Weapon M5 TT

We had a new M5 V8 TT in today for an exhaust i know its not a 1 series but it has had the shop talking all day.
What a car my god i would need to win loto to even think about ownership. That engine and all the alloy suspension components WOW, even the stock exhaust is a duel 3" system. Just fantastic. That engine i want one,
I wonder if it will fit the 1 series

I will post up some pictures soon if your interested.

I signed up to the M5TT Magazine series where I get a piece of the S63 every month. Should have a completed engine by 2037.

and by the time you purchased all the magazines to get all of the parts, you probably could have purchased an old M5!!!!!

Older model M5's (2005-2006 E60's) with the V10 are going for under $70,000. Some of them have about 100,000kms but others have only ~60,000kms. That doesn't seem too bad.

I reckon the E60 M5's shall retain their value pretty well when you have such a magnificent F1 inspired donk:

What's the deal with the reverse-flow cylinder heads on the S63 V8 engine? Are there any heat issues having the turbos crammed into such a small space?

The turbos are oil cooled - which is one difference to the S63tu, running lower boost but higher compression ratio than the S63 in the X5M and X6M.
