Sad that the future is cars without a truly soulful engine.

There is no doubt the M4 is faster, likely the torque, a bit of the weight, a lot of the new tires vs the trash run flats the M5s times were recorded on.

However the M4 has squirrelly bouncy rear suspension that imo, makes it slightly worse for us amateur track day goers.

I Like them both, but like you, I'll take the M5 and V10 as long as I can keep it going. Excellent easy to drive track machine, and it really does Keep up with the M4. Fantastic M car.

If only we had a chance to see the cancelled competition version with the supercharged V10.
