2002 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Next best previously owned car was a 91- 300Z Turbo; great car, but no comparison to the M5. The M5 Driving Experience in SC really helped to learn about controlling THE BEAST. Perfect choice for the family, 4-doors, luxury, safety, luggage (split-folddown seats) and daily drive. Better choice for me when I have a need for speed!!


Favorite Features

DSC (lifesaver), Power, performance, handling, braking, silky-smoothness, DSP-stereo, NAV system, stealth and OHHHH that SOUND OF THE V8 RUMBLE!! It really freaks people out, not coming from an American muscle care.


Suggested Improvements

Too Pricey. Drinks oil. Electronics- better integration of the phone & computer/stereo system--improve the antenna boost; Add a key-pad for fast dialing of the phone, without removal from the cradle. NOTHING ELSE!

2002 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Best car I have ever owned.


Favorite Features

Engine, handling, brakes, design.


Suggested Improvements

the cup holders are worthless. Trunk is to small. When will bmw put in a in dash CD changer? This will free up some space in the trunk. Also the Navigation system could be easier to use.

2002 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is my second M5. Had the 2000, it was hot stiff and strong. The new model seems faster and is a dream to drive. The improvements were minor on the surface. The hardest to believe is that the 2002 is a vastly improved version of the original. the best of the best!


Favorite Features

Its hot as hell and kicks ass. The police let it go because it is so smooth the police are mezmerized.


Suggested Improvements

The cluch cannot handle all the power all the time. More power. The new M5 needs atleast 550 hp and 200 hundred pounds less weight to trounce all the new wantabees!

Review

This is the car for people who like to drive and don't have any desire to impress anyone, with the exception of young car enthusiasts who when you pass them will invariably give you the "thumbs up" and not "the finger". Everyone else will wonder how your grandmother's car can go so fast around corners.


Favorite Features

Speed, safety, control, quality.


Suggested Improvements

Interactive radio and navigation conrols could be simpler, How about a regular dial to turn to get the next station without having to fumble through a menu?
