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


I purchased the car with 22k miles on it. The previous owner had taken good care of it. The car handles well and has lots of power. Driving in rush hour traffic can be a pain with the 6- speed manual. Dealership has been execllent with service. This car is as powerful as the 1998 Corvette I owned, yet has seating for 5. Insurance is costly (even for a 59 year old with a good driving record). Gas mileage average is about 18 mpg around town, which is great for a car with this kind of power. Extremely quiet and tightly put together. Has a great looking understated appearence. Probably the best car I have ever owned.

Best Features

Power, looks, quality interior--A sports car that provides comfort.

Worst Features

Need to have a spare tire, or come standard with run flats. Radio reception is not as good as my Ford. Poor cup holders need improvement. A seven speed automatic would be nice for use in traffic. Of course an extre 100 horseys would not hurt.
