The AMG will always rank superbly in my book. The new V is right up there though. The magnetic ride control and handling is incredible. I'm looking forward to taking it to the track this summer and see what it can really do. It's nice not having high maintenance costs. Haha! AMG's are stupid expensive to maintain. My only complaint about the V is the poorly done infotainment system. It sucks, but is slowly growing on me. The perfect car, AMG chassis, engine and exhaust, BMW's M drivetrain and ATS-V's mag ride, suspension and steering. How does the M3 and M4 compare to the new ATS-V? BMW has owned this class of car since the 80's.
