John Milton had some pretty strong views on temptation. The famous poet and author of Paradise Lost wholeheartedly believed that one could not truly know one's goodness without facing genuine temptation on a regular basis. After all, how could you know whether you're straight-laced as a saint or crooked as the devil's own claws if you circumnavigated the world's vices? Fortunately for us, BMW has been so kind as to pull back the sheets on the company's 2012 M5 configurator. If ever there was a reason to fall into lust, this is it.

Right now, you can only pick from a handful of exterior colors and a pair of wheel options, but the German automaker says that more choices will arrive soon. For the moment, you can spend a few sacred moments meditating on whether your menacing sedan would look better in Monte Carlo metallic or Alpine White and what sort of peril you'd have to endure in order to secure the funds necessary to buy this beast for yourself. Don't worry, your secret's safe with us.

      what a boring color selection, 5-6 grays, silvers and blacks, and two blues. Why not anything from the warmer side of the palette? Rich reds or greens or golds might look great. How about white? That seems to be the performance color du jours for many makes.

        yeah it not an actual configurator. If you want those colors go buy a beetle.

        White is there. Below the boring ones. :) The two blues seem the best. And the black and white of course.
