Wonder what the "value for money" equation would yield if comparing the E39 M5, E60 M5/E63 M6, E39 S2, E39 S3 and a car like BlackM5's s/c'ed E39 M5. One would be comparing the money spent to the overall roadability (if that is a word) and sophistication of each one. So for example the raw quickness of a s/c'ed E39 might be faster than a E60 M5, but the driveability of the E60 and perhaps even top speed might yield a higher value for the money spent.
Gustav, any possibility of you being able at some time to get a ride in an S3 and perhaps a DA s/c'ed M5 to add input to this type of comparision?
Sure, that could be possible, but we have some geographoical problems (I am in Sweden). However I am planning on going to USA nest summer or spring to visit Dinan when he is done with his forst M5 E60 conversion.
