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


Review

The 2002 BMW M5 is perfect for the family person in need of 5 seats but who quitely longs for a 2 seat screamer like an 911 turbo. The only knock I have on the car is that it does things almost two effortlessly. The steering is a touch light and you are insulated to some degree from its raw power by its size. Simply the best of the best sedans.


Best Features

Life of luxury wrapped into a hot rod.


Worst Features

A few more horses could not hurt. I would also like more road-feel in the steering department.

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


Review

Does everything well; blisteringly fast, yet civilized and very comfortable. V8 toque with a poweband wide enough to let you start off in 6th gear if you want to. "Fun to drive" just doesn't get any better. Friendly to the traffic cops too.


Best Features

400 horsepower in a four door sedan. the BMW lover's favorite BMW.


Worst Features

Better cupholders. Automatic all- window opening feature on remote needs to work to also do the reverse. Make the spedo accurte, not 4% over.

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!!


Best 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.


Worst Features

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 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Best car I have ever owned.


Best Features

Engine, handling, brakes, design.


Worst Features

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.

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!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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!
