M5 ownz, I told you people. Its the Best M5 yet. The way it combines technology, and sortiness with an everyday saloon is incredible. this car will eat pretty much anything(stock) on the track. And for all the 7 spd SMG haters, its fast, really fast...

Yeah its a defenetly a piece of art! But we will see how the engine would hold and the new SMGIII, Maybe in a 3-4 years i'll switch who knows *shiner* But for now E55 is the best, Cant beat the comfort and effortless acceleration!

M5 owns

that new benz styling doesnt really do anything for me, it kinda looks like a 4dr Toyota Solara

I think both cars are beautiful, and any one of us would be lucky to drive one. I would go for the M5 personally, but that Merc is really nice. Thanks for the article, I admittedly dont know too much about Mercedes (specs and stuff) so it was nice to learn something.

I'm sorry but that is one ugly Benz, and I love Benz too so it's hard for me to say it, but it's ****ing ugly!

M5 for life!

How could something so gorgeous(like the previous E55 in the pic), turn into something so fugly?


Current automobile designs have reached an all-time low.

Im sorry GEEE$, but i have to disagree, that previous gen e55, was UGLY. Its one of three benz's I hate with a passion. (previous gen S, previous gen E and previous gen SLK)

btw thats CLS not E55, so it has nothing to do with the car you posted

Oh I know they're different automobiles s-fing...I was simply showing where Mercedes(and BMW, & AUDI for that matter) have gone. I just had that pic readily available so I used an older merc for comparison sake.

I think they are all travelling in a downward spiral. They certainly aren't becoming classic sedans, again, only IMO.

i hated the CLS looks also when i saw it on pics.. but it's really 'different' when i saw it in person..

i drove the CSL500 couple of weeks ago.. and it was a damn good ride.. and i think the rear is great.. but i also love the new looks of the new M5.. (and the CSL).. can't wait to get mine..

What worries me are the low torque numbers compared to the benz. Sure 500hp is sweet but torque is just as important. Anyway...guess I should keep my mouth shut before getting a drive in it.

I'd take an E39 M5 over eitheir! It looks better, and I have to row the boat myself. The E60 is not pretty. I never thought I'd say it myself, but I think the benz looks better.

i think it's just me. but i see W210 E55 just an ordinary car. it doesn't have spectcular styling, nor performance, nor handling, nor power. and it's not like regular E-klasse chassis was good to begin with.

it sounds like you just can't monv on from the old stuff. that's all.
there's nothing bad about it though. at least i know part of me is like that too. :)

the M5 is good alright. but it doesn't really matter if you can only lust it over magazine pictures, rather than actually driving in it. :(

997 porsche?


For every 1 hit, there seem to be about 10+ misses. Sure the 997 is awesome, but it's still no 993(T).

You have the 645, the 997, the ferraris(less the enzo cuz that's not so gorgeous), the aston's, and and a couple of other high-end designs....that's about it.

Take a look at the new A4s, A6's, 5's, 3's, STI, Maxima, Q45, RX8 etc etc...they all seem to be going downhill in terms of design. There aren't too many dropdead gorgeous cars in the mid-range market.

I am completely stuck in the classic european car era, no doubt about that. It doesn't mean I cannot appreciate an excellent design when it occurs, it's just not that common these days. They have a real hit with the 645, and the new Boxster S is going to be a slammer aswell.

There aren't too many cars that have been designed from this era, that will ever be called a classic.

I dig your own opinion, that's kool. *th-up*

I think some opinions will change once it's seen in person. Many cars represent MUCH better in the flesh.

You are absolutely correct. That's why, one day I will own an newer model M5, prolly wont be the Latest, or even brand new, but it'll be something to remember.

sorry, i think you misunderstood me a bit.

i meant M5 is no good at the moment since it's still a year away. so all of us can only lust over magazine picture instead of driving in it. :)
meanwhile i see AMG_POWER is enjoying his car...
