Your impressions (which I share for the most part) were one of the main reasons I went for a 550i M-Sport with Dinan S2 and some 20" HRE P40SCs. There is a Blue F10 M5 in our parking structure at...

Exactly, most (not all) who debadge have models with smaller engines than 550. You see this all the time in SoCal where a buyer gets a Mercedes S with an engine size below 550.

I would have purchased the Cadillac CTS V Coupe but it was too triangular and lacked any semblance of utility. The Sedan just does not have the lines--too boring.

1. M5 would smack-down the Panny GTS. Closer with the Turbo.

2. Panny is beauty-challenged--sorry Panny owners.

3. I would take a Masarati in this class.

M5 is a beast and much different than a 550i M-Sport (which I own).

However, if you think the M5 is a "track car" you are in for a surprise. It overheats and is too heavy. A M3 will likely be...

The dynojet chart is also displayed in "Standard Smoothing" (instead of "SAE Smoothing). Standard figures tend to be higher than SAE figures.
