    Former AMG Boss becomes Boss of BMW M Company!

    Now this is really a big surprise:
    former AMG Boss Ulrich Bruhnke who resigned recently, takes over the M Company from BMW.
    Starting with Dec. 1st, Ulrich Bruhnke will be the boss of the well known BMW M Department, being responsible of cars like the BMW M3, M5 and so on.

    So now that this change has taken place, what type of new things do expect from BMW M? Maybe with en ex-AMG man gone to BMW M, maybe you will join him oneday?

    My BMW times are over, forever. I need real performance, a BMW M3, M5, M6 doesn't satisfy my needs. Right now I'm looking at the Lamborghini Murcielago, Porsche GT2 (or GT3 RS) and maybe (if my wife pushes me hard enough ) the upcoming new Ferrari 460 GT.
    My E55 AMG is just a nice interlude to be able to move my whole family on the weekend and still be able to have some fun. But as soon as the kids are a little bit older (youngest has to be minimum 2 years old), they can drive in the back of a sports car. My little daughter loved to drive in my Turbo, she still asks me where my Porsche is. Her first words were "Bear", "Dada" and "Porsche". No kidding.

    Re: Former AMG Boss becomes Boss of BMW M Company!

    Your BMW times are over? Im very sorry to hear that.

    A Murcielago! Saw one yesterday parked in the Valet section right in front of the mall, pewter color with black leather and pewter piping. This car was absolutely gorgeous!!! It belonged to none other than "Babyface" Edmonds. Sat in the resturant not to far away, saw him get in the car and drive off. This car is incredibly loud!!! Sounds deadly too!!! The Murcielago is a very nice car but does not seem very driveable, especially that the EPA fig's are 13/9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very nice, but not very practical. At all.

    Three cars that Im really anticipating(excluding the 6 and the M5) are the Boxster coupe, 997 Turbo, and upgraded SL_ _? AMG

    P.S. RC, Do you think AMG is having a problem with exclusivity?

    There are less E55 AMG on the market than 996 Turbo...I don't think they have a problem with exclusivity. The only problem AMG has is with weight and the base Mercedes products. A lot of people in Germany (incl. me) are buying AMG cars because they look like ordinary Mercedes models. Most people can't make a difference, a huge advantage if you want to keep understatement which is very important in our envious german society.

    WOW! People must be pretty envious over there if you feel you have to drive an understated car.

    We are the country of the re-badged Mercedes S classes (S320 instead of S600), Mercedes E classes (E240 instead of E500), BMW 5 and 7 series.
    I remember one of my customers asking me in my business if the Mercedes E class outside is mine. He was full of admiration (and envy ) and finally said "you must earn a lot of money to be able to afford such a car". The funny thing is: he thought I own a E320.
