    Will M5 ever come out as Steptronic or lower HP?

    DAmn, 500 horse power seems a bit excessive in city area.....

    At start-up it defaults to 400 hp....You have to..

    push a button to get 500 hp. You'll never see steptronic but there will be a full manual-shift-it-yourself 6-speed coming out next year. It will probably be a no-cost option.

    Doubt it. But, drove the new M5 last week and ....

    really liked the new SMG, which was surprising after using the M3 SMG. I really prefer a stick, but the SMGIII on this M5 is very nice. Just takes getting used to. I will most likely get an M5 in the next couple of months as opposed to waiting for an 07 with manual 6.
