    Insideline compares the 2011 F10 550i to the 2011 Infiniti M56

    Surprisingly, the M56 puts up a pretty good fight and Insideline criticizes the new 5 series as being too soft and removed without the driver connection BMW's are known for. We have been hearing this a lot about the new 5 series. They still pick the 550i over the Infiniti but say the 5 series has slipped. We wish they gave us the full 1/4 mile numbers from the strip as well.

    Yup, that is exactly what my buddy said when he finally got to test drive one. He had planned on replacing his E90 M3 with a 550i, but he quickly changed his mind.

    Pretty disappointing honestly, BMW is losing its edge.
