Raced a 2018 M550 w/2006 E60 M5

A few days ago i was minding my own business. Came to a traffic light ,and a 18 M550 pulled next to me. He gave me the sign to run. I accepted the challenge. Switched to M mode, DCS off and green light we went. We had no cars in front of us. I could see the next red light ahead.

This M550 was extremely fast. Off the line a little ahead of me. I switched to 2nd gear and caught up. 3rd gear I was ahead by a quarter of car length.

We had to slow down at the traffic light. He continued ahead and I went left.

I was really surprised how fast this car is. I can imagine the new M5.

Has anyone run against a M550 your E60 of 2018 M5.

My car has a Active Autowerke alpha tune and Exhaust. Other than that it is stock.
