M5 vs 550i, no comparison. M5 is a lot faster:
Car and driver:
M5 got 0-60 in 4.2 seconds
BMW M5 did 0-100 in 9.4 seconds, and 1/4 mile in 12.5 seconds@118 MPH
for 550i vs 335i Watch this.
When I drove them the 550i felt faster, but the 335i was with winter tyres so hard to tell, about equal I would say. Also test results are very similar. European mags show almost exactly same times.
Car and driver
The 550i does not suffer from a power shortage. With a 0-to-60 time of 5.2 seconds and a quarter-mile run of 13.7 at 104 mph
Paired with the standard six-speed transmission, this is sufficient to propel the 3616-pound 335i to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, with essentially no turbo lag—the tiny hesitation between the time the driver punches the throttle and the onset of full boost. That’s a tenth quicker to 60 mph than was the slightly lighter 335i coupe, an advantage the sedan held through the quarter-mile (13.5 seconds at 106 mph).
Not to spoil anything the video above is M6 convertible vs E63, so it doesnt tell much about M5 vs E63. Here are more videos on the subject.
