Wow, a very good review. Here's the highlight:

The on-paper changes are modest, but the effects tangible: this is an M5 that's both comfier and sharper than the competition model.

According to my SA, 350. With the chip shortage, that number is likely accurate. Unless they continue making them for MY 2023

With a sticker price of around $144K, I don't know how much of the demand will be. I don't think will be as much as the M2 CS, but time will tail. I did got ask if I want one from my SA, but I don't know if I need one yet. Lol

I think we have it cheap in the US. If you add the alcantara, CF bits and the brakes to a similarly specced M5C (with the current lack of discounts) , itís actually a pretty good deal.

No, I'll still post here considering I am a BMW lover as well and feel genuinely happy seeing other people acquire their cars and post about them. Rennlist doesn't have the same feel as E46Fanatics and Bimmerpost, and I haven't spent much time on 6SpeedOnline. I'll post on the P-Car forums just to up my Porsche acumen, but I don't think I'll have much fun there.

Cool can't wait for the car to arrive don't mind sharing the built spec? Been to Stuttgart and took the factory tour was lucky to witness the GT2 RS built then you realize that why the reputation is so good.

I would LOVE to visit the Stuttgart factory as well as BMW's factory/the Welt. The GT2 RS is a killer car, and if I had the money (…and it came with a manual) it would be in my garage.

Here's a link to my build:

http://www.porsche-code.com/PNXQ3P78

TLDR: See the attached pics. Basically I'm going with Python Green, AeroKit (..painted body color rather than gloss black), RS Spyder wheels, etc. I originally started with Chalk Gray, but I see a lot of Chalk colored Cayennes and Macan's. I wanted something a little but more special feeling if I'm going to spend $3200 on paint. I also opted for no moonroof and fully painted mirrors. Little things I've noticed while visiting dealerships make the small details matter.

Here are pics of the mirrors fully painted that changed my mind. I feel like it looks a bit more premium.

Agreed! I really do love the M5CS. If I had a family and needed a big sedan, I would probably opt for it.

Thanks bro!

I sold the M4 on the forum over a month ago to RaceTruk. He's enjoying the Nardo Gray M4 on the streets of New York as we speak.

A very proper BMW: very specific BMW cold refined design and an excellent performance machine.
One of the few bavarian models that still carry the true BMW DNA...

The same was voiced by many of the 2018 M3 CS. The driving dynamics compared to comp are greater than what's on paper would suggest. And the way it looks… well that in itself could (almost) justify the added cost. Especially with some of deals that could be had toward the end of the run. Will be interesting to see if those deals can be had with the M5CS.
