Now, now ... let's be consistent since you both rely on reviews, not have double standards ... if one seeks to rely on reviews, the reviews generally say that the F10 M5 is better than the E60 M5.


Insideline: Slightly Less Exotic, yet Still a Better Sport Sedan

Road and Track:Still the king of all sports sedans, the new M5 improves in every way.

Motortrend: A Bigger Bang: Latest Sedan Takes A Big Step Forward

Autocar: Objectively it's the best M5 we've ever seen; bigger, faster, more efficient, vastly easier to live with and still an exercise in handling brilliance.

all of the above statements i made are true and i stand by them 100%. where is the double standard?

i stated when posting this thread (note the quotes in teh "trash" part) that i can NOT recall an M car being knocked for lack of enthusiasm and vim and vinegar. track times, looks, etc are all awesome. and maybe one day i will own an f10 m5. but again, FIRST time i have seen an M car being knocked for "blah".

i stand by the SMG tranny in the old M5 being a disaster. i drove it hard at the performance school and it was not in the M3s league, even if it was faster

My 550 will torch an m3 off the line, but will never match it for sheer driving excitment and overall driving/steering feel. no shot.

where is taht a double standard?

by the way, this is border line stalking

and as you can see from one of the above quotes of mine, if i wanted to buy the m3, i would have.

and i did. and it's the best car i have ever driven. the d2 f10 is my wife's car now, and i still love it. but there is only one M3
