The anniversary edition of the M5 is rated by BMW at 600 crank Bhp. Of course there will only be 300 of them.

But BMW significantly underrates the actual power of the M5. Car mags have dynoed...

F10 m5 a united states failure ?

If the extra gas and insurance payments on the M5 vs a lesser BMW are a problem then it is almost certainly not an affordable car for a buyer. A 550i xDrive with an ECU flash will give you most (but...

To me the M Sport wheels and body kit make it a must. Have leased 3 5 Series v8 BMWs--E 39, E60 and F10. All had M Sport. I just like the look so much better.

I have little doubt that the M5 drives much better than a non-m 650 GC. But comparing a non M car to an M car's drive is like comparing apples to oranges. A more apples to apples comparison would...

MB does the same thing with the CLS vs the E class. There is a big price difference with CLS being much costlier. Guess you have to pay for the sleeker look of these 4 door sedans with the coupe...

Congratulations. To me the only E Class car worth buying is the E63. The E63, particularly the 577 Bhp S model, is a fantastic automobile but the lesser E series cars have floaty suspensions that I...

The Goodyear RFTs are a disgrace and useless on American roads. Ditch them ASAP and replace with conventional tires. Keep an air pump in the trunk for slow leaks. That is what I did. Because you...

Would your critique apply to the 2014 E63 S? 577 bhp and 590 lbs-ft of torque. Defeated M5 Comp Pack in review after review.

I had the Michelin Primacy RFTs on my car first. I thought the ride was horrendous (rock hard with no ride compliance) as compared to my Michelin Pilot Sport AS/3's which are conventional tires.

The reality is that as a commercial proposition the F10 is a smashing success -- outselling the E60 by 100,000 units per year.

But for handling enthusiasts (a sliver of the market) the F10 blows. ...
