My GT2 is about 40 seconds faster on the ring meaning these cars are like MODEL Ts to me but if your happy, thats all that counts.

I have both, my DB9 being a Sports Pack Manual.

They are similar in performanc but quite different in character. I love both. The M5 must be quicker at the top end. The DB9 is the more involving dive.
