    No bigger tank optional available. 68 liters is to small over all, but fuel consumption in normal driving is at 12 Liters/100 km. So you can live with it.

    How many km do you have now? I finally did 2900 km yesterday (came back from Italy) and today, the car is getting the mandatory rear axle oil exchange. So far, no issues (knock on wood). I had an issue with Apple CarPlay (sometimes it disconnected without a reason) but apparently, it was the lightning cable, it was damaged.

    You drive "normal"? Smiley Smiley

    I had a 12-13 l / 100 km fuel consumption during break-in, when I drove a constant 140 kph on the Autobahn. Smiley

    I am surprised however that on average, the E63's fuel consumption is under 18 liters (considering my driving style and the fact that I drive 99% of the time in Sport+ only).

    Well, for professional reasons I had to drive the whole last week with the G63. So I must confess that the M5 has just 1.200 km on the odo and therefore it’s still in break in. This in mind you can extrapolate what “normal” driving should be. But had a lot of full accelerations (limited at 5.5000 U/min of course) Autobahn driving at the allowed limit 170 kp/h and approximately 40% city commuting. All in all with an average consumption at 12 liters. Not bad so far. Driving of course also in sport+. Why? In this position and flaps open you have a very nice sound with a lot of backfires. Not to loud but loud enough. indecision Have to admit: the sound is a lot deeper as we’re used from the F10. It’s  still the typical s63 (BMW code) engine sound but it sounds more mature.i really like it.

    I hope BMW will introduce bigger fuel tank in future as 68 liters is too small, I hate to spent a lot of time at the fuel stations.

    BTW, bought new M5. Singapur Grey with full leather Black interior. All options except Ceramic brakes. Delivery is 04.06. Will post pics and impression immediately after the delivery. And yes, break-in period is very strict.

    Hi Kreso, have you got your M5?

    If yes, please share your impressions and driving experience with us.

    In last minute change I decided to order Competition package. Delivery is next week. Change the color to Bluestone Metallic. Competition package wheels, full Black leather interior. 

    I had a opportunity to drive normal M5 and Competition package recently at the same time. To be honest did not felt that big difference. M5 is still IMO the best power sedan on the market currently. But, it is not the sportscar. To be clear, neither is Panamera Turbo or GTS.

    @KresoF1

    so now almost 1 month passed by and how are your impressions of the M5 Competition?

    I'd love to see some pics as the Bluestone must look terrific on this car!

    So share some insights and pics with us, in last AB SportCars they've tested it against XE SV Project 8


    Re: 2018 BMW M5(G30) Thread Closed

    Little bit more patience...

    Last week of November I will post my little review and some nice pics of the car. Since that week I will be in Istria(Rovinj and Motovun) pictures will include some nice Istrian landescape.


    Re: 2018 BMW M5(G30) Thread Closed

    @KresoF1

    so, how was your first drive in your new ride?

    I'd be really keen on getting more insights from an owner rather than from any journalist!

    M5 Competition  is such a great car and IMHO together with E63s the ideal family car.

    Easy to do on turbo cars. ECU modulate the boost pressure to max torque output over.a really broad rpm range.

    My F10 M5 pulled like a train from about 1500 to just before redline. Torque is where the fun is. Smiley

    Just for additional info...my friends brandnew M5 Competition had less power than a stock normal M5 some month before on the same dyno.

    This car checks off several buttons for me, having owned several previous versions. I look forward to more ownership experience reports. I'm definitely considering one and have heard a CS version will be released in the coming year.

     


    Re: 2018 BMW M5(G30) Thread Closed

    did it have the 1200 mile breakin?  Soft wear unleashes more power after that service is completed.

    @KresoF1

    so, how‘s your M5 Competition doing?

    Any news/ review for us?

    Some pics of your car would also be nice because so far most cars I‘ve seen in person and/ or on pics haven either black or grey!

    Looking forward to your impressions and also comparison to E63s as I understood that car has beeb on your short list as well


    Re: 2018 BMW M5(G30) Thread Closed

    Little bit more patience... Will try to make the pics in next two days and post them here. Formal short review also.

    BTW, had a first small issue with the car. More in my formal review...
