Couple things.

The steering is meh on the M5.

The car he was driving wasn't capable of being driven hard.

I have one of the first E39 M5's imported into the country, I want to say it's like the 40 something car imported in. It burns oil like no other. Good Lord it goes through half a quart every 300 miles. Which is considered normal via the owners manual btw.

So they have their issues. But for a car that can do it all without causing much of a ruckus? M5 takes it hands down in the stable. Just did a 1200 mile road trip with friends and it did it without a hiccup other than needing oil (that's part of owning this particular one haha).
