As most of the worlds favoured journalists got flown to Munich a couple of weeks ago to experience the new M5 in the flesh, so to speak, the details are starting to filter through.

There is a depressable "M" button on the wheel or the dash.

The idea is that you set the car up in terms of suspension and throttle response how you like it..... or in my mind; ATTACK MODE. You do this via the onboard computer and preset it to the M button. You can then change the settings back to comfy chilled out luxury motor mode and carry on.

When you are driving along in comfy mode and someone tries to race you a bit, hit the M button to instantly engage your preset mode (attack!!!!) and kick some arse!

I know it's nothing too special but I'll post every bit of news I hear about the car for you.

Ooooh, I've seen pictures of a production ready M5 too..... it was in a wierd colour. It might have been silver and reflecting another colour but it looked 'ice blue' and f**king sexy. (When I say 'ice' blue, I mean iced silver. Cant really describe it, sorry.)

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>
