    Lovely blue color. Surprised a flashy color would look so good on a big sedan.

    Those power #'s are impressive. Tuners should be able to get 100+ hp easy out of those turbos.

    Looks the goods but still slower then a CTS-V.
    When will Caddy give me a chance to buy one?

    I hate how the pedestrian crash standards make it look all pug nose'd. That engine bay is dead-nuts sexy though.

    Meh, it looks like a stretched 3 series. Not sure what's going on with the lower intakes:



    I like the ones on the M3 better:

    You don't know that. I assume you're just going off of BMW M's official figures.

    Gahhh, hate the new noses on these BMWs. Freaking pedestrian crash standards.

    I wonder when mgescuro will comment on the fact the new M has LESS HP than the current CTS-V. He was sure the new M would blow past the CTS-V's numbers. Had Cadillac done this you'd hear gnashing of teeth worldwide as folks proclaimed how lame Cadillac was to release a new version of its performance car that is less powerful than its competitors.

    I do find the new M5 boring. But then, they all look boring. I guess they opted to reuse the 3-series front clip. At least it's less ugly than the 5 and 7 noses.

    Oh boy, the surfacing has spread to the inside now too. How attractive.

    Wake me when the four door muscle and sports sedan craze is over, will you?

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    It really does not matter for the CTS V at this point, who is slower or who is faster. CTS V has already established itself as a contender in this class.

    For some reason, the M5 does not do it for me anymore. Perhaps its because I see a fair number of them around here.

    Mgescuro will say numbers are not the only consideration in this class.. Crocodile leather inserts and stuff like that matters...
