Well said, malteseloever.

More power and torque
Better gadgets (HUD, album art, mobile office)
$13,000 less when comparably equipped
Better ride (air suspension)
Lower ride height with lift mechanism standard
Better exhaust sound (sport exhaust standard)
Better steering feel
More special-looking interior ( leather with alcantara, embroidered head rest, black button with chrome trim)
More useable trunk space
Better launch and wet weather performance (all wheel drive)
Much better rear leg room
Better body control (with optional PDCC)
I actually love gadgets, hence my enthusiasm for the M5. The power is also very fun when I am able to use it.
Both are great cars but the Porsche is built as a true sports sedan.
I've read several reviews comparing the M5 against Audi, MB, Porsche and it hasn't taken any first places like in the past. The thing that is against the new M5/M6 is the weight and steering....unless you are Porsche (miracles happens)
