    Tesla Model S vs BMW M5

    I own a '13 BMW M5. I test drove the Tesla Model S today. It is a fine car but for the P85+ model with most options you clock in at around 110k after federal credit. You can get a '14 BMW M5 for the same money or less. Let me tell you as an owner and prospective Tesla Model S buyer that the BMW M5 is alot more car for the money than the Model S.

    If you are going to drive just one sedan I could not understand why you would buy a Model S over an M5 unless you just love the novelty of "owning an electric only" car. The M is more luxurious, better ride, faster 0 to anything, first class technology packages. I was looking at the S as another car for m collection and could possibly still consider it but if I had to choose just one it is no contest.

    If you are a Model S buyer go drive the new BMW M5. I guarantee unless you MUST have electric power for whatever reason (green, novelty, etc) there is no way you will buy the Model S over the M5. The difference is that much more dramatic. The fit, finish, comfort of the M5 is well above the Model S.

    Not saying the Model S is poor or of low quality. It appears to have a good quality but can't compare. Sorry.
