I do think that the E55 looks nicer and for sure has more room in the interior. I will be driving it on the freeway alot and that is why I am leaning towards the E55 with the automatic. The 2001 model is coming with a 6 speed auto which should make the shift points closer together.
About that test drive....that is a HUGE problem. I have not seen any M5's in stock anywhere that the dealer would let someone test drive. Same with the E55. Very hard to actually find one at a dealer that can be driven. I have seen both and sat in both but not driven either one. That makes it hard to feel totally comfortable when spending the 70k on a product that you have only seen (not drivin) and read about.
Any body know any dealers in Southern California (San Diego area) that have an M5 that can be test driven?
Thanks for all the comments.
