Anyone know if they are planning on releasing a new M5 based on new tech and body designs of newer BMWs., ie 7 series? BMW tends to do this after a few years. I purchased the 328CI when they released the new style and less than a six months later they released the 330CI. I'm contemplating a M5, but don't want to get screwed again, perhaps time for a Mercedes?

Well, the 5 series is being redesigned right now, and I think it is slated for an '04 release. The M version will probably come out like a half year or a year later...oh and the good news is...that new M5 will have a V10!

Honda's don't come stock with turbos anyways.
What Honda's customers do with their cars is not Honda's responsibility.

There have been turbo BMWs in the past. 2002 Turbo and 3.0 Turbo Coupe.

There was a rumor for awhile that BMW was putting out a 3.0L I-6 twin turbo with 380bhp. I guess the idea was that the 5.5L V10 M5 was going up in price and the 3.0 TT would be priced at the old M5 price.

But that turbo thing seems to be dead.
