I had a 2001 BMW M5... absolutely loved that car.

It just became too needy maintenance-wise for a DD and a 3rd car just wasn't in the books at the time.

Wow nice car! Aside from B7 RS4, E39 M5 is my favorite sporty 4-door.

Curious if you drive a "S" trim G37 now, and if so, how does it compare to driving the M5?

That is just an awesome car that in my opinion looks best in black. Just a beaut. Bet you don't miss the insurance premiums however...

My post was about the car immediately preceding it, but what is still considered by many to be the ultimate sports sedan ain't too shabby either

I do drive an S trim. Itís a 2008 G35S.

On on a Daily basis, the biggest difference is the steering feel and the missing torque. But I have enjoyed using the G as a DD. Plenty comfortable and still fun to drive.

When driven hard, there is a rawness and balance that most ///M cars possess that I havenít found elsewhere.

But the the biggest difference is probably the sound. The way a car sounds is a huge part of the experience for me and there isnít much better than the S62 v8. The G is so quiet in stock form. Hoping to cure that soon.

Here is an exhaust video of my old M5

2000 Nissan Maxima SE. I had this car for 17 years until I got the G in January. I turned it over to my son and he decided he wanted the wheels black.

through high school and college i had the ford explorer sport trac and switched to a G25. Ultimately switched to the my current car (G37 sport). In all honesty, that ford was an absolute joy (mostly for the shenanigans it was involved in)
