyone know the difference between brand hatch grey and Grigio Telesto Pearl (https://f90.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...569374&page=20). I think that color is amazing as well.

I know color is a very personal decision but there is a lot of awesome cars on this forum and would love some feedback/ideas.

Thanks!
