Sweet. I love the F10 but not quite as much as the F06. That M6 gran coupe is just so sexy... I would have mine in dark grey with the sakhir orange interior.

Congrats and enjoy!!

Last Tuesday I raced my boss stock 2013 GTR (545 HP) on the HWY, probably from 40 to 130. The F10 M5 has no turbo lag so it jumps right away, the result was just like in this video:

Beautiful car (your F10).

Exactly, the GTR is the best car in its class... but it's just a different class than the M5 / E63 / Jag XF-RS... and that's what I was looking for.

The M6 Grand Coupe is another beast, but it's $10k more expensive for exactly the same thing except the body... and it seats only four. The Sakhir Orange interior is an additional $3,900, ouch!

The consensus with that video is the M5 was modded.

Videos, or it didn't happen

The M5 F10 is an incredible car, its stupid to compare the two. Its obviously very quick on a roll. You're not going to find very many stock GT-R's, a simple midpipe and a tune and its game over... One is a luxury beast, another is a track monster. Silly. I do believe you the M5 will eventually pull up top, its a numbers game.

Its just as dumb of an argument as comparing the ISF to the GT-R on here. Pointless

The M5 is NOT a head turner, to the common eye its any other BMW. Although, that color you selected sure is pretty. Driving the GT-R breaks necks, constantly. Somebody is taking a picture of it everyday I drive it.

Are GTRs rare where you are at in Washington? I'm just curious since its a head turner there. I see them almost daily here in Vegas and they don't really turn heads unless it has a Liberty Walk kit ect.

Have you daily driven one?
The Ferrari F40 and the 1993 Celica alltrac are rare cars. GTRs? Aren't the production numbers similiar to ISFs? People stop at my house daily to do the slow drive, it's an attention *****.

This isn't about GTRs, its about his beautiful F10. I just think it's funny to compare the two.

Congrats on the upgrade. A couple of nights ago one guy was trying to race me on one of those. You could hear that at least had exhaust. I was like, men I was born at night but not last night And boy when he hit it, he was GONE

What's wrong with comparing the ISF and other vehicles? I am always interested to hear about how other vehicles stack up against the F. There are always some things that the F does better than other cars and vice versa. I enjoyed reading about the F10 M5 to ISF "comparison" so to speak.

The ISF and the M5 is a great comparison. The ISF M5 and the GT-R is a stupid comparison. It would be like comparing spoons to forks.
