I've owned both of these cars and they are very different beasts. Look at the data - the 63 is more powerful, more torque, weighs less and has a much better gearbox than the ropy SMGIII in the M5. I've owned both of these cars and both are superb, but the 63 is an easier car to live with everyday (i had far less faults with that than the M5.)

I agree, if you want to gauge a super car on a straight line, you might as well pair them up against American muscle cars that worthless on the track. So in other words so are Mercs, useless!!!! Go measure a Merc against a Mustang or Corvette then! Crap!!!! BMW is truly the ultimate driving machine and the most powerful letter in the world is????? ///M

The E36s(M3) , E34s(M5) and E30s(M3) are strong and noble yes

Did I say something about M cars? I said old BMWs are owned exclusively by young hooligans. Which is absolutely obvious if you have ever been in any post-soviet country.

1)Do you own somekind of car?
2)Are you a kid?

I am a kid and I own nothing.

The E36s(M3) , E34s(M5) and E30s(M3) are strong and noble yes.These three cars are both very old.And if you tell others they are BMW owners and fanboys , so i ask you a question
1)Do you own somekind of car?
2)Are you a kid?
The mercedes E63 amg is only good in roads and for long trips...the M5 will crush it in speeds and acceleration...don't get me wrong the V8 is very nice but the V10 sound is so much nicer!

BMW is a car for THE STRONG AND NOBLE.

Since when these hooligans driving E36s, E34s and E30s have been "the strong and noble?"

No, my friend,
I say this only because I look at things fairly. merc is a for-girls-only or for-an-aged-people car, and BMW is a car for THE STRONG AND NOBLE.

Pathetic e63 can't be faster than M5 neither on a straight line, nor on the track. REMEMBER, HUMANITY: M5 IS THE GODFATHER OF ALL SUPER-SALOONS. It's an everlasting Legend. And merc is an everlasting lose-e-e-r!!!

E63 is faster then M5 on straightline.

Not according to the data we have its not..... the M5 is over a second quicker to 200kph. If you have a source for better E63 numbers please post it and we'll update the facts.

BMW M5 IS CULTURE OF MAKING THE KING OF SEDANS .
mercedes e 63 amg is culture of finishing the last if you're lucky.And if you're not, flying off the road and then being transferred right to the morgue.
