2001 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Amazing power, yet very easy to handle. Ultimate luxury 4dr family car, very reliable, gas mileage is ok, what else do you expect? This really is a everyday drive to work/shop/trip car. Best of the e39 and my personal opinion, best bmw ever made. It does require oil adds between the 5k oil changes, since it is a very high compression engine. Don't care too much for the new shape or the interior, plus i enjoy changing gears myself. Best car i have ever owned in every manner. This is going to become a classic! If you can afford it, buy it! Don't compromise.


Best Features

The Sport Mode! Very smooth Power Band, Tight Gear shifts, Suede Headliner, Two Tone Nappa Leather, Auto Rear Power Shade


Worst Features

Take out the cupholders, period. There really is no more improvements.

2001 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

One word describes the difference between this car and all the rest, CLASS, because it is in it's own. Interior design, comfort, safety, reliability.


Best Features

Engine, Transmission (6gears), suspension, interior design and color options for leather, visibility, and popularity are all my favorites. It's a crowd pleaser to those who know what it is.


Worst Features

Make a 6 speed Tiptronic option, automatic and manual with that extra gear.

2001 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

There are truely no substitues for this machine. It is a CLASSIC which can now start appreciating in value now BMW has stopped building this model, and the upcoming new model seems to be a couple steps backwards in styling. This is a car you can drive to work everyday and don't have to have a Porsche or a Ferrari in your garage for your weekend driving pleasures. It truely is a drivers' car rather than for someone seeking for a shallow status. Certainly not for someone who likes automatics!


Best Features

An awesome engine that performs/sounds/looks like it will last forever. Solid feel that immediately tells you you're in a BMW. This is what BMW is all about.


Worst Features

This car is not about the cupholders!!! Let BMW outsource that job to the Mercedes designers and enigineers.
