This vehicle outshines virtually every other automakers efforts! Put another way, this is as good as it gets. Bought my M5 in 2004 with 28k miles and have enjoyed the performance, handling and build quality. This is my 3rd BMW and will only buy the M series from now on.No flash, just pure substance. The car is rock solid and the engine is bulletproof. There aren't enough superlatives to say how wonderfully delicious this iteration of the 5series is. THE BEST BMW YOU COULD OWN.
M5's 5.0 liter V-8(400 hp) engine. This powerplant was engine of the year (Wards) and still today is state of the art., Razor sharp handling, and the awesome burble of the exhaust system. This isn't hyperbole, people; just the purest example of the ULTIMATE DRIVING EXPERIENCE in a 4dr, 5 passenger sedan.
Cup holders are an afterthought, though are easy to replace.
