I wonder if the F10 still uses the run flat tyres? I really dislike the harsh ride from them.

I prefer 5 series with M Sport package over E series.

Looks like the upcoming, refreshed AMG beast might be able to eat the F10 M5 for breakfast. That sucks !

The Eternal battle? Never for me. My dad, mother-in-law, other older relatives drive the E, I drive the BMW. Different driving dynamics, comfort level, enjoyment etc. I have driven my dad's E and it is so numb, which works very well for some people. If you enjoy driving, go for the BMW without a second thought

While the 5 looks better than the 3er because it looks more balanced due to the longer wheelbase, the 5er now is hard to distinguish from behind and side profile from the 3er.

Old thread is old.

Anyway he is talking about 0-60, the new E63 will launch faster cause of AWD. The higher HP will come into play after 100mph where the M5 will eat the E63.

I test drove a E class last week. The interior looks terrible! Who puts a huge analog clock next to the speedometer?
