Hmmm, I have doubts about that, but you are right to some degree. We are going to call the doctor who's car it is. But how it normally happens...is the transport driver drives the new cars to our service drive. I check them in. Inspecting them all over for damage....and if everything is ok. Then I get the books/information out of them and then get an RO from the manager and then I move them to the "work line". From there, the techs drive the car inside the service shop...and finish the inspection. From there, it goes to sales...or wherever. So I don't see the point in letting the customer drive the car inside or wherever to be inspected.

oh well, I just want to see the new M5. If I get to drive it...that would just be a bonus.

I fially got to drive one on wed, it was due for its 1200 mile oil service. On all M5's theres already a recall out for the oil lines which lead to the vannos. They tend to blow appart spraying oil everywhere. But parts didnt have it so we didnt do it. But after we were done its a requirement to drive it, all I can say is that you get chills and feel oddly nervous after driving one. They are increadibly fast and the handeling is so unbelivable its almost near impossible to get DSC to come on. And they sound so nice at 8grand, 2nd gear pulls so hard your amazed that the tires hold. You can only floor it upto 3rd gear because by then your already doing 90+mph. Im not sure if anyone one is aware of this option yet but the seats, like the heated seats it has 3 stages, the side bolsters are controled by a motor, so when you turn left the right side bolster huggs you so you dont move as much. Its the same for the passanger seat as well.
