    The definition of a car with an identity crisis imo...

    Surely the CS and CSL badges are for the agile, nimble, smaller cars that might see some track action from time to time....not a 5 series. M5 Comp is a fantastic car and highly accomplished, but leave it there IMO . Why the need to keep using (and diluting) the meaning of a "clubsport" badge by sticking it on a 4 door family saloon?

    What next ? A Panamera RS / GT2 ?

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but I think I'd take an M5 Comp for family duties and a tricked up E46 for fun.

    I do ever so slightly agree with you, and i even said so, at the first sign of an M5 CS. Being quite involved in the M5, and loving the car, i suppose the best of the best is what im aiming for, and the CS may be it. Will have a good look at it when it comes, but if its not going to be as good as hoped, will probs come back down into a crappy Competition model :D :muttley:

    I’d go Lady Gaga for a Panamera GT2; circa-800HP and rear-drive, like a sportier version of an older AMG :bow2:

    Does the M5 really need a CS model? The car isn’t billed as a track car so I don’t really see the point, surely it will just lead to a slightly more uncomfortable, slightly faster M5?

    I think your right in what you say, I honestly can't explore the power of mine, it drives great and under 100MPH can be used a lot on enpty roads, 90 MPH on Motorways any time, so great fast beast, any more power and IMO will be wasted.

    Its just marketing...the last thing (IMO) that the M5 needs is firmer suspension, bigger wheels tyres or whatever is on the menu for a CS....at least for the UK with its atrocious road surfaces/potholes.
    Its a car that in standard comp form does a 7:30 at the Nürburgring...so its already no slouch in the handling dept.
    But cars have to be sold so some sort of continuous "upgrades" have to be dreamt up.
