No compromise required!
By allan2 on
2000 BMW M5 4dr Sedan
I can't spend enough time in this car.
It's power, handling, flexibility and
creature comforts, all with seating for
5, are just not available anywhere
else. (Sorry MB E55) The engine is
rock solid, although the ECU is a
little finicky, reporting errors fairly
regularly, but my local dealer has been
outstanding in fixing any issues under
warranty AND providing a no charge
rental. I very much like the stealth
nature of this car. Only true car nuts
recognize it, but with tires wider than
the 540's, and a slighly lower
suspension, it looks taut and forboding
without screaming out that fact.
Scary fast engine and neutral handling
The DSC (traction control is too
intrusive, especially on twisty roads.
It looks like BMW has addressed this on
the new Z4, according the review herein.
