Simply The Best — A true person in engineering, quality is top notch and performance simply cannot be beat. The ///M V10 revs to a stratospherically high 8250 RPMs. And it is an absolute blast to drive, the 7 speed SMG gearbox is phenomenal.

E60 M5 — - Performance: Huge amounts of power: 507hp! 5Litre v10. Yes, it is a monster! Neck breaking acceleration. - Build quality: It hasn't needed any repairs. BMW quality. Only thing was that the leather creaked a bit when turning, but you couldn't really even hear it! - Appearance: Very nice designing, both interior and exterior. Sportish, like it should be. - Cost of Ownership: Expensive car in any way. You have to be rich to drive this. Spends around 18l/100km. - Fun factor: This car is fun to drive! M power!

This Car Is A Rocket!!!!!!!!!! — The BMW M5 is one of the fastest cars that I've rode in. It's just so quick and responsive. The 500 horsepower makes a different from the 2002 model with the 400. See I know this because my father owns one. When you are driving this car on the highway, you can call yourself cruising but you wouldn't actually know that you're doin about 110. And does it get lots of attention??? I don't think I have to answer that. It's an all around awesome car. I LOVE MY M5!!!!!!

Power Style Sophistication — It's the ultimate driving machine. BMW has outdone themselves again with this engineering marvel. The V10 power plant is something worthy of its own page in the record books, with heart pounding pleasure delivering performance. A kick in the seat of your pants done with class. The E50 M5 is in a league of its own.

A Dream Car — If there is no snow, this is my daily driver. People notice you on the road. It is powerful enough to scare your passenger. You feel the control always. M button makes me feel the king of the roads.I love it!

Awesome performance sedan that will fit a family or 4 large adults comfortably.  Insane brakes, power and sound the car will make you grin from ear to ear every time you drive it.

Cons

Too much fun, could get a ticket??

Love It — I have found the M5 to be a consumate sedan able to tool around town or scream down the road with 500 horses unleashed. Very comfortable and an insane highway car gobbling up miles with ease and luxury. I will miss the car once it finds its new home

2003 E39 M5, What A Sleeper! — What a great car! for 2003 the 400hp is just amazing how BMW uses the full power. have a few upgrades to push it to 420hp, this car keeps up with the new cars on the road today, it's a sleeper. kill list- 2012 SS Camaro, 2012 STI, WRX, and a 2006 Audi S6 V-8. car is well maintained and rarely hot roded, be prepared for $200.00 oil changes and $850.00 when you need new brakes. My suggestion get the brake upgrade kit on ebay, cheaper and drill and slotted rotors and brake pads for around $500.00 Also this car sits very low, very low! maintenance is very expensive, make sure you find a really reliable mechanic, if any one lives in the Denver area i have a great place that wont bend you over and tell you how it is.

Preformce //m — The 2009 BMW M5 comes with a massive V-10 engine, but power is far from the whole story, as the handling is superb.The 2009 BMW M5 is capable of giving you more power than you know what to do with, but that power comes at a high fuel cost.
