    My German's a bit rusty, but numbers don't lie: RS7 vs. E63AMG S vs. M5 Comp. Pkg.

    I don't understand it either but will say the RS7 looks like a natural for the next James Bond movie.

    I hope the boys over at BIMMERPOST or any other BMW forum don't see this article. You're going to hear some "blood-curdling" screams and see a lot of "slit wrists".

    I own an F10 M5 and I haven't lost any sleep over this article since after I first saw it last week. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I don't know German so I can't really question or dispute anything in the article

    Anyway, I chose my M5 for its looks, luxury amentities and features, DCT and because it has RWD. I was coming out of a FBO GT-R (tuned for E85) so I was looking for something completely different. However, if Audi had offered an RS6 sedan to the US market I probably would have shuttered the RWD thinking and gone with it. But alas, no RS6 for the US (or RS6 sedan period), so I went with the M5. You really can't go wrong with any of the cars in the segment. They each have their strong suits. I just hate hearing (reading) people trashing a car because it is not produced by their preferred brand.

    Nor should you - the M5 is an amazing car!

    Agreed. Fanboism taken to extremes is extremely annoying. But without it, automotive fora would be a lot less lively!

    +1... It's always an insecurity thing.

    Someone in my neighborhood has a Frozen Silver (F10) M5, and it looks very nice. I just haven't had the inclination to go with a RWD car since owning a 1998 M3/4. Everything since has been AWD...
