I hate seeing stuff like this, but these things (and high horsepower cars in general) need to be respected. Otherwise they will bite you.

Crazy!

I had seen it posted on an F90 M5 group and really sucks.

Looks pretty bad, hopefully the driver is OK!

Please someone tell me this guy (and it has to be a guy) turned the "nannies" off and drove like an idiot. I've found my M5 to be fantastic to drive and very controlled and reasonable especially with the AWD.

Edit: OK went to the FB page. Guy claims (probably true) that a Buick came into his lane and hit him and he went into the pole.

My salesman and others wanted me to clown after purchasing a new F90 back in January. I gave it a couple of revs/pops and then speed off... In AWD. 😅

Sidenote: link below of my first and only rwd burnout, the day after my break-in service.

well the car crashed ok but the right out of the dealership with 7 miles story makes no sense. can you get an aftermarket exhaust installed at the Dealership ? and the reflector deletes too? that's news to me

Rear drivers side of the car clearly has impact damage that wasn't caused from hitting the telephone poll...so another car hitting him there is a plausible story. If you scroll through all the pics, the passenger side of the car doesn't have damage (other than front quarter panel from poll impact)...which is what I'd expect.

This post should be taken down or the title should be edited. This is my friend's M5. He has had it for a year plus. Anyone who knows what a stock new M5 looks like would know that the exhaust, muffler and spoiler aren't OEM on that car.

He was side swiped as someone else mentioned. Sucks to see. The car is a beauty. Good thing is he is ok.

Owner about to leave the dealership: "So I can put this thing into rear wheel drive only right?"

Dealer: "Erm...yes, but I wouldn't do it on the roa..."

Owner: "Great! See ya!"

**Turns DSC off... goes into iDrive configures 2WD**

Owner: "watch this!"

Boot full of throttle...into a post.

FIN.

The above is a joke

Sorry to hear your mate lost his car this way, it looked tastefully modded too. Hope he's ok.

Sad to see a M5 totaled. I feel for your friend.

I was meaning the Buick, I thought I was quoting a reply... you can clearly see where someone merged into the back end of the M5... probably looking at their cell phone... this kinda shit bugs me because I see it all the time... it's getting so bad these days
