2002 BMW M5 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.
