The M5 is not too difficult to drive at all, at least I don't think so, though there are few places where you can use much of the performance advantage in this country. I prefer the look of the M5 when going for the 8-cylinder BMW models as the 550i doesn't offer too much when compared to a 528i. Good choice!

I agree, even though the 550i's supposedly have the M body kit the M itself still looks hotter than the regular 5, especially in my color (Interlagos Blue Pearl)

Congrats, the M5 is a hell of a machine. Only drove a newer one briefly (one of the company owners cars), but it's a heck of a ride.

Congrats! Not to be too much of a debbie downer, but test drive it before you sign on the dotted line. The SMG is a really love-it-or-hate-it tranny

I hate to add but my former boss had an M5 and after a couple months he realized he HATED the SMG and couldn't wait until his lease was up
