What? The new M5 is a ****ing joke. Everything you don't like about the V8 M3, is magnified in the new M5.
As someone said best it's "the best 7 series BMW has ever made". Hugely heavy, crappy handling, crappy steering. Everything a BMW shouldn't be. Yes, it's fast. That's it.
That car has been beat up in the media since its release. The enthusiast community considers it a bad, bad sign of things to come.
While the E90/92/93 M3 is overweight, too large, and has lost much of its edge, again, the exact same thing (even moreso) can be said for the new M5.
The new M5 is what has people worrying about the new M3. That they're going to **** up yet another car.
Ugg...that really grinds my gears. How could you even say that? The new M5 is a horrible, horrible excuse for the "ultimate driving machine". It's a ****ing barge.
