Below is the topgear review of the new E60 M5. I think they read / listened to our earlier threads / conversations


'The M5 is a masterpiece. Of engineering, of integration, of power. But there's still a nagging doubt in my mind that it has sacrificed its soul for such domination. There's no charm, no warming glow. There's no furtive grin when you realise that you have an engine that is slightly too powerful for your chassis, no element of delight when your suspension setup exceeds the output of your engine. The bar has simply been raised for all performance cars. It's a geeky response to criticism, this complete elimination of imperfection. It's the tick-the-box approach to making a car empirically better, rather than making it feel right. And that, ultimately, takes all the joy out of what is currently the best performance saloon in the world.
