m3 to m5

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I went from an e90 m3 to an f10 m5 and couldn't be happier. As much as I loved my m3, the m5 is too much of a beast to look back. Here are some pictures...

Both are sweet!

What is your F10 dropped on?
And the wheel specs?

I love to see posts like this. I get my M5 in about a week and am sick that I have to give up my beloved E90. I keep second guessing my decision but have not seen anyone say they regretted it. I really like the athleticism of the M3, but I hear the M5 just blows it away when it comes to power. (Yes, I have not test driven it....in fact, never even drove the 5 series yet...)

I made the exact same change. E90 M3 to F10 M5 and haven't had a single second of regret. Absolutely love the decision.

congrats on the new car... i made a similar choice, i traded in my 1M for the M5 and i can honestly say i love the M5 a little more than the 1M.... it just works with our family needs.

Absolutely...I missed my e90 for a little bit, but it doesn't compare at all to the m5! It's definitely a bigger/longer car, but you'll get used to that in no time. Congrats! You'll love it.

Thanks! A little push from my brother, who went from an e60 m5 to an f10 m5 was all I needed. lol

No doubt! I got hooked when I drove my brother's for the first time. I've had it about 4.5 mths, but didn't feel worthy of posting any pics until the wheels finally got here. hahah
