I could be dreaming but I swear I saw a Sport Plus Mode option when he was dialing up the steering. I thought it was deleted on the LCI??

He does not select Steering on the menu. He only goes down to Chassis.

The exterior is exactly what I ordered. Looks great!!!

The sound of that engine and exhaust note are exhilarating.

It would have been nice to see some lap time comparisons. The suspension settings are all relative, so saying the stiffest isn't appropriate for the bumpy track is hard to justify without some timing info. Sport plus suspension does not imply as stiff as a race car, for example.

Great video! There are so many different drive setting combinations to select in these cars. I like how he breaks down which blend of settings are best from an aggressive driving standpoint. I think the piloting aspect of driving an //M vehicle is what makes them so much fun. You're literally tuning the car as you drive.

I just wish there were more than 2 M-Drive buttons. 4 would be better. Or 6.

From my personal experience in the F80, the highest throttle output doesn't happen with Sport + chassis / Sport + steering, but rather with Sport chassis / Sport + steering. So when he talks about how lightening the dampers allows for more agile and aggressive driving I definitely can attest to that.

Agree. Lots of folks complain about the number of choices but its one of my favorite aspects.

I thought these guys did a great job on the videos. They have a real passion for the M5.

Pretty much. Boring. Unsubstantiated claims. What the hell happened to EVO? Maybe time to cancel the subscription.

Laser Lights - US 5 Series

Does anyone knows as to why the U.S. market 5 Series is not getting the Laser Lights? Not a single dealer can order the lights. Yet, the 3 series, 7 and 8, X4, X5 X6,, and X7 has the Laser Lights.

Also, the BMW USA has taken away the automatic soft close doors, 4-zone climate control from the 5 Series, and does not allow the touch control climate control being installed in the 5 series, while all the countries which are part of North America and Europe urope and the Middle East gets them as standard item.

Also, no recorder available for the 5 Series in the USA.

It seemed the older your G30 is, the more equipped and options your 5 Series have or received.
