    Re: Autocar: M5 vs Quattroporte vs E55 AMG

    Great article, thanks!

    (Brit magazines are always best)

    Re: Autocar: M5 vs Quattroporte vs E55 AMG


    Thanks for the article!

    Surprising to me that they compare it to the 997 S in terms of vehicle dynamics, including longitudinal! If that's the case, everything is fine again!

    I can justify the Porsche's price tag over the likes of M5 and E55 if it doesn't get that much behind in acceleration. In terms of deceleration and handling the Porsche is far ahead, hands down. It still surprises me that the Bimmer has a fairly weak brake system, this was the case in the previous model already and a lot of customers complained about it!

    Greetings!

    Well, at least they are consistent.

    Unfortunately, also in the standard of their styling in recent times.

    Yeah, that's a problem with all the BMW's (even M3). I don't understand why they insist on those 1-piston steel calipers. They need big Brembos. Even Cadillac, Subaru, and Mitsubishi use Brembos now...

    Re: Autocar: M5 vs Quattroporte vs E55 AMG

    BMW used a rather sophisticated brake disc system on the M3 at front but this doesn't seem to help anything...

    Fritz,

    I somehow have to agree on the design - though I personally know about the achievement of several designers <i just don't get it when it's BMW's turn. There is no true consistency in appereance or direction on the 7-series' shape, same on the 5-series which seems to have a rather rapidly outgoing styling theme and I am quite curious to see the 1-series on the street. I just saw one yesterday driving by the BMW dealer. It's pet-like front lights might make it look quite sympathetic...

    What comes on top of that is not even quality and especially interior feel comes close to what it was five years ago. Same goes to this distinctive "driver feeling" that so many BMWs offered in the past. Do they really believe a rock-solid suspension and a propeller badge is all customers are looking for?

    Sorry, I just became a bit enthusiastic on that one.
