S6: 213 points
E63: 210 points
M5: 193 points

S6 destroyed in the vehicle category. (Ergonomics, features, fit & finish, etc.) 93 points to E63's 79 & M5's 77.

M5 would have won powertrain but lost points for the tranny and fuel economy.

E63 won chassis category. 57 to S6's 51 & M5's 50. M5 lost points for steering feel and brake feel.

Fun to drive factor: S6, 20; E63, 23; M5, 18.

"It isn't about what BMW got wrong, the M5 is a dazzling and beautiful vehicle. It's about what the others are getting so right."
