That M5 is a great car, however at this altitude you will actually be slower than the 335. I guarantee it. Those cars get killed at this altitude. Excellent car but you will be disappointed if you are looking for a quicker car here in Denver.

^off the line. Top end, the m5s will still be faster. Also, I thought the E60s were all auto?

Around 120 or so, the M5 should start pulling. Therefore, the M5s are still faster top end...

I'm not arguing about where we can go how fast...I was just pointing out that m5s are faster than 335s at top speed

If you had gone to mfest last year you'd know this statement is not fully true for a tuned 335xi.

If you are concerned with the difference in maintenance costs between an SMG and a manual, maybe the M5 is not the car for you. I see this with P-cars all the time: The price is reasonable to get into one, but once they come in for their first $1500 service, they can't do it and the car eventually falls to shit. I believe the oil service is going to be in the neighborhood of $200 if not more.

I don't know you or your personal finance situation, but regardless of whether or not it's a SMG or a manual, it's going to be a maintenance pig. It's a V10, it's a BMW, and for crimminy, it's an M!

This does post does not reflect the awesomeness of a V10 M5, or maybe it does!

Where did you find a manual E60 M5? This must be one in a million. Perhaps it's something that you should get because of the rarity.

Are you talking about mph in a 1/4 mile?

No Alfred, I know that isn't relevant to your point... My point is I had no issues walking a tuned M5 all the way up to 140. Much past that, yeah I agree it would likely start to pull on the 335. But where the heck do you go those speeds outside of I70 with no one around in Utah

Damn it, Matt. Then, stop quoting/responding to what I say when we're not even talking about the same thing

I agree with you and V about not being able to go that fast in Colorado (or anywhere in the US for that matter) though. Only thing you get from buying an M5 or an M car in general (no offense to those M owners ) is "status."

So are you saying I have status? Sweet!
Oh yeah, we have cooler engine sounds too, more vroom vroom, less whoosh whoosh whine (both from broken turbos and whiney turbo drivers who's cars always seem to be broken)
