Very similar situation to myself a few years back. I had a yearning for a big engine, comfy German tank.

I looked at the V10 M5/M6 but ultimately was put off by the SMG box and the potential for huge costs. Sounds like quite a high maintenance set up.

I ended up with my CLS63. Ok so it's got a 7 speed torque converter gearbox but it's still quicker than the average manual gear change, plus it has paddles so you can be in the right gear at the right time. Overall very pleased although I agree the M5/M6 of that era still looks great.
