So would you all choose:

1. new 2012 SRT300 black / black chrome

or

2. 08 M5 40k miles no warranty

Both these cars are about $45k.

Remember my criteria is to move to a larger, more luxurious sedan. I'm not comfortable driving the M3 as a DD anymore. Its great for a quick sprint, but driving around in dress clothes / suit / dress shoes / etc I just dont fit into the small cabin very well. Plus 99% of my driving is on straight roads, no twisty roads anywhere I live.
