Drive.com.au estimates $240k

Spot on. $240,010 or about $250K on the road in SA.

Active seats are an option at $1,800. There are a few other options like night vision, lane change warning, soft close doors, rear seat entertainment, rear seat heaters etc.

Will be a great car but for $240k I don't think they'll e walking out the door, too many other options at that price besides a large M3.

Pricing is pretty good. Not much more than the E60 V10 I bought in 2005. But yeah, less euphoria about this one. It'll probably be a much better car, mind you.

I guess if an M3 is $180k approx an M5 at $240k seems in line but if you step back, these numbers are a bit crazy, you don't notice so much with the M3 but $240K for an M5 ??? at some point you say WTF ! :eek:

Having said that the new M5 will be awesome, in the language of this forum :)

Considering they were selling the 550i at $210k on road I was expecting the M5 to be more than $250k. Good to know...  :scratchchin:
