Glad he likes it though.

A very exciting video and a confirmation of the great driving dynamics of the M5 CS! ✌

The best thing about that video is Chris Harris' enthusiasm while driving the M5CS. It was infectious and had me laughing along...

Nice to finally see an Audi be able to oversteer like that.

Wish he was a little more detailed about how the M5CS drives but looks like he a good time behind the wheel which is a good showing.

I've driven the comp m5 and m8 on the track, and no doubt fast, that's all I got from them, fast. They are huge in size, insulate you from so much of what going on, and just turn driving into mash the throttle and steer. I found no enjoyment from it really. M2, different story.

I get it that cars are getting bigger, but I was not impressed.

The current M5 is starting to show its age, unfortunately.

That e-tron GT is gorgeous.

That e-tron GT might show the M5cs a thing or two

Enjoy this generation M5 while it lasts

Times are definitely changing

If your gonna use another platform/vehicle may as well get it from the best

The upcoming Audi A6 E-Tron and Q6 E-Tron will also be based on Porsche's upcoming EV Platform, I see great things for Audi's future, the more Porsche platforms the better!

It's just a matter of time before Lamborghini uses an EV platform from the mothership.

Agreed. I got the chance to see an E-Tron in person recently and it is absolutely stunning.

IMO the F90 really wasn't that much of a step forward compared to the F10 - which has dated it very quickly. This is especially true compared to what Mercedes did with the more revolutionary new shape E-class and the old one.

These are my two dream cars; I am glad to have 90% of one

I really would like to get the Audi as my 2nd car but the Missus has said no f'ing way. I need to choose one of them.

With the few reviews of the M5 CS that I have seen they have all been on track. The M5 for many is a daily saloon car, and I wonder how this car with its firm suspension and rigid sports bucket seats will feel on a regular city drive around town? For the few people in Europe who are just getting their M5 CS deliveries could you give a review of the daily driving of this car outside the motorway. Thx
