    Porker:

    The CS has had a busy few months, 15k km now done. It remains an absolute blast. Last trip was to Gstaad to pick up the green 500E you see in the photos, and from there over the Alps to Provence in France for the family Holiday (some truly fabulous roads in that region), and then back to Alps, and then up to Germany. Most of it loaded with 1 of 2 dogs, and 1 of 2 children, and heavily loaded up on Côte du Rhone on the way back (hence the lowered ride height in some photos).

    The car remains an absolute dream, so versatile. In standard mode it cruises along better than the E63 would (comfier ride, smoother 'box). Once in M1 (everything turned to 11, and 4WD Sport), it's more lively and more fun to drive than my E46 M3 CSL ever was, for example. If you feel like playing, select M2 and you're sliding around in a cloud of your own smoke in 2WD mode. Fantastic fun.

     

    Haha Frank,

    Madame's 500E [1992Smiley] was exactly that met green but with tan interior - our first non 911 as the Labs were no longer fitting.  The best MBs are built by "PorscheSmiley".  Nice buy.

    Really?? It's called Malachitgrün if I'm not mistaken, you have any photos from back in the day? This one is a '91.

    Frank, the CS must  really be something. Some strong statements there. CH did also rave about it. You are lucky to enjoy it .... and 15k in just a few month angel 

    I also remember the Malachitgrün from the time. There must of been one or two around me as to me it was the ''normal'' color for that car indecision

    lovely


    Re: 2022 BMW M5 CS

    I'll be switching to winter tires shortly, any recommendations?

    Re: 2022 BMW M5 CS

    Doesn’t BMW have recommendations? I doubt that there are too many brands that produce a winter tire in the required sizes.

    Best experience with Pirelli Scorpion Winter (there is also a Winter 2 but I have no experience with this one) and Michelin Alpin 4PA and Pilot 5. Continental WinterContact TS860/870 also seems to be a decent winter tire.

    Ask about the BMW recommendation, I am pretty sure one of these tires is recommended.

    Thanks, heard good things about the Pirelli indeed, will ask at the dealer when it goes in for service.

    Went to the designated winter set for the M5, 19" with Michelin Alpin 5. Happy to have a size smaller than the summers, always prefer a bit more sidewall and a smaller wheel, visually and dynamically. 

    In RWD mode I assume it'll be quite amusing on relatively narrow 265's.

    Frank, 

    I love those wheels had 'em on the M8 CCkiss

    Wouldn't mind keeping them for summers as well, but the rears are a bit narrow for decent grip (265).

    Took the car out on some brilliant roads in France, near freezing temperatures and rain soaked roads, car was an absolute blast. I remain a huge fan.

    Two very different flavors of quick 5-series.

    Re: 2022 BMW M5 CS

    ..and which one is the best choice ? 

    Green of course Smiley


    Re: 2022 BMW M5 CS

    That really depends what you're looking for, the Alpina is much more comfortable. Supremely comfortable actually, the M5 is much more playful, and doesn't fly under the radar so well. In a straight line there's nothing to seperate them, both very quick cars.

    M5 sounds good kiss


    Re: 2022 BMW M5 CS

    Winter season has come to a close with a trip to Val Thorens, lovely skiing conditions, especially for end of March. A good reminder once more of what a fabulous all-rounder this car is. Yesterday we drove at night, through torrential rain all the way, and (with the right tires) it's just the most planted car you could wish for. Comfortable as well, and when you do eventually reach a fun bit of road, you can transform it to a hooligan of a car. Lovely.

    Lovely photos. The bottom one reminds me of the old neighborhood in Chicago.  It was once a great and beautiful city.  I shake my head in disgust what has happened over the last few years there.  All-wheel drive makes the difference, coupled with well executed aerodynamics, with a car’s stability during bouts of inclement weather. 


    Re: 2022 BMW M5 CS

    I was there a few months back and actually quite liked it, can’t compared to what it was like before obviously.

    North Michigan Avenue had stores and one of the highest rental rates in the world.  Today, it’s empty store fronts and rents less than a third of what they were twenty years ago.

    Hilarious to see that roof rack on the car. By the way, is it the same licence plate you had on the Ferrari?
