In straight line acceleration the M5 is a beast.

I test drove both and the M3 is way more fun to drive. The M5 feels big and a bit numb compared to the M3. It's not as fast in a straight line and doesn't sound as good, but i would take the M3 over the M5 any day.

Ya, i would have to agree, the m5 seems like more of a muscle car then it does a sports car when compared to an m3.

The m3 is a surgical scalpul and the m5 is well not exactly a sledgehammer, but a somewhat sporty hot rod.

The m5 sure does look nice in the driveway though.

congrats, but for me I would prefere the M5, with the E92

1. your giving up 2 doors, baby seats are a bitch to put in and out in a coupe, unless of course you have the E90 M3.
2. gving up room to the M5
3. giving up some ride compliance
