    M5 and GTRs my fav, plus Chris Harris 100 times better than those cunts from Top Gear.

  2. Ok. This guy is a hack

  3. dasgtr says:

    Relax. Take a deep breath. Stop complaining over which car is better for this or that reason. Realize that these cars were built to very different philosophies. One is a quietly styled executive super sedan straight from the factory. The other is a racing derived sports coupe with a vast tuning industry built behind it.
    I'll gladly take both of them.

    BMW .. any day a lot more classy too

  6. nom chompsky says:

    5 years later he's saying exactly the same thing about the new GTR!

  7. PetrolZone says:

    I'm so jealous of your car control Chris!

  8. Hwoarang121 says:

    I would take the GTR over any BMW.

  9. Ian Tomlin says:

    It always makes me laugh when car journalists say how the German plastic interior is so much more luxurious than the Japanese plastic. They are both just plastic mate! No luxury there! Why? These aint luxury cars! The Nissan will cost a lot more to make because its so much more complicated and better engineered than the BMW.

  10. Alex Alex says:

    fuck off..the M5 is much better

  11. This was released 5 years ago ._.

  12. festeradamz says:

    ill stick with the v10 thanks

  13. actually rewatching this after so many years I realized for the first time he didn't turn esp off lol
    just r mode

  14. Jack Hobbs says:

    GT-R for me no doubt.

  15. Doctor Drift says:

    2 horrible shit boxes

  16. VTX00128 says:

    BMW = V2
    GTR = Cruise missile

  17. Phillz says:

    Chris we want you back…sincerely,



  18. Chris, you wear some shit jumpers

  19. Apotheosis says:

    lol i see this dope ass intro, dope ass music waiting for greatness, instead its this silly sounding european, kind of killed the video, dope car though.

  20. The M5 has always been a great drivers car with near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, the best of the lot in my opinion was the E38 hand built car with the 3.8 340bhp version.These days M5s are brutes on the road while maintaining a comfortable 4s up heading down to the coast for the weekend. The GTR on the other hand as we all know, is an entirely different machine, with a multi-billion dollar tuning industry behind it the GTR remains unbeatable in real world performance needs.

  21. Av63PNT0 says:

    Watching this guys excitement while driving these cars and explaining how exhilarating it is awesome

  22. Outro music?

  23. MotoBoy says:

    GTR for me. BMW lost it's soul a long time ago

  24. Hendra Di says:

    M5 all the way!

  25. skievl23 says:

    skip to 8:00 to see drifting

  26. I would take both. A M5 first for everyday use and the GT-R for weekends on the track and dragracing.

  27. I have f10 M5 ……… what a car so much power so much comfort and fantastic handling!!! it does everything so well forget AMG,AUDI RS , JAG XFR yes these cars are all awesome and brilliant and are great cars that would please anyone …. but there not the orginal all great but copys of the m5 ….god we are spoilt for choice these days

  28. how could anyone under 80 choose that horrible German car over a GTR??

  29. Peter Baker says:

    At 8.17 Chris is putting the traction control in race mode, not switching the traction control off. It explains why at 9.12 he says he is fighting the systems while trying to drift. Other than that an excellent video.

  30. Sean Hamre says:

    bmw all day im not paying 100k for a nissan to be uncomfortable and did i mention its a nissan. get a maxium for 28k if you want a nissan and add twin turbo lol not the same but almost

  31. SMRIDER100 says:

    they both can fit 4 people.. yeah right try and sit on the back seat of a gtr LMAO

  32. If you have a family, M5.

  33. The M5 is faster (not off the line obviously), more comfortable and it is 2 cars in one. It can be used daily, for shopping, fitting 4 people comfortably (even at high speeds), taking kids to school, going on long journeys. It can also be a MONSTER with the touch of a button. It's quick, fun, comfortable, sensible, handles well, performs well and that's why it's the car I would pick.

  34. I wonder why the M5 sounds so bland, I've heard the exhaust of the older X6M and it sounded great
