^The storm trooper looking eyesore?
Yeah they only saving grace for matte cars, is pearl paint like the ones lambo etc. makes, those flat primer looking paint jobs are ugly as fuck.
I would say go for the M5, I m not sure why people hate on this car so much. I refrain from arguing on the internet about what car looks good or what not, these are all personal opinions.
Im looking into one myself or a M6 if all goes well, i'd go for the MT one just to be on the safe side. Drive it in 8 cylinder mode should save you some fuel, plus Get a 2nd beater for daily driving duties.
By 2015 why won't have enough oil to power a lambo gas hustler. lol
Would you agree that those wheels are hideous?
As a side note, I actually really like the look of the E60 5 series. I think the taillights are really cool and I'm a fan of the 'eyebrows' on the headlights.
Not sure what you mean, it seems like I'm the only one who dislikes the M5 here.
my next car.
Yes, I got my reflectors painted to match the car. So, I guess not completely identical to that picture. haha
There were two Coupe drivers here. The other is also Sapphire Black. The car fits in well with the demographic here.
no no no no no
agree, don't mess with the headlights or taillights. Do get rid of the round parking lights, they are possibly the worst effort (maybe least effort) at automotive design I've ever seen, BMW should be ashamed. They look like they just came up with those in an afternoon when they decided to make a US spec model.
You can deactivate just two cylinders?
Been researching Quattroportes too, they're kinda dated looking now though, but I have always liked those as well and it may be a better car than the M5 for me - I would prefer the facelift one though, and those are still expensive. It looks like they aren't nearly as expensive to maintain as I'd thought though, certainly not like a Ferrari, especially with the ZF box. Some guy said he was budgeting $2500 a year for maintenance on his Qporte apart from tires, which includes $1500 6k mile service intervals.
Doesnt GM have a feature like this on their 5.7 hemi engines? Also, I remember one cadillac with a 16 cylinder that could also run on 8 and 4..
yeah they do, and BMW has had 12 to 6 deactivation since the very first V12 750i in the 80's - but I am trying to get my head around 10 to 8...
Well the M5's "eco" mode is 400hp, so having it run on 6 with 400hp wouldn't be economical.
The new 5,5l bi turbo 63 amg's econo mode is 31 mpg.
