It is, almost. The anomalous M5 Touring is M-division chalk to the M6 convertible's cheese. Both have the same 500bhp V10, yet that the M5 looks absolutely stunning and completely purposeful only serves to emphasise the M6's excesses. But the touring is not perfect, suffering from exactly the same technical frustrations as its saloon namesake, namely the mind-boggling array of set-up choices available.
Yes, but you can have too much of a good thing: three damper settings; traction control that switches between on, off and not-quite-off M mode; three seat settings which squeeze you into the chair ever more aggressively; and a power button to sharpen throttle response and unleash all 500bhp.

RE: BMW M5 Touring CAR review
The big wheels suit the estate body better than the saloon.
