What do you mean? The E39 M5 was, and continues to be one of the greatest sport sedans ever made. I'd have that M5 over the X6 every time!
As it is, the two cars are very different in their uses.

A true BMW fan would hands down choose the e39 M5 over the butt-ugly crossover that is the X6. I know I would.

You'll find him in the best of cars but for him the best is still his E39 M5. That is the reason so many cars have come and gone but the E39 still occupies its space in his garage.

On a personal note i would only have the wheels back in the original colour and would pick it up in a heart beat. Not that i have not tried but no response . 6 speed manual, 400 horses, 500 nm torque, top speed of 250 kmph, 0-60 miles in 5.2 seconds and looks to kill. A complete sleeper in my opinioun.

Default clarify about my previous post

I totally agree with you guys ...M5 is best no comparison with X6 not even X6M but i can say after a while its refresh to see him in new car and i again say that their is no comparison between M5 and X6 totally different class ..

What i mean to say with BMW fan is got new as BMW rather than Q7 which is Bollywood trend these days.


I personal own X5 M and by far you cant compare them to M3/M5

Anyone who has seen Tiff Needell's TD of the E39 M5, will know what it is capable of. It is plainly the last 'Wolf in sheeps clothing'. No comparison.

The three brothers share their cars and i figure since Suhail has the Q7 it was pointless getting another. This car was gifted to Salman from a friend who owns a BMW dealership in Ahemdabad or some place in Gujrat.

How come you have hidden you X5 M from all of us ?

Read in today's Ahmedabad mirror about Sanjay Dutt getting a bentley as his b'dAy gift from mrs. Dutt. The car would be delivered to him around November.

Guys, Sanjay Dutt has been gifted a Bentley Mulsanne!!! A friend of mine lives next to his building and he has apparently seen the car closely. I have asked him for some pictures.
