I think there are a few meh M5 reviews out there (one that I can think of is the car and driver review). I believe it all comes down to what people have come to expect from M cars and what they now will get in the future with emissions / govt regulations playing a major factor + weight increases. Competition has also improved over the past few years.
I personally do not understand why BMW changed the "M" formula considering the small percentage of cars that are sold based on overall sales. However, I am going to buy a F12 M6 in the next 2 years regardless of changes to the M brand. I do plan on keeping the E60 M5 because of the V10 alone.
