Just didnt feel that quick!
Now that is going to sound strange i know but, it didnt. He even thought the same when he came out and drove the 335i. Hard to explain but, i guess its just that the M5 kind of shields you from the power at your command. Bit like i felt when i came from the FBO Focus ST i guess.
Anyone else driven one? Did you feel the same way?
That's surprising. Having been in the e60 m5 I thought it was nuts fast and by all accounts the new one is quicker. Don't suppose it has the n/a v10 urgency and sound but I'm sure it's rapid. Your feelings must come from a combination of having super high expectations before driving it and also how the car is effortlessly fast.
