I hate the way the Mercedes looks, the Beemer looks so much better, especially the Hamann version. And the engine is better too. I would rather be seen in the M5 than in any other car. The F1 is nice, but it's too much of a racing car. It's not practical enough. The M5 is practical, fast, and comfortable. Besides, it could already smoke 98% of the people that pull up beside me at a stop light. By the way, what is the correct spelling of Beemer? Bimmer? i've seen so many diufferent versions.
