I'd go with M5, especially if manual.
The M5 didnt come out with a manual tell 2007. Sure a manual is more fun most of the time, but in the M5 it is slower. The thing is that BMW designed the ECU to not fully turn off the traction control with the stick. They said it had too much power to be safe without some type if traction control. Plus the SMG is a 7 speed. All of the car mags tested the M5 man and auto and concluded that the 7speed is faster throughout accl tests.
I know it sucks, but I would like the 7speed anywase. If I wanted a complete drivers car, Id just buy a m3 and a daily driver.
As for what car to get? Id go with the brand spanking new one!! Nothing like a new car!!
