    Alpina wheels are just exquisite. M wheels of the last 6 or 7 years have been ghastly.

    Finally an M car with awd 😍🔥
    Edit @4:05 😂👏👏 well said sir
    Which one is quicker 0-60? more than likely doing traffic light rips with a buddy than hitting laps at a local track

    bought one, very fast! left a lot of boy racers miles behind ,very happy with that, wonderful car to drive. BUT ....after a few months l looked at it and thought.....wish i had bought a car with looks! max speed is 70 mph. yes acceleration is great and very handy. But in a traffic jam the m5 is such a boring looking four seat saloon car. sold it . may buy a lotus, maser or ?.

    I think making the new BMW M5 4 wheel drive is perhaps a mistake. It needs to be a pure rear wheel drive car.
    Alpina is a bit of a cult brand, but they do make some excellent cars.

    • Denzi DK

      @Markulator Sweet as you become insulting, but good to know that you don't get what philosophy Alpina has. Then Alpina is just a tuner for you although it is not.

    • Markulator
      Markulator Day ago

      Denzi DK I know everything that you have told me already. You just don’t want to listen. I don’t care about a plaque or a vin number, in essence what car is an Alpina? It is a BMW with changed characteristics. I can go and buy a VW right now, modify it and call it whatever, still remains a VW in essence. If you still disagree with me, then there is nothing that I can do that will convince you, so just mind your own business you Alpina loving bastards.

    • Denzi DK
      Denzi DK Day ago

      @Markulator Alpina does not tune or copy BMWs. The engineering and the production of high-end automobiles based on BMW models is the core of our business. Every year, between 1,200 and 1,700 automobiles leave the manufacturing plant, destined for the whole world. Every single BMW ALPINA is fitted with its individual production plaque in the interior along with an ALPINA specific VIN, which classifies the car as a product made by an officially registered automotive manufacturer.

    • Markulator
      Markulator Day ago

      Denzi DK OK. It's a car brand that either, copies BMWs, or they tune BMWs.

    The Alpina was 1.6 seconds slower... I appreciate in motorsport that's the difference between winning and losing but, otherwise, if you actually give a flying fuck, you need to rethink your life.

      @Refiloe he does yes, but only because Jeremy doesn't have time to do it all for the camera, he can in-fact drift quite well. But yes Chris Harris is a step above, love his reviews of old 80-90s m cars

      @Mr. Kohy In his prime perhaps, yes. However, all his shots are taken from just straight line driving of just taking a normal turn. There are no shots of him performing the drifts from inside the car. If you watch any Chris Harris vids you will know what I'm talking about

      ​@Andrew I have thousands of cars now, all the same, a rather hideous two-tone, but I have a driver waiting in each one. It's a good deal, though, I just call up the nearest one and pay for my time being driven from place to place each time. Haha
      I actually live in a country now where the tax on new cars is roughly 250%, and very few old cars due to history getting in the way. Plus no roads worth driving at speed unless a form of dental repair. Sadly, I am thus carless. If I do get something it will have to lean more toward comfort than the zippy little yellow SWB 250 of my dreams.

    Alpina is the reason Mercedes teamed up with AMG. They both have the same principles - to be a subtle smoother M car.

    • D. B. Cooper
      D. B. Cooper 5 months ago

      @1990Thunderbolt Daimler owns AMG now, they didn't use to though.
      BMW created BMW M.
      AMG is still a separate company following their own philosophy. Much like Alpina.
      That's why we have both Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG names

      @1990Thunderbolt No. Mercedes-AMG GmbH is its own company. Just like Alpina is to BMW.

    For those of you who have never owned an M car before, let me tell you cannot use it for daily driving. It wears you out. My friends are in their late 20s and traded in their M3s for civilized, luxury barges such as the Audi S5. The cars are fine tuned for the race track - and everyday isnt a track day. The tires, suspension setup, and transmission are so harsh they rid of it and did not recommend.
    So, Alpina it is. You'll know.

    The Alpina is not a diesel ?! What's the point of it then. The Alpina cars must be the fastest cars that diesel can be, not a petrol alternative of the ordinary 5 series !!!
