Well, in that case, the M5 is perfect for you! And yes, the extra 167HP do make up for that. There are just some M3-owners complaining that they couldn't get that beast aroung curves as easy as the lighter M3 when driving on the racetrack due to the extra weight, but in everyday driving and with a little son in a baby-seat in the back, you won't take it to the racetrack that often, right?

So like I said: The M5 offers a bit of everything: Sport AND space!
