I took delivery of my MS two weeks ago today (P85) and have put about 900 miles on it. Today I dropped her off to get a saran-wrap paint protection applied and drove away in my M5, which I had not driven once in the past two weeks.
It was a sad day for me. I love my M5, and until now had never driven anything that came close. But, alas, all day today driving was like watching a beloved athlete stay one season too long, or the Champion defend the title once too many times. I was honestly appalled at how sluggish the car felt, how unresponsive, how OLD.
And yet, in reality it is the same fire-breathing, naturally aspirated V10 monster it was last month. The car hasn’t changed.
But the world has.
