    fully loaded, sport package, M wheels, everything. The only thing I can think of is that for about the same price I can get a cls550.

    Yes, but the sport package and 19"s really help it out.

    535i or m5. do you really want to drive the poor man's m5?

    i think 535i can be found with a 6spd tranny, but i'm not sure

    The poor mans m5 is 70k?

    If you've driven both a 550 and a 535, you wouldn't say that.

    535 + intake exhaust headers and k-pro > 550

    it's a figurative speech, but you get my point

    You might be able to find a used current gen M5 for a little more than that.

    I'd rather look for a slightly used M5, if possible to find for the same price...

    I can't. They're fantastic vehicles. I drove one and it just made me want to keep cruising all around Long Island.

    Because it's not an M5. If that's too expensive, then the 550i is perfect.
