I bought this vehicle with 19,000 miles and drove it for 30,000 enjoyable miles! It's fast, comfortable, gets around 19 mpg around town, and handles like a true 4 door sports car. This series of M5 is now the bargain of the new century.
I echo most other reviews - a pure rocket to drive, very comfortable, I think the best sedan ever built! I have owned 911s, 924Ss, 3-series bimmers, this car blows everything away! I'll probably buy an '03 M5 next, since I am not a fan of the E60 body style (yet, anyway!).
Sport on, DSC off - and serious 0-60 acceleration (0-100 too for that matter!).
Cup holders, power window motors are weak, cross drilled rotors, shorter throw shifter.
