This has definitely never been discussed.
This will be a daily driver.your buying a sports car in the winter, idk. maybe you should decided weather this will be a daily driver vs a weekend joy ride, and make your decision from there.
even if it is so, I would never get the first year model, too risky, lots of bugs. I'd rather wait. Also, I will be leasing anyway so it does not really matter.There is a NEW E-Class Model coming out in less than a year! They are offering you a good deal because the E63 as a whole as been a flop and with the new body you will take a HUGE LOSS. M5 all the way. And just so you know, I am an AMG Fan!
Is it really that hard to drive M5-SMG? I drive stick, so stick is not a problem for me. However, as a daily driver it could become somewhat annoying.I would say, for a daily driver....buy the MB, why not anybody can drive one of those, from a Geek to a Brain to anybody that has never driven a car before...:confused3
To own a BMW, especially an M5 it takes a person who really appreciates a fine car and a car that needs an experienced driver to tame it...So if you or anyone you know fits this criteria then I would have to say,M5.:dunno:
I was looking at the CLS63 before I bought my M6.Not sure of this topic was already discussed, but I am going to be leasing a new car in the next 1 month and have hard time deciding: MB63 AMG vs M5 (SMG).
I've already visited BMW and MB dealers and got the pricing. MB is offering a good deal, and both M5 and E63 are in the same price range 1300-1400 per month 15K/year, 24-27months.
I really like both cars, but wanted to get your opinion realizing this is a BMW forum.
I test drove M5 and love it, my dad has 2008 M5 stick.
What are some of the pros and cons for each car? Which one is faster, which handles better and more fun to drive?
How do both rate in reliability and build quality?
Thanks you all in advance.
Thanks. What about the quality of the audio system of E63 and M5. I know both have iPod interface and I beleive both are Harmon Kardon. However is there any significant differences in audio quality and sound.I was looking at the CLS63 before I bought my M6.
E63 is faster then M5 but M5 handles better and def. more fun to drive.
I would say get the MB if you are looking for fast and comfortable ride.
BMW is more exciting, free maintenance, better quality interior, sounds better and I think M5 looks better than E63.
M5!!! or M6!!!
my car I with enhanced premium audio and it soudns amazing.Thanks. What about the quality of the audio system of E63 and M5. I know both have iPod interface and I beleive both are Harmon Kardon. However is there any significant differences in audio quality and sound.
Thats what i do. Enjoy it and take to 8250 rpm when i feel like it :1:no, i didn't mean it would be hard to drive the m5 as a daily driver, just for ME i don't have as much fun driving it daily because i can't enjoy it as i think i should enjoy it at 8,000 rpm...thats all...the M5 is such a nice "DRIVER" meaning to be drivin like it was designed......
