Can’t believe they went there.
Whenever you preface a comparison to the Accord with, “And, to be fair, the M5 Comp is very fast, mighty luxurious, and extremely well put-together,” you can no longer really compare it to an Accord.

I own both an F90 M5C and an e39 M5. They’re both fun in their own way. The e39 is nimble, raw, and engaging. The F90 is fast as shit and grippy around twisties, but will go sideways with little to no effort when you want it to
