Bmw M5 — Excellent car overall. The performance is fantastic. It accelerates smoothly and strongly. The build quality is decent for the most part. It has needed some work recently (new valve cover seals, a/c blower motor) and also the cupholders are worthless, but overall, it's about what you would expect from a German car. The gas mileage isn't great (around 16-18mpg on average), and the maintenance is expensive (but infrequent luckily). However, it's an absolute blast to drive, and there isn't much that comes close to it.

Pros

Fast, comfortable, with a slick six speed. Simply the Ultimate Driving Machine

Cons

Sucks gas, and the 10w _60 oil makes sure that nothing you do to this car is cheap

The Ultimate Driving Machine — You simply cant have more fun that driving the e39 m5. It can be tuned to your liking and will spank just about every car out there without them knowing what hit them. The cabin is sumptuous, the six speed and handling create confidence. This is the BMW you drive when you want the Ultimate Driving Machine.

Pros

Excellent performance for a 4 door saloon.

Cons

Miantenance...parts are expensive.

Fun & Great Handling Just Dont Own One That Isnt Well Maintained. — While not the fastest sedan by todays standards it will still outperform 95% of the cars on the road today after a decade. A very civilized car that does almost everything well however you need to keep up on the maintenance. Cant wait to drive the 2012 M5.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Good — BMW m5 E39 was the fastest saloon car in the world when it first came out in 1998 u can buy one for around 6k-15k and they are very fast and entertaining 400bhp 4.9liter engine what pulls insanely quick and will get to 0-60mph in 4.8secounds top speed electronicly limited to 155mph (187 with out the speed limiter) m button what sharpens up the throttle and gear responce and gear change quickness. loads of technology in the car like how much power you want to use sat nav 5inch TV screens etc.

2000 Bmw M5 — the car is amazing. with a top speed of 315km/h being pumped out of a non-turbo V8 engine., suade roof liner, and fully loaded leather seats and dash. the price tag aint so bad either. being that it is a 2000 the price has come right down to anywhere from 21,000-35,000. which is pretty cheap for an entry level super car

Fantastic — the best car ever made, it is so fast not many cars can keep up with it wen its been de ristricted. very well buit. very refiend, smooth quiet . its more like a luxery family super car. fantastic to drive ( which bmw isnt ) once you drive a m5 there is nothing that can compair. it is legendery. you can sit doing 120mph. with 2 fingers on the wheel. you know exactley whats going on with the car, and there is no drama. many times i drive the long way home. just to drive it. and some times i find my self just going out in the car, just to drive i dont go anywere i just go for a drive. the 5 series bimmer has been rated as the best car in the world, many critics have all said the same. but its not all great. living in the uk. it is expensive on the petrol. but worth every penny. keep away from dealerships when it comes to servicing. they will pull your pants down when things do go wrong it is expensive to fix,but to be fair they dont go wrong often. if your gonna buy a second hand bimmer you cant go wrong with a 5 series. as a car and a machine. there isnt anything i can think of that is better to drive or live with. if you buy one it will become part of your family.
