For me the chassis and the DCT were the deciding factors to choose the M5 over the AMG. I wonder if at the end of it all the old adage, "There's no substitute for cubic inches" will trump all of the technology thrown at both the Mercedes and BMW motors?

I think the displacement factor will play a role in the tune gains... and I agree the chassis and DCT creates a better driver with the F10.
