The SMG Beast
By Delta King on
2008 BMW M5 4dr Sedan (5.0L 10cyl 7AM)
This car is absolutely amazing, but this car will take most people a little time to learn how to drive. For example, on an up-hill start, the transmission has a built-brake that prevents the car from rolling back until accelerating forward, and resetting the clutch helps eliminate the jerky shifts. Once the car is learned, allow at least a month, it is an absolute masterpiece. If you want a car to just jump into like most traditional auto sports sedan, this car may not be for you. If you are willing to put a little time into learning this car, it will satisfy you every driving need! Take the driving class!
The M mode is absolutely the best feature. It changed the car from a very comfortable family luxury sedan, into an absolute beast, slamming the wife and the kids heads back into head rest on every shift! LOL. And the brakes, Ooo Wee! A M A Z I N G!
