Depends what you mean by better car. If you are looking for Hp/Tq numbers, the CLS63 with the performance package is certainly better. Looks are subjective, so let's not argue which car looks better. Technologically, the M5 is a marvel with its engine, but you can say the M157 is just as impresive and maybe sounds better. Comfort may be on par, with Mercedes having the upper hand in creature comforts. I choose the M5 knowing how much thought and testing was done on it. BMW put many new innovations in this car and I personally think what turns most people off to this car are the fart sounds upon upshifts. Judging by the past, I think the BMW will edge out the Benz in driving experience. Just like how the C63 Coupe was nearly as good as the M3, but not on par.
