2007 BMW M5 4dr Sedan (5.0L 10cyl 7AM)

Review

Too heavy, not a precise and agile M car as its forebears were. Most of the performance is completely unusable in daily driving. Prepare to be beat at every stoplight unless you are really on it. I think J. Clarkson said it best: completely annoying until you hit the M button. Too bad you can't use that button for 95% of your driving; meaning you will have a really annoying car for 95% of the time you are driving. Sold mine a bought Porsche: a massive improvement in just about every way.

Favorite Features

Was going to say nice paint job, then found out on trade in the trunk had a greater paint thickness than the rest of the car; meaning BMW had damaged the car and repainted it. The net effect was a potential (talked them out if it) reduction in the value of the car. Thanks BMW.

Suggested Improvements

Appalling idrive; 8 menus to change the fan speed, are you joking BMW? Get rid of it! Leather showing wear after 5000 miles; materials are not BMW normal standard. Agricultural noises on start up.
