I currently drive an 07' M5 and I was looking back at the white M5 thinking to myself, I like it better than the e92. Again, I am a huge M3 fan and have owned four. I was very disappointed and thought to myself it is rip off at $70K. I would rather try to pick up the Nissan GT-R. That thing was crazy and will have a cheaper sticker (with a $20K premium I'm sure, but none the less) 0-60 in 3.5 sec in out of control.**
I hear you.
Donít get me wrong, I would opt for the M5 over the M3 too if I had the financial means to. And I can understand that you werenít too crazy about the new M, but like most things, I am sure it will grow on you. I guess since I have been waiting fro this car for about 4 years, and have been lucky enough to see many camouflaged test cars on the street, I was just so delighted to see the final product right there and in the flesh. Also that sound track in the back ground was just pure sex! Many that thing really got me going
