Even absent the problems I would think that the residual value is higher than the car's market value.

Yes I do think the F10 M5 is better looking. But the M157 motor is superior IMHO

N63 engine recall

Perhaps. But problems started very early on before any wear and tear.

Moreover, owner after owner who does not have Dinan mods is describing the same problem. Let's face facts: the engine is a...

Fascinating discussion but one thing about the deal makes no sense: paying sales tax upfront. It is always smarter to roll that into the lease payment. If you pay it upfront and your car is lost,...

+2

Very good looking car but not for me. I too would get a 911 in that price range. A lightly used 997 Turbo S to be specific in that price range.

To me the M6 GC is the best looking BMW out there. But it has very limited rear seat room. More of a 2 + 2. M5 is tons more practical.

Less weight and all wheel drive as an option are likely to be in the next M5.

I know a dealer in Bergen County that will offer that deal easily. They offered it to me. I went with the E63 S but it was a tough decision.

Congrats! We'll have to get together and see how it runs against my incoming 2015 E63 S. Use it well.

Well Stig it looks like your concern about the M3 lacking traction under WOT is shared by Road and Track.

Thoughts on current/future Ms discussion

You have ably explained why this lifelong 5 Series V8 owner (E39, E60 and F10) chose the E63 S over the F10 M5 for my next car. If M5 had AWD I likely would have chosen it.

I did. My last car was 2009 E60 550i and my current car is a 2012 550xi. The F10 550 is dramatically faster than the E60 550. It is not even close. The new one is in an entirely different class...

I see the two biggest changes in the next gen M5 as less weight and AWD as an option or standard. I do not think we will see a dramatic increase in power from the F10 M5.
