    Test drove one yesterday. On the highway. Did a few pulls from 60-70 to about 110. Are there any faster cars that are faster than this on the highway? This thing was fucking fast. :eek:

    Yea, I know they're pieces of shit. Good thing I didn't get one. The is there anything faster was kind of like a rhetorical question. But in all seriousness, is there an autmatic 4 door that is faster for under 100k?

    What's bad about them? Just curious...'cause new car season is approaching...and I'm having a hard time deciding what to seriously look at.

    I have a 01 CL-Type S, but am looking for something w/ a bit more quality. From my past experience w/ this Acura, I'm nervous about getting a new one and encountering the same fit&finish problems.

    but still for under 100k i think the only car that is faster then that would be the new M5 when it comes out

    The current E55 is grossly underrated. Dyno runs show they're closer to 520 horsepower than 469.

    I highly doubt the e60 m5 is faster or even close to say the least(as far as on a roll). I mean the the torque numbers should show this as well.

    guess we just have to wait untill it comes out so they can match them up on the track

    I'm not biased, but I think the e55 is going to still be faster than the new m5. Easier to modify as well. And... I heard that the e55 can out accelerate an enzo on the highway. :dunno:

    I agree, I guess I should'nt have jumped to conclusions. I have driven my friends amg and the thing has godly power on tap and it'll be a good comparo when the two go at it. I just think the e55, with its set up will be faster.

    enzo is more aerodynamic, lighter, and more powerful
