One Bad Bimmer

2006 BMW M5 4dr Sedan (5.0L 10cyl 7AM)
This is the ultimate driving machine!! It can be the family sedan to carry around your friends an family around town or it can be a race car. I traded in my 600hp Subaru STi for this an have no regets. It gets looks from everyone and sounds great! Interior design is very nice but the iDrive can be confusing. Set aside about 20 minutes to try out an experiment with the iDrive and you'll get the hang of it. Don't think this car can get any better? Press the M button and everything becomes a lot better. Throttle and steering response are instantaneous. The sound of the exhaust in so beautiful, smooth yet sporty sound that you cannot replicate. It's a car with 4 doors that can you take the track.
The sound of the exhaust, the seats that hold you in while taking those turns at over twice the speed limit, the M button that allows you to make this fast car even faster.
Small gas tank. No manual option, although the paddles are fun I'd rather have a true manual. Draws WAY too much attention from the police and makes for easy tickets
