2002 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is the car for people who like to
drive and don't have any desire to
impress anyone, with the exception of
young car enthusiasts who when you pass
them will invariably give you
the "thumbs up" and not "the finger".
Everyone else will wonder how your
grandmother's car can go so fast around
corners.


Best Features

Speed, safety, control, quality.


Worst Features

Interactive radio and navigation conrols could be simpler, How about a regular dial to turn to get the next station without having to fumble through a menu?

2002 BMW M5 Sedan 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Mild mannered for everyday, run of the
mill driving, an absolute BEAST when
you want it to be!

By far the best car I've ever owned.

Highly recommended!


Best Features

1. Engine -- No explanation necessary. 2. Suspension - Drives like a car half its size. 3. Exhaust Note - No explanation necessary here either.


Worst Features

1. Audio system. Subpar for this class of automobile. 2. Navigation system. Subar as well. Also, its CD rather than DVD-based.

Review

I keep telling myself this car is
impractical, it's bad in the snow, I
pay huge taxes to own it in
Connecticut, it's not so great on gas,
it's even had a couple of problems with
the VANOS system (promptly and
apologetically repaired while I drove a
loaner 5-series), but in the end,
Ican't part with her. This car is so
nimble yet so rock-steady, so fluid yet
so precise that I can't ever imagine
being happy with another car. I'm just
spoiled for life now.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the car's amazing ability to brake quickly from 130 to 65 ;-). This car seems practically invisible to cops. Maybe it's the Blue Water color.


Worst Features

Wish they would have left out the cupholders altogether. It's offensive to have these cheap little accoutrements in an otherwise so solid and elegant a vehicle. Navigation and radio systems are weird and hard to use. Guidance is darn near worthless.
