Thanks for all the replies so far and all your insight.

As the MYSTERIOUS strike at this MYSTERIOUS M-package contiuned... my dealer offered me a loaner for the time being. Well, it's nothing like I'd like - I ordered 520d, and now I got 530i instead... but well, I will not complain, although I have already several thoughts on this car:

1) it doesn't feel that fast as 258 hp would suggest - to me 520d with 163 hp just "feels" much quicker ( I know - it's a torque thing...)

2) it drinks like crazy.... 12, 15, even 16 L/100km.. and the 95 is already 1,15 EUR/L.... Ouch!

3) Car is super-sporty and handles unbelievably - never driven anything like that before...

4) NAVI Buss - is total waste of money

5) LOGIC 7 - doesn't play like 1000 EUR optional sound system (dissapointed!)

6) Runflats - much more comfortable as I predicted (after reading the forum)

7) Comfortable seats - BEST part of this car (I wish I ordered them..........

8) SUNROOF - WOW, I wish I'd thought about it earlier.... another must-have for my next car...

10) Electronic (advanced) AC - for me: waste of money, annoying operation and nothing like those electronic 2-sides AC in my E-38, or E-39, I'm glad I will stick with the standard AC...

11) Standard steering wheel is just horrible... It feels like I'm driving some Huyndai or something similar... Awful! So, only the sports-leather wheel makes any sense in E60 (my opinion)

12) QUALITY issues - Oh.. well... much worse than I would expect as a previous very-satisfied owner of 1997'E-39 and 1999'E-38.... Well, for what it's worth - I will write a separate thread here about quality issues on this E60 loaner, but for now: ENJOY few pictures!!

Ah, SORRY about the weather - but it always rains in Luxembourg....
