Just a few weeks back we brought you a link to the 2013 BMW M5 order guide
, which gave you the ability to spec out and price a new M5 sedan built to your own standards. Now we’ve got even better news: you can put down your notepads and number two pencils, and build your own M5 online, using BMW's M5 configurator
The U.S. base price of the 2013 M5 starts at $90,795, including a destination charge of $895. Since the M5 already comes well equipped, even checking off both major option packages will only add $7,400 to the sticker, but be forewarned: if you want custom touches from BMW’s Individual groups (paint, interior trim or leather upholstery), the price climbs quickly.
Go heavy on the personalization options, and the 2013 BMW M5 can easily crack the $115,000 barrier. We’ve got simple tastes, so our “as configured” price, including the M5 in standard paint and trim, with the six-speed manual, floor mats and smartphone integration, worked out to just over $91,000. Your mileage, as they say, may vary.
