saw this today, talked to someone that knows the owner, the owner is a gun enthusiast, the back was custom designed so he can put his guns there while he drives out to the boonies to shoot

A co-worker just got his Launch Edition M5, 1 of 400 produced, 1 of 50 for the US. He did a European Delivery early last month. I'm not a fan of the color but everything else is amazing.

But looks like a very nice car overall.

What are those red mini paddles on the steering wheel? One says M1 the other M2.

Pre-set M-modes, IIRC. Turns it up to 11 & 12?

Edit: From https://www.netcarshow.com/bmw/2018-m5_first_edition/

As on the outgoing model, the M sports steering wheel includes two individually configurable M Drive buttons (M1, M2) that allow the driver to retrieve a previously stored set-up. The buttons have been completely redesigned and are prominently located. This ensures they are even easier to reach and, in customary M style, offer excellent speed of use. As well as the M xDrive mode and the Drivelogic shift program, the engine and damper mapping, Servotronic steering characteristics and readouts in the Head-Up Display can also be memorised. The desired settings can be stored via the iDrive menu. An icon in the instrument cluster indicates to the driver when a stored M1/M2 set-up is activated.

What an amazing car, but I am not a fan of the light interior and matte red exterior.

I'd imagine that impacts resale value as well...

I like the red, just not the matte finish. Would look lovely in a high gloss.

and gun metal grey rims. I feel the black is too drastic of a contrast to the red.

I might be a little biased, but if they had gone this route...

100% agreed. The rims could be even darker, but black is just too much.

The Launch Edition was only available in one configuration. Lighter wheels would look much better for sure.
