One of the Best Cars Ever Made
By JD on


2003 BMW M5 4dr Sedan (4.9L 8cyl 6M)


The E39 M5 gets an automatic entry in the debate for best sedan ever made - if not best vehicle period. The design is timeless. The build-quality is superb. The performance speaks for itself. This is a car that does EVERYTHING right. Press the "Sport" button to invoke mind-bending acceleration and seemingly inexhaustible grip. The braking is par excellence. The frame has a rigidity akin to the Hoover Dam. Response, whether throttle or steering, is instantaneous. Every moment in an M5 can make you aware that this is, truly, a very special machine.

Best Features

Everything. Acceleration, handling, braking, response, transmission, color- changing metallic paint, the rims, luxury features out the ying-yang. The E39 M5 represents the best of engineering and design from what is arguably the world's best automaker.

Worst Features

The paint is beautiful but, like most environmentally-friendly mixes, it chips too easily.
