But i was referring more to this; says a lot when the m5 loses to an s6 AND an AMG.

and the fact that I dont care for the new M5. Didnt like the steering feel and other than being fast in a straight its a very uninspiring vehicle.
Not a Panamera fan looks awful, looks like a porsche station wagon.

Yes in that Car and Driver article it loses but then it wins in this one. The 2013 Lightning Lap and if you read the article in the mag which I have all they talk about is how bad the S6 drives and how good the M5 is. Thats why I dont trust magazines but I have driven the M5 on the track and can say its not M3 steering but its damn good.
