    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Navi, parking sensors, bluetooth, climate control, smart key, push to start button, premium sound, alcantara headliner, xenon lights that move with the steering, m button.

    Cons: SMG can be tricky and needs improvement. Expensive to maintain.

    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

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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??

    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.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fast and comfortable

    Cons: It sits low, lower than corvettes, Gas, and maintenance.

    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.

    Pros: acceleration speed 320 km/h

    Cons: filling up on gas tank

    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.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: ///M Power

    Cons: None
