If you're going to deny links between racing programs and roadcars, then nothing I say here is going to make you a believer.

Links to sports car racing? Yeah those exist. Pretty easy to see connections especially with Porsche. But prototype racing... sorry man I don't see it. Maybe it helps establish some broad design principals or technology (example: KERS) but I tend to think mostly its just dope racecars posters hanging in the dealer waiting room, magazine ads, and some unpainted CF trim that makes rich guys feel secure wearing nomex to their local yearly HPDE.

Clearly fake news - everyone knows the 5 series is utterly horrible.

It's settled... The 5-series is the standard this time around. Thus far, it has beaten the new E-class in every comparison.
