1993 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan


This is one of those great motor cars that as soon as you drive the first mile you can sense it's motorsport background. Free-reving engine, tight steering and suspension, sport seats, and the deep exhaust note all tell you this is something special. It is not cheap to own - despite being simple in design by today's standards, the car has a number of very advanced features that are great when they work, but when they don't, the cost to repair them can be high. For example, this car has the Nurburgring suspension - with its dynamic dampering system it sense cornering loads and adjust the shocks to compensate - cost of replacement about $4000.

Best Features

Engine, interior, classic styling. Build quality is the best I have ever see - better than Mercedes.

Worst Features

Maybe the car could lose about 500 pounds. Long throw on transmission and notchy feel when shifting. Longer throw than a Porsche. Needs a short shift.
