Yes the 5 series is a heavy car, but you have to take into account it is a luxury saloon and not a lightweight performance car and hands down IMO the ultimate luxury saloon in comparison the XF, E-Class, Audi A6 you name it. Father drove them all and none of them came close to the driving dynamics and sheer class of the 5'er.
M5's are serious performance cars and the soundtrack is evidence of that, however there really isn't anywhere you could ring the neck off an M5 to show it's full potential. The V10 engine really isn't a match made in heaven with our roads here it's more suited for other countries. I've heard one at full noise!
What a joy it was to listen to.
BACK ON E90, E92 AND E93 TOPIC SORRY SHANE.
