    in the cts-v vs m5 thread I talked about an interesting formula that I got from Steve Dinan. In any event, I also said I would post a video showing Steve's M5 w/ the $30,000 S2 package completely and utterly destroying my stock M5.

    I don't want to get the other thread too off track, so here it is.

    Picture of Steve in front of his S2 (red) and my stock M5 (blue)

    Edited video of the S2 destroying my M5 :o

    right click, save as
    http://www.employees.org/~beetle/ot/s2.WMV

    the full version of the video can be found on the m5 board (i got rid of some of the interviews and other misc stuff).
