My partner and I both liked the M5 much better.
Couldn't believe how "planted" it fealt, much more power.

The M4 had us leaning a bit more.

Also like the M3 Competition from the previous years more than the M4
My group, including the instructor all felt the M5 didn't belong on COTA. It's certainly has plenty of get up and go, but once the corners came, it felt large and heavy tackling those. Brakes were disappointing. You could tell if you were following an M5 coming in for a hard stop; rear end got very squirrelly. The instructor actually warned us of this: get the M5 as straight as possible before braking.

This one, from to two years ago, was my favorite:
