Assuming E60 M5 (or any M5 for this matter) is not available, which car would you purchase instead? Hopefully your choice of car is comparable to M5. Thank you. :flag:

B5 for sure - personally feel streets ahead of an E55 (and I have driven both)

The obvious answer is the B5...

Heck, I'm buying mine INSTEAD of an M5!

In the US, where the B5 is not available, I likely would go with the next generation Audi RS6.

Not an E90 M3?
Well the E90 M3 isn't going to be available for at least 1-2 years. So if I'd be buying a car other than the M5 now, it would be the RS4.

Edit: + Having a 4wd car here in Finland makes sense hiha

well I'm going to get the M5 no matter what so... I have no reason to answer this question! I haven't considered another car in a very long time.

Try ordering an M5 today and see when it will be available!

BMW has really got it wrong on this one, IMHO - the protection from depreciation will only be temporary, since the used market will eventually come to see the car (rightly or wrongly) as just a fast E60. So why limit production so severely?

If I could wait a bit, I would go for the next generation RS6. If it had to be now, I would go for the CLS 55 AMG.
