I've been a die hard Benzo fan ever since i was born. the E55 AMG has always been my favorite, but over the past years, i would've taken the M5 over the E55. Let's get serious here, the M5 is overall better than the E55, only but a bit, but it is better. Plus, it's in stick. But yesterday when i went to the Chicago Auto Show and saw the new version of my baby on display, i held back an orgasm. Forget M5. I don't care if it's faster. They way the new E55 looks and all of it's features i'd take it over 10 M5s and a 750il any day.
