2003 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I've always wanted the best, so I purchased my M5. It's the best of luxury and sport. Capable of being a family sedan as well as a weekend sportster.


Worst Features

The design of the cup holders needs to go back to the drawing board.

2003 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

this is a true racecar for the street. last year,as a benefit of buying the M5,i attended the performance track day in south carolina where we got to thrash M5s around the rack and skid pad for a day. these cars just keep giving and giving....power and control at the same time. i love this car it doesn't turn heads like a ferrari would, but it elicits appreciative glances and thumbs up from knowlegeable car folk. and it ran nose to nose with a ferrari 360 one sunday morning on interstate 95 from the entrance ramp to well north of 150mph. the ferrari quit


Best Features

low end torque in first gear and great ratio spacing tremendous grip and world class brakes


Worst Features

a V-10....but in the current 5 body style

2003 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Far better than I expected. The nicest car I have owned. I have a 90's M3 and an 80's M5, but this exceeded my expectations. Most impressive is that it offers confidence-inspiring road feel while still providing a ride that is not jarring to passengers (unlike my Honda S2000 which can occasionally tire both driver and passenger).The engineers at BMW have achieved a suspension that provides appropriate feedback without undue harshness. The engine winds up like a turbine with an exhaust note that only hints of the power available. The interior is beautiful and uses leather on every surface save the cieling.


Best Features

Perfect road feedback - confidence inspiring yet still offers a comfortable ride. Beautiful interior. Power - makes a 4000 pound car feel light.


Worst Features

Better interface for the GPS unit and expand its capabilities. My Garmin StreetPilot III unit is easier to use and contains more information. The two subwoofers eat up trunk excessive space. The shift throw is too long and lacks crispness.

I love my BMW M5. It is so fast. It also looks hot. I do not want to have any other besides the BMW M5.

Every feature is my favorite in the BMW M5.
