The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 BMW M5 has electrifying performance, but is saddled with an overdose of technology and a body in need of a few nips and tucks. The 2008 Audi S6 offers driving thrills that few sedans can match -- and a V-10 heart that would be right at home in a Lamborghini.
