Pros

Looks, Engine, Practicality

Cons

Fuel Consumption. Can get Unwanted attention with our aftermarket exhaust

Family Rocket — 400 hp. 5 seater. 6 speed. yea, even though she is 7 years old there isnt a day that goes by where the M5 dosent amaze me. Weve pulled bikes a mustang cobra and even a corvette. while having the ability to take 5 people. Hell if I learn to drive stick over the summer I'll bring it to school next year and I'll show you guys what Im talking about. Its one of the few practical fast cars, which makes it that much better than anything else out there.

Pros

Great care for those who need the space

Cons

16mpg...

Great Car For Giving People Lifts... — Large car that feels much more wieldy than it should. Excellent handling with oversteer on demand if required (and the traction control can be switched off). Does tend to spin the rear wheels easily if provoked.

Everyone Who Is Anyone Must Experience The M5 By Brad

I Hated Selling It, And I Will Have Another! Lol By Jonathon

I loved this car's split personality, and it's ability to be docile one minute, and a monster, the next, but it was a bit expensive to replace engine parts. Driving this car was an experience that can... Read More
