BMW has my permission to BOOST the M5

Seriously, theere as been an uproar about the next-gen M5 using the X5/6M engines. Its lower revving, FI, etc. Our friends in Munich must've seroiusly gotten the memo. The M5 dosent have to be the fastest but it cant simply have its doors blown off. Do we agree on that? So, here is my endorsement.<- not that it matters.. Crank the boost!!

Here is the reason why:

2010 CTS-V
$60,000

0-60mph 3.9seconds

0-100mph 8.7seconds

1/4mi 12.2@119mph

5-60mph 4.1seconds
C/D observed mpg 14mpg

It is unbelievably hard to hate this car.

What do want the new M5 to have??
