If There Were No F10 M5...

I got asked this question the other day and really couldn't come up with a good/satisfying answer: What would you have purchased if you didn't get a F10 M5?

I guess another way of looking at this question is what other performance sedan were you considering besides the M5?

If i think long and hard there wasn't anything else I really wanted, the F10 M5 was my only option this time around - maybe waited for an F80 M3?

Looked at and test drove both the E63 AMG and the S6.. Neither of which had every thing I was looking for in this class of a car. Being a faithful BMW owner now for over 10 years it was relatively simple though if I can't get the dealer to fix the creaks and squeaks coming from both doors after only 1100 miles I may never buy another.
