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


Review

Mild mannered for everyday, run of the mill driving, an absolute BEAST when you want it to be! By far the best car I've ever owned. Highly recommended!


Best Features

1. Engine -- No explanation necessary. 2. Suspension - Drives like a car half its size. 3. Exhaust Note - No explanation necessary here either.


Worst Features

1. Audio system. Subpar for this class of automobile. 2. Navigation system. Subar as well. Also, its CD rather than DVD-based.

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


Review

I keep telling myself this car is impractical, it's bad in the snow, I pay huge taxes to own it in Connecticut, it's not so great on gas, it's even had a couple of problems with the VANOS system (promptly and apologetically repaired while I drove a loaner 5-series), but in the end, Ican't part with her. This car is so nimble yet so rock-steady, so fluid yet so precise that I can't ever imagine being happy with another car. I'm just spoiled for life now.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the car's amazing ability to brake quickly from 130 to 65 ;-). This car seems practically invisible to cops. Maybe it's the Blue Water color.


Worst Features

Wish they would have left out the cupholders altogether. It's offensive to have these cheap little accoutrements in an otherwise so solid and elegant a vehicle. Navigation and radio systems are weird and hard to use. Guidance is darn near worthless.

Review

The BMW M5 is the best all around sport sedan on the market today. It's 400 horses, 6 speed, and on-board navigation is the definition of "Best."


Best Features

Automatic Ventilation, 400hp, thats all that needs to be said


Worst Features

6 speed automatic (like the one in the 745i)
