I've heard praises on the CLS63 but I don't think this competes with the CLS. The M5 is a direct E63 AMG competitor. The upcoming M6 Gran Coupe will be the CLS rival.

I've only had the e60 for just over a year now, so it's still "new" to me..haha

haha, think about the people receiving a 4 cylinder in the new 528i lol

It warm my heart a little that the comparisons of the new M5 often point back to the E39 M5 Not the fasted car by today's standards, but a great driving experience. I don't see ours going anywhere anytime soon.

I've said that since day one and have even posted side by side comparison videos. They sound exactly alike.

I like the sound of the impreza, just not on an ///M.

Especially since one is a 4-banger and one is a 8-cyclinder.

AMG does just fine making a mean sounding turbo V8.

The new CLS63 is one amazing looking/sounding automobile.

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.

The CLS is a boat, although so is the M5. I really doubt that the CLS63 drives as well as the M5 if the normal versions of each are any indication.

No offense.....but it seems like you have over dosed on KoolAid already by buying an M3. I guess all the praise the M3 gets....does not seem too unfair to you.

Anyways bottom line is the M cars have always been better then the competition as an all rounder. There are cars that can go faster, or are cheaper, go faster around the track. But none of them can package it all like M does in perfect dose of each. This was the case with M3 or last M5 etc. The M6 did not get the praise from the press as you suggested. You know why because BMW could have done a lot more to it and just left it as sort of half finished job as a 2 door M5. So the Koolaid that press gives you to drink is not so sweet when the car itself is not all that.

If the car is really good...... what do you want them to say?..... it is not good. Press did not like M6 but loved M5 and M3. So I think that is a bogus claim.The MB AMG cars can go fast but can't handle like BMW M cars and that is a fact not a myth. Now your heart is set on a CLS 63AMG so you can go around and feel better by claiming that press is bias against MB and others when it comes to an M car.

If you think press is so bias and feeds you great koolaid. Then why did you not buy the C63 AMG and refused to drink Koolaid seems like after all their must be something in that koolaid as you went out and bought over hyped M3.

Give us one instance where press compared the M car and AMG car was actually better and I will put some merit in your post.

They'll say the same old things: CLS63/E63: pros: Gods own torque, great seats, locomotive fast.....Cons: Too heavy, too stiff.....
M5: Pros: Wolf in sheeps clothing, precision handling for size, unbelievable kick in the pants, fantastic chassis......Cons: Wolf in sheeps clothing, brakes not up to tracking, thats it.

They'll place the M5 in 1st(mostly because its a new car)the CLS63/E63 in 2nd, CTS-V in 3rd and the Jag last.
I like the new M5 and will be test driving it when it comes to the states, but I dont overdose on KoolAid like some others and will also be driving the CLS 63 AMG

I can already foresee another super saloon shoot-out on the next season of Top Gear.
Clarkson drives the E63
Hammond drives the M5
Captain Slow drives the slowest car there... I'm guessing Audi or Jag

Predictable but as if you aren't going to watch it

For the most part I agree. Anyone who isn't a fanboy can tell you that there are cars better for handling (Mitsubishi Evo) or can drive quicker in a straight line (any competing AMG Merc) but BMW does it better as a whole package which has been their focus. I read in another thread that a user would rather purchase an E63 because the 0-60 time was in the 3 second range while the M5 was in the mid-4's trying to downplay how good the F10 M5 really is. The C63 has a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds vs. the M3's mid-4's. Even to this day, without nitpicking at individual things and looking at the car as a whole, which has been the better car?

As positive as these reviews/first tests have been, you can't really come to a conclusion other than that the F10 M5 is an amazing machine, standing by itself (like you would think otherwise for a M car.) Before we can say how good the M5 really is, we will need the comparisons against the competition.

I think that might come well after the release of the M5. I think for the initial review, James May is doing a solo like he did with the 760Li. But regardless if that may or may not happen, would definitely love to see the three-way comparison!

thats what i tried to convey in my first post on this thread. You said it better though.

I'm excited about the F10 M5 as much as the next guy, but Instead of saying subjective things like "it's awesome, its great, awe inspiring" etc, I would like to see some real tangible, comparison figures to other cars in its class that it would compete with. That should show the true nature of the new M5 and how it holds up as compared to Mercedes AMG, Audi, Porsche, CTS-V, pick your flavor. Perhaps its too early for this, since the car is new, but i'm sure it will come in time.

i'm sure the fan boy police is going to flame us. lol Don't get me wrong, i'm a BMW fan like the rest of them

Moaners will never quit moaning, will they? Even though all reviews so far, have already stated that the M5 F10 is a far better car than the M5 E60, the moaners will continue to moan. Unfuckingbelievable...
