I was wondering which car I should get. Currently I owned an E class, but would like to upgrade to a E55. My friend has a M5, which he was nice enough to let me test drive it. I love the feel and the drive of the car. However, I haven't test drive the E55. How does the E55 stack up to the M5. Thanks.<br>

Have you read the following messages as a start?

Try to find a E55 to test drive, more difficult than finding a M5 but not impossible..

There's 3 cars to consider in this class - E55, M5, XJR. I think that in terms of performance, fit and finish, they are essentially equal. So it boils down to auto vs manual transmission. The M5 is the only manual. If you want an auto tranny, its the e55 vs XJR. The XJR comes up short in rear seat space but has the most elegant interior appointments. I wanted the auto tranny and the rear seat space, so it was the E55 for me. I have found that driving the E55 is about the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

This should help

Well...you could either get a beautiful beast that is already a classic legend...<br><img src="http://209.132.49.149/images-large/1999_bmw_m5-5.jpg"><br>or you could get an E430 sport...err...I mean E55. Sorry guys...I just keep getting those two confused...hahahaha. I guess if you guys didn't have the E55 badge, we would never know the difference...lol<br><img src="http://www.mbworld.org/upload/2000/DrewE55rear.jpg">

What is that ugly purple thing doing here..

Drew, isn't it amusing how little kids put their pride and joy on their dream cars defending them like crazy?<p>There is a big difference between M5 owners and M5 day-dreamers, the former get registered at bmwm5.com and share their insightful experiences, whereas the latter would hang out at bimmer.org making silly anonymous comments.<p>Don't let this idiot we see here ruin the image of most mature M5 owners.

How true ...

"Aussie2" threw down the gaunlet to me tonight ... but did so with the respect that both of these fine cars deserve.<p>The blue M5 is likely this kid's neighbor's, or a pic snagged from another site ... I have yet to meet a 'real' M5 owner who acts as childish as that bozo.<p>

Senile

Perhaps you're squinting too hard at the screen. I guess only old people with poor eyesight have trouble recognizing an M5.

Anything but purple!

You know Drew, I bet this kid collects his mighty M5 screen shots wallpaper in his computer, read all M5 articles and defend the car pretending that he has one or is about to get one!<p>Still, I think he got tacky taste, he should have at least posted an M5 in a better color, that Batgirl purple is just too much!

Take it easy, you are the one who picked the girlie purple colour!

But hey, no hard feelings, your purple car can still be considered a classic. We're very open-minded.

You have missed the point, we don't want others to be able to tell the difference between the E55 an

...just like some M5 owners choose to debadget their M5 and remove the spoiler.<p>I guess you're the tastelessly showy one who can't live without the badges and add-ons and must flaunt to the world what set of hot-wheels you have?<p>It's ok, we understand, we have seen many like you.<p>But don't go to the M5 board telling others how heated the messages are here, they are not. <p>People only see a little fool running around talking about 'pussies', 'viagra', 'old fart', etc. trying so hard to appear witty. I'm afraid you have totally over-estimated your sense of humour, my dear little M5 warrior.<p>The messages are not heated, you are the only one getting all the heat looking like an idiot lost in wonderland.<p>However, watching you displaying your stupidity desperately fighting back has the 'black comedy' effect, you know, it's rather funny in a strange way.<p>So.. please keep up the good work whoever you are, you have our full support!

Is this better?

Apparently you are color blind. Le Mans Blue is not purple, but then again you people have mental problems as it is, so it's excused.<br><img src="http://car.boxter.pe.kr/gallery/bmw/m5/m5_14.jpg"><br>How you guys think the interior on your 430 is nicer, baffles me...<br><img src="http://car.boxter.pe.kr/gallery/bmw/m5/m5_12.jpg">

Oh so, so now you're a homophobe?

What are you one of those dillusional religious freaks? Open-minded? Hah...I don't think so. Any idiot that posts using playground antics and has to resort to calling people homosexuals, needs to be taken out and beaten. It's the 21st century...but we still have to deal with old minds, and old beliefs. Your vain speculations are a mere reflection of your inutility as a human being.<p>Plain and simple: You're a fool Drew...I pity you.

My conlusions on you sad people

<u>Another E55 owner</u><br>How long did that take you to right? I bet you had to sit there and re-read your post plenty of times to make sure you got your insignificant point across. You're obviously a middle aged, self employed white male, who has to come across with a condescending tone to appear intelligent and give yourself a sense of self-worth. It's ok, I understand, I have dealt with imbecility on many levels...and you simply are another "one". BTW, you're also a fuckin racist which really sucks. I hope you don't pass your archaic qualities onto others.<p><u>Drew</u><br>Drew...you're not even worth talking about.<p><u>E</u><br>You're just an immature fool who can't even come up with a good argument. "You picked purple...nahnahnahnah"...please spare me your ineptitude.
