    If they have updated the 5 to a similar spec to the 7 then.

    CD player if it has the 6 pack player then I can say the one in the 7 will
    accept mp3 files and read out the data of track title and artist.

    Work on about 20 - 25 mpg.

    Sat nave is different. The sat nav is usually the professional version and the
    DVD slides in a slot in the lower dash. There is a CD slot in the upper dash as
    well as or instead of the 6 pack unit depends on the options ordered.

    I believe the bluetooth is standard but the phone holder is an extra.

    Go to the BMW web site for more info on options - they are all listed there.

    BTW pick your phone carefully as it appears that only the NOKIA range is 100%
    compatible.

    The EPA says 11/17 U.S. mpg for the current M5 which equals about 13.2 to
    20.5 Imperial gallons.

    Which is why I was looking for M5 owners to comment and not just
    people guessing!!!

    My M3 said in the book it would do 27mpg, it averaged 24 which was
    quite good.

    Dizzy - what is NORMAL?

    My normal here in the South of England is totally different to Central London,
    New York, Los Angeles or Edinburgh.

    I quoted the EPA figures as the newer ones seem to be pretty realistic. For
    the M3, the current V8 spec is US 20 mpg (24 Imp.) highway and the Z4M using
    the older 3.2l
    I6 is US 22 or 26.4 Imp. highway.

    So perhaps armed with this info, you might get a sense - absent any posts
    from V10 M5 owners.

    What's your point? There's no freaking way *anyone* is getting that
    kind of milage out of an M5. Maybe if you were to rent an oval
    racetrack and cruise around it at 50MPH...
