on the Euro Delivery 100%. Once I do Spartanburg delivery of X5M I might consider that route too.

My as built price was 117K!

At that price I start looking at other luxury brands. Add a little more and a low mileage gently used Ferrari or Lamborghini looks more attractive.

Asking Prices -> 2006 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Scaglietti, $119,888 - 21,583 miles - Cars.com
2009 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 - $120,000 - 2651 miles - Cars.com

Well, the difference in our MSRPs is only the more expensive leather, and a few options, so 110K or 117K at that price range isn't a deal breaker.

Very true about the lightly used exotics. However, they only serve one purpose. M5 is a great sedan that is more than just speed and handling.

I was kind of surprised not to see the LED lights as even an option...
If the 6 series cars get it and so does the X5/6 cars, then why wouldn't M5 get it?

Buyers in the U.K. will soon be privy to a 30-car run of the BMW M5 M Performance Edition, a special model that is previewed by this brief video. The cars receive various aesthetic upgrades, although there are no performance modifications.

Of the 30 cars, ten will be painted in each of three new “Frozen” matte colors: red, white, and blue. (Frozen Red is actually a wrap, rather than actual paint.) The cars also score black 20-inch wheels, a full Black Merino Leather interior, BMW Individual Piano Black trim, a “BMW M Performance Edition ONE OF 30″ laser engraving, and M-Sport front seats.

A BMW USA representative told us there are currently no plans to bring such M Performance models here for the U.S.-market BMW M5. However, in the past special BMW M3 models with Frozen paint — the Frozen Silver and Frozen Black — have been sold on our shores in extremely limited quantities. Based on that precedent, it’s not impossible BMW will eventually offer up a matte-painted M5 like these examples in America.
