    I really haven't had my car for that long and im thinking about trading it in at a local dealer because they have a 2015 BMW M5 and i always wanted an M5 i haven't test drove it but when i saw it i was..... Literally fan guying because the M5 used to be the car that i would always say i was going to buy but then Tesla came out with the MS and then the P85D and changed my mind and just went with the Tesla (For some odd reason i went with the Tesla ooh because no gas) but i have one question also has anybody test drove a M5 yet and if you have how does it compare to the MS by like handling,performance,build quality,etc.... I really don't know what to do im confused everybody in the family says not too but im just not fully sure what im going to do yet:cursing:

    Would love to see it and hear about the options. You should list it in the for sale section.

    Yeah ive had a lot of people interested in this car especially for the way the vehicle has been taken care of its washed and waxed every 2nd Friday and ive never missed a Friday but other than that if i were to be really honest the MS is getting kinda boring without the autopilot update i just need something to make the MS for interesting for me because right now it isn't but in a 2 week time period or less i will come to my decision im also right now even interested in getting a P90DL.

    You'll take a bath on selling it. What about it are you unhappy with? The M5 is a better track car and likely a nicer interior with a few more tech features.

    If you're a fan of tech features, it's pretty dang hard to beat the MS. It epitomizes advanced technology. Just to name a few: software updates, rest API, a gigantic google map that is second to none, most advanced BMS and charging infrastructure etc.

    Ill take a car that I can fill up in my driveway any day over one that has to go to an antiquated gas station. That's also super high tech, IMO.

    I imagined you going to the dealership for the OP, negotiating on his behalf, and then hand-delivering his M5. And if it all took too long, pushing him off a cliff.

    So you did opticoat and wax? Didn't someone here do that, and realized his opticoat was showing swirls due to waxing?

    I wouldn't do it tbh, I've been in my cousin's M5, my P85D sh!ts all over it in terms of speed and being super smooth.

    Also the infotainment in BMW/Merc/Audi make me wanna blow my brains out.
