I'm surprised BMW is giving him such a rare model for a daily driver loaner for free. Must be nice to be Matt 🤣

That is the UK press car number plate, so I assume he's getting a different car for himself? Or they are letting him use the press car for a while?

With the money he's making from YouTube he could easily afford one.

He is an influential youtuber. BMW wants good reviews for their upcoming electric cars.

BMW fire-sale Matt a M5-CS after the recent rigged video comparing M5CS vs M8 and M5C, rewarding his loyalty 🤣

Is the 2.88 0-60 from a dead stop or with a one foot rollout? I'm not sure how these race boxes work. If it's without a rollout, that is so impressive.

Not surprised at all. He mentioned it couple months ago that he might be getting one

From a dead stop, its rare we use the one foot roll out over here. Its been seen a few times as well. Look how the car absolutely fires off the line, and just piles on the speed, compared to the M3. I know its a rwd M3, but even so, the M5 is pulling hard from the get go.

Thanks. Very impressive. My X5MC pulls and pulls, but has to lug around a lot more weight. I need to experience the M5. Wish it looked better to me.

I did this exact move. Sold the f95 and ordered the CS. Going to be a big difference in performance.

I was in the same boat as you, but figured "fuck it" I'll drive one for a few years, and the CS will hold better value over time, besides being a quick daily.

I'm glad he got loaned the M5 CS as a daily. It just means more video time of it on his channel. Looking forward to the matchups.

I guess Matt's baby is the luckiest. Will get to enjoy Carbon Bucket seats from the get go.

But then he would still have to look at it, with the beautiful M5CS right beside it.

I think we're going to see a lot of carwow races with the M5 CS now.

Smart move from BMW marketing to lend him this... Since he does all kind of random drag races, the M5CS will most likely destroy most of what it's up against.
