I'll agree with you and leave it here. I understand your points and I guess I was wrong to say that "more" torsional rigidity equals "more" safety.

I completely agree. I feel that the E39 M5 is the perfect size sedan. It's crazy how my E90 M3 is almost as big in every aspect. Personally, I'd love to be able to buy a new M3 from the dealership that is the size and weight of the E46 with the S65 V8.
