I think the new M5 betrays its purpose - understated power.
Its too flashy... also with Chris bangles design approval... its not even flashy in a good way...

Personally. I think the core of a true bmw ends with the e46

I though the new M5 sucked too, but ever since I saw them it grew on me. The E39 M5 looked good, but the current on is starting to look pretty good.

Last week I saw one and gave that guy a thumbs up. I asked him to turn off all stability assistance DSC etc and show me what it can do (we were at a freeway booth), a cool guy, chatted for a while......and it could smoke the tires on the 1-2 shift....

Eventually caught with the guy and gave him a big thumbs up.......I tried catching up with him in my S500 and it was not even close....

The M5 has my respect!

50% of you are in love with the new design and 50% of you are not.


Dead even.


I can only stand it in black and even then when I see the trunk side profile, my jaw literally drops with "what were they thinking"....


To each his own...I'm actually really pissed because if it wasn't for the looks I would scoop an M5 up in a second...
