test drove an F10 M5

So I was fortunate enough to test drive a F10 M5 today! Very nice car.
The exhaust sounds amazing. Took it on the highway and set the settings to sport+. I punched it and acceleration was amazing. The car is very fast. The DSC light was flashing when I was on 3rd gear at around 5-6k rpm. Tons of power, however, it was not really fun. The car is so smooth that you dont feel anything. Seriously! I personally rather have a E39 M5, which in my opinion is the best M5. Nothing against the F10 M5, but I really expected to be but I wasnt...

Was its it broken in? I think I read after the first service the limiter is turned off or some ish like that.

This is how I feel sometimes about my e92 even with an e85 tune and 450whp.. my 1G dsm at 400whp "felt" much faster, though my e92 would eat it alive above 60mph
