Bmw M5 Interlagos Blue — Great car - would highly recommend but not for an everyday driver. Excellent handling, extremely responsive and feels like a much smaller car when you put it through its paces. Can easily get out from underneath you with all of the power it has.

M5 Review — This car is amazing. Can't beat the looks and performance. Stebro exhaust and 20" wheels make it look and sound mean! No complaints other than rear wheel drive and not all wheel drive like im used to with audi quattro.

Fantastic — The BEST car I have driven to date. The only car that I go numb when driving due to the acceleration. That 5.0 V10 is awesome!

Fast Four-door Luxury. — So far, the car is stock. Black on black M5. Performs like a beast, currently plan on: ECU power pulley system exhaust cosmetics (currently have 15% tint, plan on blacking out front grill). The car is a lot of fun, and with mods it can only get better.

M5 — There is nothing to disslike on this car! Absolutely nothing! Performance, top speed, acceleration, braking, styling, comfor, 5 seets, ryms 21`... It is the best, and the fastest street licenced BMW ever! You will whatch every other car in your rear view mirror, ofcourse if yo are doing 300, but if your doing 360 what the top speed is, you wont see any thing behind you acept the tarmac that you are on :)

Bmw M5 — The car was amazing to drive. There is no substitute for the V-10. The car fairly easy to drive and the response was phenomenal. It is a very fun car to drive; handles like a sports car with the size of a full sedan. The cost, on the other hand, is not so nice and fun. The MSRP for that particular M5 was priced at $95,000. At some point, the following thought crosses your mind:" is a car really worth over $100,000?" I leave that up to you.

2008 Bmw M5 — Awesome speed, power, comfort, and luxury. Beautiful appointments and features for the long or short trip. Reliable, safe, and provides loads of fun. Last but not least, maintenance id FREE! Oh, did I forget that the M5 comes equipped with 507HP!

2008 M5 — I still had 3 months left on my '06 Audi A8 lease, but Niello BMW in Sacramento made me an offer I simply could not refuse! This car is loaded and handles like no other 4-door sedan. The mileage is atrocious, but everything else makes this bat mobile the car I always wanted :-)
