Truth. One of my 2 complaints about my car: transmission and suspension. But man, oh man that torque! It was a much needed change from my M3.

Oh, and aesthetically: love the front of the E, hate the rear. Vice versa for the 5: hate the front, like the rear.

Actually,

while the E does have the rear of a Sonata.

The new 5 has the rear of the Genesis.

So, both are basically Hyundai copycats. Whose the benchmark now? Hyundai!

LOL!
