Blah — drove this car, pretty advanced gearbox SMG shifts quite well but jerky driving in traffic. power was good but revs had to be up, throttle response wasnt quite like the e39 m5 but was deffinately faster. electric seat bolsters are cool but really doesnt seem to do much for my frame. ride is quite firm but understandable for a sedan of this caliber. The verdict? deffinately one of the fastest sedans out there with 507 hp V10 engine but i can get more car for 150 grand

Pros: read review

Cons: read review

The Ultimate Driving Machine — What can one say about a V10 M5...the car is truly magnificent and almost a perfect car except for the fact it gets about 12MPG. I cant find one other thing that I could complain about except for the older I-Drive is difficult to use perhaps..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: POWER POWER AND MORE POWER!!!!

Cons: Literally does not miss a gas station

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.

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

Pros: Performance & Styling

Cons: Fuel mileage

Ueber Family Car — Having some issues with SMG, sometimes pauses from 2nd to 3rd in high revs, actually shows traction control sign when it pauses, so I think it's waiting for the revs to come down, but they are never in the RED.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, very fast

Cons: Horrible gas mileage, but that's the trade-off for a V10 ueber-car

RWD was a joke. You either took traction control off and went sideways off the line of you left it on and had no pedal. Also the thing burned oil so that I had to refill every 2 months

Very Fast, Very Sporty, Handles Awesome, And You Can Carry 4 Passengers. By ecos1

In my opinion still the best looking M5 out there. The new ones are very nice without a doubt, but the E39 is still the king. The car will outperform many sports cars out there, even the newer models.... Read More
