The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
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 STS is middle-of-the-pack in many respects, but it stands out as Cadillac’s technology flagship.
