New BMW M5 or Audi's S6?

Video review and comparison of the BMW M5 with competition package and the Audi s6.
Which is the better car? The 2013 Audi S6, with a base of $73,400, or the 2014 BMW M5 starting at $92,800? There's no doubt the M5 has the power to get it done, but for the price does the S6 have what it takes to steal the show? This video compares everything from handling and speed to style and value.



See how the M5 stacked up against Audi's RS6 Avant here.

The problem with the m5 is you aren't even able to use all your gearing... I'm in 5th gear at 155

This is an apples and oranges comparison. M5 is on a whole nother level than the S6.

BMW LCI M5 all the way, Audi's just don't handle and that S6 is slow, ignore those Mag write-ups most of them do not even drive the cars just copy someone reviews.

For fuel efficiency for when people want to drive sane speeds and return 20 mpg.

I think you mean BMW 550xi vs Audi S6. That's the apples to apples comparison.
