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?
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.
