I loved M5 stability when test driving last time.
I never test drove the M5 so i can't compare how the car handles compared to it but all i know for about $260 it was well worth it for me. I just feel more in control of the car now and it is more predicable in the way I am use to a BMW should be.

Id say if my car was 100% stock with DDC in sport its a 3 in terms of handling. With the ACS springs it went to maybe a 5. Now i'd say its a solid 7 in MY scale from 1-10. Now idea where that falls in comparison to the M5 though. I notice the affects of the bar the most during highway maneuvers and it reminds me of how my old 335msport felt. Not quite the same but more in that direction instead of being a Lincoln.
