i sincerely think the SL is the most beautifully designed mass produced car ever.
It is a work of art on wheels.

I've got a neighbour with a droptop SL500. It's white on that rusty red leather and it's simply gorgeous. *mw*

M5 is my fav car, stupidly fast and a daily driver... SL 55 is sweet too, but its not the same or as practical

It depends what you will use the car for. If you use it for evening drives in the summer I'd probably get the SL55... But if you use it for a nice all round car I'd get the e60 M5

Hard choice but the M5 is such a beast and absolutley stunning in white!!! I'd have to pick M5.
Opt for the "Cinnamon" individual interiorl!

Thought about it for a bit, I'd say m5. I really like the SL55, but the m5 is IMO a little bit more car.

WRONG

first gen Viper GTS takes the prize.


If you are considering SL55, we can safely assume you dont need a car for 5 people.

Go with SL

SL rapes the M5 in terms of design and sex appeal, the only reason to get the m5 is for practicality and lets be honest you dont care about that :D

Sorry man, but between the Corvette, M5 and SL55, the Corvette has the best EPA fuel ecomony rating. At WOT i'm sure they all suck fuel like crazy.

(city/highway L/100km)
Corvette Z06 - 14/8
M5 - 18/11
SL55 - 18/11

I believe it was Tlaselva that was telling me that he had to pay the gas guzzler tax even with his e46 M3 but not with his Z06.

M5

Simply from an engineering standpoint. The M5 is just a technological free for all masterpiece (engine, transmisssion, suspension) that makes the SL looks like a car from the stoneage.

Anyways, drive both cars and judge for yourself. Here is a video in the meantime...the M5 cleans up the Mercedes, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Porsche and the M3...if it wasn't for the driver's "dorifto showtime" (listen closely to the announcer)... http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3526537519713129399&q=BMW+M5

wow hard choice.... if you dont need rear seats go for SL55 its just as fast to 200 km/h, it does handle very well, it has a big trunk with roof up, sound stock is more orgasmic, can be tuned for more power!!!!

But if you do need rear seats i'd go for m5.


On the other hand watch this ------> http://www.gt3000.com/secure/vids/one_lap_with_pcp.wmv?key=bf660c0ac0226110115b90560 a2011f3

this guy impression of the car:

To sum it up: I was a bit disappointed.

I don`t doubt the engines 500 bhp, but it doesn`t feel like that.
It misses torque so you always have to drive in high revs what is a bit annoying and really pushes the fuel consumption.
The sound isn`t too good either, when you start the cold engine it sound like a small diesel. When driving it gets better but is still not loud enough for my taste.

The suspension with the EDC is very good, the car feels very light and has good feedback.

The SMG is very aggressive, if you drive it in the fastest mode you get wheelspin when changing from 2nd to 3rd gear. That is the good side.
The bad side is that it`s not comfortable in any mode.

I think the M5 is too big and heavy to be a true sports car and to aggressive and uncomfortable to be good limousine.

Just my opinion.

an SL is sweet, a 2 seater that will get you broads you cant imagine. However I like the M5 a ton, a fast 4dr, you can do just about anything with. You wont get as many looks but it still has appeal.

M5 looks much much much better in my opinion!!

I think the SL is a MUCH hotter car, but the M5 is so much more practical.

Why not just go for the CLS 55 of the same color combo, since that has the best of both worlds!

I'd pick the SL just cause i'm a sucker for drop tops!

i was walking to class today and a BLACK CLS popped thru with HIDs on and system bumping i'm pretty sure EVERYONE short of the hot dog vendor broke their neck to check it out:eek:

CLS is a work of art imo :) it's a love it or hate it design however*wave*

if that was true there would be more SL65's than SL55's, so money is a factor, I see & work on these cars everyday, the ratio of SL55's to SL65's would be 15:1

and 55 is slow as ass? you must be retarded, it must be very slow considering it is faster than a majority of the cars on the road in Toronto.

how about this, after driving that Konig in Sweden the McLaren F1 must be the slowest car on the street.............duh
