    • The new F10 M5 takes on a 6 speed manual CTS-V from a stop and from a roll - Even match?

      Finally some direct comparisons between the two super sedans. These are runs on the track between two brothers one of whom has the F10 M5 and the other with a 6 speed manual CTS-V. Both cars we are stock. The runs are very close with the first video featuring a roll on that is neck and neck. The second video has runs from a stop and the M5 takes two runs and the CTS-V takes two showing whomever got the better launch got the win.

      It is a bit surprising the cars from a roll looked to be even as we would expect the M5 with its dual clutch to have an advantage there on the CTS-V. This is the best comparison we have of actual owners squaring off until we see the cars on the drag strip.

        No, I'll have a domestic site soon enough. I've made the decision to evolve this into an all around performance car site. I just need to figure out how to clone myself.

        I have an awesome idea in my head how to redefine automotive sites. I just need to transfer it to reality. A few hundred thousand dollars wouldn't hurt either.

        How much does it cost to run a site like this? and how much a site with many vendors earn from vendors?

        It varies. A dedicated server upped our costs a bit. All vendors dont pay equal. It really is about mass the bigger it gets the more money you can make.

        If you decide to add some moderators I would gladly lend a hand. I enjoy the site...

        In the meantime great vids and honest comparisons of the two cars. I still want a V wagon dropped on 20" CCW's or somoe deep dish convex wheels. The M5 would appear to be the better car acceleration wise especially from a dig and/or the upper range of a roll.

        This does not surprise me. The new V is one of the most amazing cars ever made (esp at the price point), Domestic or not. The powertrain is UNREAL.

        Engine: I know it's easy to hate on the pushrod component, but look at the performance, efficiency and reliability - the thing craps on competition. Eaton TVS with integrated cooler? Brilliant.

        Trans: TR-6060. Beast.

        I will probably get a V wagon when they drop more in price - I'm a huge fanboy.

        and all its takes is $3500 WITH labor to make it a 10 sec car...upper/lower kit, intake, injectors, headers and cam and your doing 10.6-10.9 @127-129...can beat that for the price

        N54 is devil's engine, having a N54 powered car is a big sin. But what's up with the X3? I don't see any issues in that.

        Well, Having a X3 gives you more chance to win the moderator seat. X3 is great. the only car that my sister couldn't wreck was that car, shows how great that is.

        These cars are awesome. I agree that maybe interior wise the M5 is much more refined etc, but man, when you get on the V it's just a pleasure to drive. Plus, either the V driver is a great shifter or the DCT in the M5 is on normal drive mode, because of some of the runs.

        Plus, I don't know how some people talk of modding... I break this thing loose in 3rd gear. I have yet to EVER launch it clean in first. I don't think that mods are too necessary, but maybe if this forum does to me what happened with my 335i, ill be modding this thing!

        ^not sure how you break it loose in 3RD Gear. I drive my bro's and if you are on dry pavement you can floor 2nd gear without breaking loose let alone 3rd.
