Has someone tested (side-by-side) until more than 130 mph ? Does the M5 make a real difference until 60 mph ?

<i>: Has someone tested (side-by-side) until more than 130 mph ? Does the M5 make a real difference until 60 mph ?<p></i><p>If that is your concern then you are missing the point. The M5 is far superior to the 540i for many other reasons that cannot be well explained until you drive an M5. i.e. handling, ride, engine noise, feeling, etc..<p>I have been driving my M5 since I bought it in 1993 and about a year and a half ago I drove a 6-speed 540i. Even though the car is fast it had nothing to do with an M5. Very disappointing...<p>JP<p>PS: The M5 will be faster if that is your only concern.<br>

there is not a big difference until 60 mph : OK, M5 has 100 kg more weight, but isn't it 115 HP more powerful ??<p>5.5 sec 0-60 w/540i : possible ?<br>If yes, >20K USD more for a new M5 seems a lot !<br>Comments ?<p></i>
