    But hey, on the plus side, it is going to be a pretty rare option combination to have. May even be worth something 20 or so years down the road...

    Well today my bro told me the new STS is slow as F%^&, comparing it to the new M5. I told him they are not competing cars but he just said they are similar in price. Are they? I know how much the STS costs , how much does the new M5 cost and what are its speeds and the STSs?

    BMW M5 E39: 0-60 4.9 seconds 394hp 369 ftlbs torque

    2k5 STS: 0-60 5.9 seconds 320hp 315 ftlbs torque


    You cant compare the NEW E60 V10 powered M5 at all so i didnt.

    Roughly 70k for the M5 , 66,905k topped out for the STS.

    Thats not a bad price at all for the M5.

    I think/thought the STS tops out at 60k.

    You really can't compare the STS to the M5. It competes with the 545. The STS-V will be an M5 competitor (that and a 7 series competitor due to it's in-between size).

    The CTS-V could also be considered an M5 competitor (they both are almost exactly the same size and share the same purpose despite the almost $20k difference in price) and it compares favorably against it.

    I've driven the new CTS-V and my Brother-in-law has a Brand new M3 Conv. for about the same money, i would definitely get the BMW! I was seriously considering the V until i drove the BMW. For now i will keep my99 STS..

    I used to have a 1977 BMW 320i for many years, which was great, but, BMW's styling these days is awful. The present 3 series is ok, but the rest of the range :rolleyes2 I don't care how much power the new M5 is packing I just can't get past those looks. For me it's the CTS-V.
