    German Weapons

    Which is your weapon of choice for these vehicles? All things considered...power, comfort etc
    Mercedes E63
    BMW M5
    Audi S6
    Jaguar XJ Super V8

    Clearly the jag is not german but its worthy

    Dang I'm lost between the S6 and M5 both get the juices moving . . . . .M5, because I test drove one, but S6 extremely close behind because I only saw one and never sat in one.
    I'm a real boy!

    The E55 is now the E63, so maybe you should change that - the old supercharged 5.4L V8 has been replaced by a 6.2L naturally aspirated V8. Theres a bit of a power hike, but not as much torque. With the new engine comes a new 7-speed auto, which apparently is good. The E63 also gets a faster steering rack from the CLS.

    The M5 is has a great engine, but its too complicated, and apparently its handling is a bit.....ahem...lairy on the limit (like...11/10ths driving). Obviously, I wouldnt know for sure

    Unfortunately, I know very little about the Jag - something about an aluminuim chassis, and a 4.2L 400hp V8 - but thats about all. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'd take the Audi S6 - it just looks fantastic, has that great Gallardo-based V10.

    However, if I had the money, I'd wait for the new RS6.....apparently its going to get 600hp

    S6 please

    Saw one the other day. I was very taken by the 10 LEDs in the front bodykit. Looks awesome!

    Oh, and 420bhp isn't so bad either

    CLS63 over any of them, but it'd have to be the E63...

    I'm with Sam on this one. Audi S6's take my pic any day. M6 sounds as rough as a bag of rusty nails at tick over and is a BMW, the Jag is for old people, Mecedes is for the mid life crisis people. Plus I own the S6's sibling so blatently I'm BIASED!! And it's be a silver S6 for me too. Thank you very much

    I just don't like BMWs nowadays they've gotten fat and technologified.

    Up until the E46 3-Series, I liked them. After that... no

    The Jaguar ain't so bad. Particularly the quicker ones have you ever seen a black XJR from the previous generation?? They are badass!

    But we all know that Audi's rock. So S6 wins by default

    EDIT: In fact, can a mod add a poll, please?

    The S6 hmmmm its not exactly an equal comparison to the M5 seeing as the beemer is the top of the range while the S6 is one under.....

    So when the RS6 does come out thats what youll will compare and to what was said earlier on about it being 600bhp where did you get that insane figure?

    There's better cars, but probably the jag. The M5 is second, but it's a little too big...

    Once fanboyism infects you it impares all your judgement.
    It's like being drunk, you lack common sense and everyone laughs at you.

    Frankenfurter.

    (Will settle for tinned hot dog .. or M5 ... though it is unfair, as it should be the RS6 and not a norm S6)

    S6. I wish it came with a manual, but I'll live. The M5 looks too complicated, I never liked Jaguars, and same thing for the Mercedes.

    I just wish the RS6 came out sooner. Other than that, The S6 is stunning.
