Difference between the '00 > M5's

For those of you who might care, here is a break down of the M5 changes on the e39....

2000:
1) older style M-steering wheel
2) smaller NAV screen
3) NO LEDs and Angel eyes in front
4) No M-audio as option
5) PDC option for rear only
6) True extended leather in car on dashboard and door panel
7) subtle design difference in the piston rings requiring a heavier and more expensive oil, 10W60
8) Exterior color Avus, interior oxford green available
9) Some have said the rims are a bit darker than 2001 and 2002


2001:
1) Newer M steering wheel (much thicker)
2) wide 16:9 Nav screen
3) PDC as option in front and rear
4) introduction of Lemans BLue as color
5) engine requires less expensive 5W30 oil
6) M-audio as option(It's their premium sound option with a few more speakers and 2 small subs. )
7) Leds in rear and Angel eyes in front

2002:
Everything in 2001 with these additions
1) Automatic running headlights
2) rear air bags no longer activated standard, but a No cost option
3) discontinued silverstone and Royal Red colors, added Blue water and Chiaretto red.

I disagree.... I absolutely adore the new 5er styling! I have seen it in person, and its even more gorgeous, but then again, im pretty sure that V10 would make up for any appearence misperfections.....
