I Love It And Wouldn't Get Rid Of It. — Best sedan in the world that got it all. Super handling and power with m. Can personally choose which setting of suspension and transmission you want. With all the luxury features and 500+ hp, this is the most luxurious and most powerful car on the planet.

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.

Beast Mode — I love everything especially the sound. The car looks amazing and is a treat to drive, it is my daily driver and has been issue free. The leather is plush and the power is plentiful oh and it fits my whole family and groceries.

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!

Pros

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.

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.

Amazing Speed — really comfortable. Build quality is amazing never needed repairs. It was extremely comfortable and looked rly nice although it was heavy. The milage wasnt very good but who cares if you're buying a BMW. I dont know if its fun to drive as my father drove it. I would recommend this car to every1.
