The m5 is awesome but a v10 in a rising gas price trend with a long commute, it doesnt make sense plus it is now an outdated model, thus I am all over the place. However m5 is legendary and could be called the best 4dr in the wolrd, albeit Panamara will now give it a run Maybe a Honda Accord is the solution. :d
FWIW, few M5 owners in other forums felt 550 sport pckg was as good and more practical than the M5 and the extra $$ spend on maintenance and costs of the M5 didn't justify the sound and seasonal enjoyment.

Having said that i take it you realize the price difference between an 06/07/08 M5 and f10 550 where the M5 is in some cases half the price of f10.

Good luck.
