Having owned a BMW M5 (2001) and a BMW M3 I wanted more of an every day driver, but stillbe able to enjoy great performance, handling, acceleration, and stopping power.The STS-VV, E55 and M5 are all great cars, but different. So far I am totaly impressed with the STS-V and am happy with my choice. My wife, who drives a BMW 740i sport and would never drive an M5 or E55, loves the STS-V.
Great build quality and interior. Terrific engine and transmission. Awesome brakes. All this and it is still docile in heavy traffic
The headliner not up to the ones in the E55 or BMW.
