BMW M5 versus Mercedes E63 AMG at Dunsfold
James likes it. Stig likes it. But how does the new BMW M5 stack up to Merc's E63 AMG?

Not so the M5. It’s the product of endless honing and
hooning. Those buttons around the gearlever allow you to individually change
the steering, suspension, engine response, traction and gearbox – three levels
for each one. Often slightly redundant, here they fundamentally change the
car’s behaviour from something that’ll cruise with the ease and refinement of
a 530d into something that’ll stalk supercars.
