Anyone considering F10 M5?

As much as I absolutely love my E93 M3 and as much as I hate to say this - after reading the BMW official press release of the new F10 M5 (including details of the S63tu engine [here]) - I am seriously considering it - I know it would be noticeably faster - but I\'m somewhat fearful I would really miss my M3.

Anyone else seriously considering it (or the F3x M3)?

When my M3 lease is up in 2013, F10 M5 will be on a shortlist.

I've always favored the M3's. Sure, I'm curious about the nxt gen M3, no interest in the M5 tho.

Funny to find this thread. I just had a "spirited drive" with an M5 earlier today. That thing was impressive in straight line acceleration 3rd thru 4th gears. we did this twice and I got next to him and gave him the bow. Then he couldn't pass me in a 2 lane, half a mile long sweeping exit that merges with another hwy and by the end he gave me the bow!!!
Anyway, I was on my way to the dealer to fix my rear signal light (I was really hoping the M5 is going to that dealer too but he wasn't) so when I got there and as I was waiting I was looking for any M5, but the dealer had none. I spent my waiting time reading the M5 brochure and thinking, if the 2012 is faster and looks better hmmmmm

I was actually on the list for the car, but when I saw the official specs I decided to pass for now and order the M3. The weight is what killed it for me. I like to take any of my cars, other than my DD to the track and when I saw a 4,200 pound dry weight I just couldn't get over it. My DD is a 2011 550Xi, so I can already go fast in a straight line. I would never think that the 550 and M5 are that comparible, but I will say that my 550 handles like a pig. My E60 535Xi M-sport was so much better in the handling department. I'm sure I will end up buying the new M5 after I drive it, but for now I just felt better about the M3. Anyway, still waiting for my M3 to get here............

Depends on what is important to you? I have both and love them both for different reasons. The M5 is pure brut power and you can feel it, and I know the new model will be even quicker. The M3 is quick and nimble, but I do feel wanting of more when I compare it to the M5. If you are a track guy/gal, then no comparison, the M3 is the winner. I am certainly going to check out the new M5 when it comes out, but will most probably wait to see about the M6 vert!

There is a thread on how the M5 performed at the Nurburgring. It seems to have held it's own very well.. Despite it's weight.

Yeah, I saw that on the M5 board. Like I said, I'm sure I'll end up getting one some day, but for now the M3 seems to fit the bill a little better. Thanks very much for the link though. Really appreciate it.

Rode around the track in an M5. It's very impressive. I'll reserve my opinion when I feel my time is up on this M3. Whatever I decide on it'll have to be another convertible hardtop.

have to agree with this and also would love the M5 in addition to the M3. Talk about a dynamic duo. I can only hope.

The 5 series is a very very nice car, so I'm sure the M5 will be great but I enjoy smaller more nimble cars and the M3 already feels a little too much like a boat to me.

The great apeal of the M5 is it's engine, which will easily be tunable to 700+ horsepower. The M5 is also very attractive in every aspect to me but the size is both the main flaw and the deal breaker for me as a contender for my next daily driver in a few years.
