Anyone having E60 M5 and 997 Turbo at the stable at the same time?
These two cars are different from eachother, I just want to know how the M5 is.

I own a 997 Turbo and thinking of:
either selling 997 Turbo and getting E60 M5
or keep 997 Turbo and add E60 M5

Will I miss 997 Turbo is the question. Any E60 and 997 Turbo owners here?

You might miss the brute force of the 997 Turbo. Do you have PDK in yours? My buddy has a 997.2 Turbo S w/ PDK and that thing literally hurts my neck on standing starts the launch control is on another level.

My ideal garage setup would be a 997 GT3 with the M5.

I don't own a 997 TT but a buddy of mine did for a long time and I got to drive it quite a lot. From my view, they are 2 different animals. It's like saying I own a Dog and Cat...hmm...which do I keep?

I'd say, keep them both. Can't go wrong with that. Or sell them both and get a R8 V10, can't go wrong with the latest gen either.

Yep John had both for awhile but sold his M5 shortly after.

Here is a pic of his.



I only have the 996TT and an M5 so can't help 100% with your question.

I would love to have both and would keep the M5. I will be looking for a 997.2 TTS in a year or so.

I'm kinda digging the silvertone/black paint combo. Paul, Is that yours?
Yep that black sliver combo is mine :M5thumbs:Its a matte wrap to make the car give a more agressive looks as people just think it's a normal 5 series LOL!!

Black M5 is Tonys, and of course the 997.2 is Johns new baby.

I am planning on wrapping my 996 matte black but just the hood, roof and rear spolier. Should have pics next week.
