Smile New guy here just got my 2013 M5 and loving it

First I'd like to start by saying I got some really great info and being a Mercedes AMG guy I love my freaking M5 for weeks I read the reviews did the research and test drove a Porsche 911 Turbo, SL63 AMG, Ferrari F430 and a Maserati GT... By far I think in my own opinion I simply like the M5 with the HP it sold me on the spot , My girl has a 2009 M3 and her being a BMW person I had to come to the dark side, reading all the info from here made it easy . So I got it and gonna do some mods but not to crazy. We also got like 2400 from the dealer in credit towards the purchase

Hah, that is some wild cross-shopping! How in the world do you test drive 2 seat semi-exotics (c'mon Porsche, no one first back there) and come out with a 4 door executive performance sedan??!? That's hilarious and glad that you're enjoying the new ride. Congrats.

Surprised you were allowed a Ferrari test drive. Pretty nice.
The cars you tested are not even close. Fun to look around though.

Interesting that you passed on Porsche 911 Turbo, SL63 AMG, Ferrari F430 for a M5

Congrats on your purchase.

However, unless you are looking for a cruiser that can go fairly fast on a straight line and has 5 seats, I'm not sure how a M5 can beat any of those cars for sheer driving performance and speed...
