    F10 M5 Purchase or Not - What to look for

    The most important thing is to have a BMW warranty (mine has £250 excess) and ideally get one with FBMWSH. the M Multifunction seats are the best I’ve sat in. It is a really big car so 360 camera’s are nice to have. Adaptive suspension is also really good and would recommend - have it in comfort most of the time , and if you fancy a late night drive, stick it in sport! (Sport plus I find too firm on UK roads but mine is a competition pack) (not sure if all F10 M5’s has adaptive) Competition packs are overrated IMO. If you’re going to track the car, the ceramic brake option is incredible. Sound wise, I’ve sat in a car with B&O and it is better than HK. If I was buying again, my wish list would be: M multifunction seats Extended leather 360 cameras adaptive suspension ceramic brakes Bang and olufsen
  3. Spot on. A reliable car is usually a new <3y car. Why not spend £200-400 pcm on pcp and change your car every 3 years with service pack included. Especially if 0% apr / ultra low apr. £15000 over 3 years ain’t that bad!

    Coming Soon for E39 owners

    It depends on what the market is willing to pay for a particular solution more than the quality of materials. The more expensive double din fascia fitting kits are circa £120. Is this just the outer fascia or the cage as well? I assume your calculations on pricing take into account number of units you need to sell to have a ROI. I can imagine easily spending £10-20k taking into account personal time/investment.
