AMG for me. They produce some serious power from Merc engines. I heard there's this S 69 AMG with some 675 bhp. 0-60mph in less than 4 secs and 100 mph in around 7-8 secs.

675bhp S 69 AMG.

S69 AMG another article.

M Technik for me. Race car performance from everyday saloons is no ordinary feat.

AMG has amazing potential, but what I hate about them is the fact that theyv'e diluted the brand too much. There's an AMG in the A Class as well as the others which is just plain pathaetic. AND I really would love it if they tried and reduced a bit of the weight which the normal MB's have. I'm not saying change everything but atleast a bit of weight here and there would be good to make it a more nimble handler.
In the end, my heart says AMG but my mind says M, and for this one I'm gonna have to go with my mind.
On a different note, I really wish that MB would stick their noses out of AMG and McLaren and let them do their best in reducing, weight and making the best car possible. AMG has all the know-how but unless and until MB takes a steb-back, the AMGs will never be appreciated for what they can truly really do.

Exactly!

I couldnt have put it better!....
I absolutely love AMG... but then the fact that the manual option isnt available in some AMGs kinda sucks. Thats what dilutes AMG for me.

but in the end...im still undecided..so null vote.
(difficult choice here!!)

I voted for AMG after I seen the SL55 AMG and the CL55 AMG, they are awesome specially for the beautiful sound they make and then for the looks.

I'm still confused between AMG and M, M also has a lot of potential. I guess I should've nulled the vote.

I love their 2001 M5 that shells out about 400bhp! the 2005 M5 will give 507bhp!
I feel thats very very high for a 5 Series, a stock Ferrari 355 Spider gives about 380bhp, a stock 360 Spider gives about 400bhp...

2001 BMW M5


2005 BMW M5 [Bangled]
