    Anyway I don't remember the OP stating why he did or didn't want a V. I wouldn't buy an M5 over a V2 either but maybe he has reasons. Not a fan of the V1 so I would buy any M5 over that. F10 M5 vs. V2? Well the F10 has a beautiful interior so I'd probably buy that.

    My BMW hasn't been any less reliable than my old STS so I'm not going to start with the comparison there. Any luxury car is going to cost money to keep on the road.

    Just get the M5, beat on it for a year, and let it go to someone else once its out of your system. You're a serial trader like the rest of us so get a warranty and have fun.

    At least around here, most BMW drivers have really bad road manners-especially the M series (and moreso the wannabe M series) owners. FWD pontiac owners are far worse drivers than BMW drivers though.

    Nothing beats WRX/EVO owners, followed by late model GTO owners.

    Re: car experts, talk me out of a BMW M5

    ^^^ Not around here, I have even seen WRX/EVO drivers (I doubt that they own those cars, but are in debt up to their eye balls!) stop for little old ladies in crosswalks. I can't say the same for BMW drivers, but I guess it is forgivable when BMW drivers are rude and inconsiderate ..... after all we know that they have big things on their minds!

    Now pickup truck drivers (of all ages) there is trouble on four wheels!

    I think all drivers of all cars suck.

    4.6/ 5.slow mustang owners are up there... As are 3rd gen f body owners....*******s are always trying to race their slow ass cars because they think they're fast. Once some guy in an iroc tried to race the equinox (why I have no idea....I guess he thought a mini SUV would be an easy target for his "hot rod")....he got stomped really bad....guess loud mufflers don't make your pokey 5.0 go any faster.

    I wish I had something to add Rolex, but I have absolutely no experience with Bimmers. Good luck.

    Re: car experts, talk me out of a BMW M5

    Get an E60 M5 with the 5.0 V10. Revs past 8000rpm and has an absolutely maniacal sound/feel to it. With the right exhaust you can pretend you're going down the main straightaway at Monaco.




    I'm not a huge fan of the E60 5 series(don't care for the styling or overly complex electronics on it), but I seriously would fork over cash for an M5(or M6 coupe), just for that hellacious engine under the hood. Its also kind of a reminder of when BMW would actually build a zany car. All their products now(new M5 included) are too polished, isolated, and the new 5 series doesen't handle worth a damn(M5 included). I mean the new M5 has the speakers play synthetic notes of the engine to the occupants according to the revs, now how freaking lame is that . . .

    Considering they used the 7 Series platform which is from the Rolls Royce Ghost... yeah there wasn't a way they could defy gravity with the amount of weight it carries around. But they are beautiful cars though.
