Default BMW M5 F10

What a car! Outstanding. Always thought about an M car. Glad I chose this one. Sublime beast.

What are the newer ones like on fuel?

Did look into buying an E60 at one stage but the running costs were astronomical.

Lovely car BTW, get some more pics up.

Hi Norman Dog
The blurb, if you believe it, says that the F10 is 30% more efficient than its predecessor. So that's 30% of 3 parts of nothing lols. If on a long run you drive it like your Nan in her slippers, which you won't, then you may get 27 mpg. More realistically you'll get around the 20 mark.
This car was never destined to be a tree huggers choice and certainly not one for those that might fret about running costs. But...it is a stunning Q car. Capable of embarrassing some serious metal.
Comfortable cruiser to all out mental mode at the touch of a button.
I love it.
I'll post more pics at the weekend.
Thanks for your post.
Cool.

Thank you! It's a great motor. I can safely say that it's a car that makes every trip an event.

Yes I've been reading about a stage 1 that adds 90bhp for very little effort. Tempted
