These M5 Tourings Are Amazing !

After a good few months of ownership , I feel compelled to say that I had always previously underestimated the qualities of these M5 Tourings !

I still feel it a touch surreal , driving an Estate car in such an enthusiast manner , but am amazed at how well they perform .

Having visited the Nurburgring several years ago with board member Evoman and his M5 Touring , I had real life experience of seeing one being driven extremely well in my rear view mirror and , subsequently , through my windscreen , but I had never appreciated how accomplished they are .

This , combined with the fact that they are truly practical , has totally altered my perception of these fantastic cars !

Long live the E34 M5 Touring !

So you ended up getting those staggered Thorwing Stars then - a productive afternoon after all.

Glad you are enjoying the Touring D - they are a unique combination of space, pace and class!!

You didn't mention the smug smile you get when some pill decides to try to keep you from passing only to have you downshift and go past him like he's tied to a post. Out of the corner of your eye you can usually catch the shocked face that is whipped to the left when the scream of the 6 goes past. As you fade into the distance he can make out the five people seated and bicycles, luggage etc piled in the back of the touring.

Now how many wheels are actually in the car ? I spot 6!
Have you noticed a difference in chassis flex? How about performance difference?
I've driven both and didn't feel much difference however I've never tracked either.
