Yes, but what will you do with your extra money that's left over after?

As for the E39 M5, I still think it's right up there as one of the most BMW's ever designed. If I could only have 1 BMW, it would be up there on the list. However, I still think the E9x M3 suits my needs better and feels more special to me, while still easily being DD-able.
To be honest, E39 M5 and E92 M3 are very similar cars in a lot of areas. VERY.

Agreed. it really comes down to whether you like torque or revving the crap out of an engine.
