4 years ago the M5 would have been the obvious choice but the new E63 is much better looking than the current M5 and as far as I have read just as capable performance-wise. The M5 does have that no cost 6-speed which I prefer over anything else but I have also read that if you order the stick and clutch transmission the stability control can never be entirely turned off (making the SMG the better choice if you want an M5).

Yeah, BMW did that so you can't launch the car properly. Where's the fun in that?

Is there a better choice when ordering a M5...

They did that for a reason; the engineers found that allowing you to launch the car with a 6 speed with the Traction Control off would lead to a screwed-up engine/transmission in the future.

And the 'future' wasn't far enough for the warranty to expire.
