Thumbs up M5 Or Alpina B7 2013

My brother looking for a new whip. I told him go with the M5. Any input is great boys and girls.

Thanks

M5. B7 doesn't come close in performance.

Definitely F10 M5, but if I considering only the B7 I'd pick the Audi S8 instead.



The only department that the S8 and the B7 beat the F10 M5 in, is in space. Cabin space and trunk space are bigger in both of those compared to the M5. Don't know how much room he needs though.

That B7 is spectacularly beautiful in person. The M5 is definitely more of a sports car, but a short wheelbase xDrive sounds just about right to me.

I had the same decision. I really want a B7 but went with M5 for performance.

I would choose the M5. It has the performance and it's also pretty spacious.

Congrats on the new ride! We just got a Black on Silverstone in stock that is absolutely beautiful. It's unspoken for also which I couldn't believe, they don't usually last even a day on the lot up here. Have fun!
