2020 M550i vs M5 F10, do i have a chance ?

Hi all,

So yesterday I was just cruising around in Sport + and did a quick pull under a bridge. Seconds later, a F10 M5 flies by and has clearly had work done to it. His exhaust is much louder, significantly louder pops and bangs and I can hear the turbos spinning up too.

I've heard that a 2020 and up stock M550 would beat a F10 in straight line, but how about one with mods ? .....just curious. I know it depends on how many mods etc.

If we're talking from a dig, the M550i would handily win against an untuned car with the combo of AWD and much better* launch control, although the M5 would start closing the gap as speed builds. It sounds like the M5 is catless and thus a good chance it has a tune. In that case I imagine it would rapidly close the gap and start pulling away sometime after 60 when it gets traction in 3rd.

From a roll the M550i would lose against an untuned M5 by a decent amount and a tuned one would smoke it.


*assuming BMW ever fixed it

F10 M5 is lighter and have more power.
M550 has more torque and AWD.
Rolling and 0-100 mph M5 is winner no doubt.
0-60 M550 is winner…
Ofcourse if both cars are stock!
