I have owned the car for nearly 2 years now and can only praise the car as it is a joy to drive and puts a smile on my face all the time. The brakes on the M5 are the only bad point I can make about the car and I have upgraded mine to a set of AP 6 Pots which has done the job and I will feel very happy with taking the car to the ring. The M5 is a good buy with prices for big motorway mile cars as low as 11k up to £25k for mint low mileage 03 plates. Remember these cars back in 99 were £60k with no spec so a lot of them are speced up to £70k so look what you get for your money. BMW E39 M5 Register
Great car all the way around, excellent quality and phenominal performance. This is my first BMW and now I understand all the great things the car mags say about the 5 series. Best car that I have ever owned and I would highly recommend the car to others. I'm very interested in how they will improve on this car in upcoming new model.
One of the best values on the road today in terms of super-exotic-car-type performance at a reasonable price. The best blend of luxury, aestetics, engine performance, road handling ability, and convenience, and all in a 4-door sedan no less.
M5 is an amazing car to drive. I always wanted to have one... now I'm driving it. Great handling, very comfortable, and not too "show off" unlike other sportcars. Wanted to get a 911 but the M5 is an all around vehicle that can accommodate the whole family. Cupholders are terrrible but I should not be drinking in the car anyways. I find myself turning off the radio and just listening to the exhaust. What a wonderful beast!!!
