The weight has increased, but the grip and lateral traction has been increased commensurately. The car can corner very well as an M Car should. It isn't a straight line car like the E63, CLS63 or S6. The M5 loves corners.
Nonetheless, it feels bigger and heavier than the e60 (because it is). That doesn't keep me from loving the car. I'm amazed at the performance, and haven't even found the limits yet.
