That being said I had a 550 for a while, an F10 I believe. I liked it, however it was certainly not a sports cars, but that's not what I bought it for. At that point I had a 2016 Camaro SS to get my jollies so it was fine.
Just because it's not a rwd car, doesn't make it any less of an M car.
I think he means handling wise the since the M5 has been becoming more and more numb with every generation, hence why he said its a luxury sedan.

Hockenheim Short track times:

F80 M3 - 1:13.10
F90 M5 - 1:10.60
MKVI Camaro SS - 1:14.00
F85 X5M - 1:14.40

Just because it’s not a rwd car, doesn’t make it any less of an M car.
Just because they can make a luxury sedan go around the track as fast as other "sportier" cars, doesn't mean it should. I go to the track here locally for my business a lot, you know how many M5s I've seen? I don't know but very few, probably less than a handful over the past 10 years. Rather have massaging seats in a 5 series than an M package.

That's just me though, wouldn't turn it away if someone gave one to me

Gotcha, didn’t think about the feedback feeling as another member mentioned.

Waiting for the face lift 5 series, not sure will be any special than the current one, may have to skip the G30 and hope for improvements with the next model, mind you the design direction is some how scary, true ugly fronts with backs that looks like Japanese cars.

My next vehicle will not be a BMW for sure, that's one thing I know.

I’m looking at 2021 992. 21 rs6. Or 21 panamera gran turismo. 911 or a wagon. Tough call.

We are retiring soon, so we refreshed the garage before the income goes away. Don't foresee the next car coming anytime soon, but when it does, it will likely be a truck of some sort. We like to camp and the X3 is limiting the size we can tow.

The 997's are just about on the bottom of the depreciation curve and low mile/1 owner cars seem to be creeping back up. The 991's look to still be heading downward, but they have more modern touches. Either way I'm sure I'll be happy.
Timing lined up sooner than I thought and I traded in my M for a 991 4S over the weekend. What a machine!

Probably a 3/4 ton diesel pickup truck. And a big camper trailer to go with it.

The way new models are going, I may quite possibly hold onto my 991.2 GT3 forever.

Maybe then grab the latest-and-greatest performance car 5+ years down the road if hybrid/EV technology on new models seems compelling, but the more I think about it the more I honestly feel the GT3 might be a permanent fixture and then compliment it with a new generation vehicle loaded with tech as a second car. Whatever the next gen McLaren, Lambo etc. is definitely won't be NA and analog but I bet it'll be damn fast.

C8 Corvette z06. I figure I have it in me to buy one more sports car that I can only drive half the year and is a massive depreciating asset before I realign my spending priorities. It's looking like the z06 will be the closest thing to the Italian car I really want but can't justify buying. The m4 has been fun, but I want to see what the next level of car feels like.

Apparently, I might be buying my old Mazdaspeed6 back this weekend, but that will only replace my beater Acura. Hellcat lease ends next year. I love the car & have legitimately thought about either buying at least end or picking up a used HC in my color of choice already modded. However, I really am tired of big car payments, but I also love playing with new toys. I might just daily the 6 & go car payment free for a bit. No plans to sell the Miata so I'll have that too.

If I get something to replace the Hellcat, it'll likely be a much cheaper payment unless my financial situation changes, but unsure what to get b/c it still has to be fun to drive, fairly quick & be a decent daily for PA winters (At least 12s stock with a real trap speed, not 105 MPH) & have some mod potential without modding being pointless unless I spend big $.

In other words, I am completely lost!

I’m probably getting the new vette next since I still want a hardtop convertible. I was going to keep my current F33 for a winter car but I will give it to my daughter and get a better winter car for me and the dog.
