    E39 M5's are already on the rise, I think the next neo-classic will be a sorted E9X. CF roof coupes being the most valuable.

    Personally I'd love a sedan. The rod bearings and valve actuators don't worry me. It's expensive, but a well documented pattern failure.
    Otherwise, it's the last N/A M3, and one of the last manual cars. They will definitely be worth something.

      1LE SS is so much faster, and handles so good. It's really fantastic.
      It's just got GM plastic interior, which isn't terrible, and terrible rear view. All minor complaints compared to raw LS powah!

        Worth it for the engine note alone.

          First gen C63s can now regularly be had for less than an E39 M5. Do those cheapie MBs have deferred maintenance/are ready for a major failure, definitely.

            Call me a Hotboi but I think these cars look really great with some factory BMW areo parts from there race cars. M235ir wing and a GTS front lip ($$$) also BBS E88 are very period for these cars and look insane.

              You'd be surprised, but an e39 feels way nimbler than the e9x

              plus more torque, which totally lacks in the e9x. But, the 100hp per litre is impressive.

              I would also opt for the e39.

                  I like E92 M3s a lot, the high revving NA V8 just does it for me. But they are also kinda weird. From certain angles they look great, from others they look kinda off, like the red one with the spoiler above. It just looks weird from the door handles back, the tall quarter panel and high trunkline make the rear wheel and arch look small. There are plenty of pictures where they just look bad and I think it's down to them looking slab sided. They also do not feel as fast as other mid 12s cars because of the aforementioned lack of torque.

                  I'd have the SS 1LE, terrible rear visibility be damned. It's only more expensive until the E92 M3 decides to have some expensive problems, which it will. The Camaro will no doubt be a cheaper car to own long term in addition to its massive performance advantage. Though there's also something else around that price range which is just better; C6 Z06.

                  For me it's the widebody hellcat charger. If I'm going going big and heavy, I'm going big and heavy. 4,586lbs and I could not care less about that number in this case because it is the best looking sedan on the market and it is just an overall nutty car. Dodge had me disappointed with how portly and slow the challenger was, then they came out with the Hellcats and I get it, and I'm all for it. Big power to go with the aggressive look, but with no teutonic BS like impossibly cramped hot V engines or engine bearings that wear out in the time it takes some cars to go through a set of brake pads.

                    Melon approved. Same color as my GMC, so I can share a touch-up pen.

                      $50k Dodge?... Im good. If my ONLY goal was the fastest sedan this would be a smart buy except that it still gets beat by a Tesla sooo... losing that battle too. I would never get a Tesla though

                      At least with a NA Benz V8 or BMW you are sitting in a nice cabin

                      There must be something weird with me because Im not chasing the car thats the fastest, I need something that puts a smile on my face. Hell, my C350 was fast enough to get me into trouble and it had less than 300bhp...

                      Someone send help, I think somethings wrong with me.

                        You can get in to trouble with 62hp. It's not so much about the car as it is about the driver. Also, numbers are just that, and they're pretty meaningless if the car is unappealing.

                          You know what else is a awesome car IMO

                          I saw one of these last night.

                            I've sat inside a ZL1 ILe. Very nice car the interior is 10x better than what I expected. The recaros are so stiff and everything is solid. I just don't like the rear visibility.

                                As a bonus, most people paying attention seem to think it's a cop car, so they move aside.

                                Bummer, but bound to happen, and I'm sure we'll see an across the board markup.
