Thanks for the post! This review, much like previous ones, pretty much summarizes what this car is about and reflects opinions of M5 (F10) owners including myself

Unlike my street race experience with summer tires in -1C on a wet road, it absolutely obliterated M5 (E60) in a straight line and on Sachsenring by F10's 1:38.90 vs E60's 1:43.77. Good to see an improvement proven and settle any doubts. Nonetheless I think M5 (E60) is and will be a respected and feared car road car for years to come.

Great review - but disappointingly short. Will they do another?

I was smiling whenever the E60 or F10 started to slide around corners! But I do agree, the review was a too short and disappointed that they didn't show the lap with the Stig. I'm hoping they do another one pitting it against the competition.

Very nice! I wish I could see the Stig just try to ruin that car!

I am sure when BMW inevitably releases some performance package for it they will test again again. Or they will test the M6.

But yeah I agree with y'all it was way too short. I would have rather not had an F1 driver on.

To be honest, both Top Gear and Fifth Gear reviews were pretty underwhelming. Fun but underwhelming.

I didn't see a jet place race. Take down the article saying so on the front page, very misleading.

Depends on what you mean by all round. My take is it is amazing a 4 door luxury car can go that fast, but there are faster purpose build cars. There are also people who prefer 2 door cars.

Don't know the actual title but it's from the soundtrack from the movie Hanna by the Chemical Brothers.

Traction Control was going crazy when he was getting off the line in the drag race.
