Which would you rather: M5 or M6

Car and Driver pits the 2013 F10 M5 against the 2013 F13 M6 in a battle of the big M cars. Both S63tu powered with BMWs M DTC the power and potential of both cars should be evenly matched. The question is, which chassis and overall package would you rather have?

Mein Auto: Some Bavarian car outside
A combination of both, M6 Gran coupe.

I would drive away in the M5 if they were in front of me however.

Probably M5: Still have a bunch of kids at home, so need all the back seat space I can get, and the M6 GC costs too much.
