Am I the only one....

...Who prefers the ///M5 to the ///M6?

This weekend I spent a few hours tooling around in these two vehicles, and I must say that I am a bit more impressed w/ the ///M5. Some owners of both cars have stated that the ///M6 is the better vehicle, but fun factor wasn't there for me. Wait, allow me to rephrase that:

"The fun factor in the ///M6 was definitely there"

...but not to the same degree as the ///M5. And Oh My! The Borla exhaust on that ///M5 sounded so sick.

Ahh the thread is screwed anyway, may as well go for it. Is the M5 as exciting as the M6 which, in turn, is less exciting or more so than the RS4 which may well be more or less exciting than the C63AMG which is undoubtedly less exciting unless it is more so than the M3 which, unless anyone forgot, is a BMW which is a less exciting name, regardless of which car you like, than Ducatti who, in all fairness, dont even make cars but I like the name, it sounds good. If we all face it none of them are as exciting as a night with Halle Berry and Kylie Minogue with no rules and a family size tub of vaseline. Whilst I'm on the subject, what would be more exciting, Halle or Kylie? The answer? Angelina Jolie. Simple.

In answer to the Thread title, we can only hope so.

OK.

M5 vs. M6 vs. E90 M3 vs. E92 M3

Which do you choose, and why?

Judging by the look only:
M5 in the category Sedan, E92 M3 in the category Coupe.
Overall the E92 M3 looks best of all M cars IMHO.

Best regards, south

The weight ratio changes in the M5 and the M6 by a little bit, The M6 is slightly quicker on the track, but still heavy as fuck. I love driving the M6 compared to the 5, hence why I have one. They are close, but its a damn 6 series thats sexy, I cant resist.

The reason I love my M5 is because it does things a 2 ton vehicle should not be able to do and does them very well

Schneid, please stop talking about the M6, you dont own one! This was painfully obvious a few weeks back when you said your M6 had a P300 mode

I've always liked the M5 over the M6, so you're not alone.

never liked the e46 M3 for the reason they never offered a Sedan version, i like sport sedans, but the 335 is one good looking coupe, it has changed my outlook on sedan v coupe. So yeah, i would never turn down a M6 but i do kind of like the M5 styling better.

I agree.....if I buy an M3, it will be with 2 doors, if I buy the bigger M, it will be with 4 doors
