Traded in my 2017 Challenger Hellcat on this 2018 M5 so I have some experience with ultra high performance cars. Here in Denver the Hellcat was a nightmare when the temps were below 60. The M5 has all wheel drive so the power delivery is so much more controlled. I wouldn't want to drive the M5 in the snow but when the temps are low and roads are dry it makes you feel like you're totally in control.The M5 is a little smaller and has four doors so you can put people or groceries in the back seat and not just your racing helmet. Interior materials and comfort are better and the sterio is way better. It's been a year since I posted this review and since then I hit a deer in Kansas last summer. It was a tremendous impact causing 25K in damage but the car handle the impact incredibly well. Was doing about 65 MPH at the time but the car continued straight as an arrow. Not even a hint of loss of control. Unfortunatly, the deer didn't fare as well. There still was a piece of it hanging off the car when I sent it to the body shop.

The BMW F90 M5 is an amazing vehicle with both luxury and performance. It is a two in one vehicle, which is good as it costs as much as two vehicles. It is a true apex predator on the road with quickness, speed and handling ... and the ability to embarrass drivers of vehicles with many more thousands in price or many more horsepower. It is a challenge to remain within speed limit … with a simple touch of the pedal putting you in to triple digits in a hot second. It handles well, and it only takes the touch of one of the M-buttons to shift from a relatively smooth and quiet prowl, to an outright ludicrous beast. The power is linear through the band, and it just keeps giving more ... like a freight train. The technology in the M5 is top notch, and the new iDrive works very smoothly and intuitively … but it does have moments where it refuses to connect to the phone and the Bluetooth and/or vehicle needs to be restarted to connect. The menu preview in the screens is a great improvement. The B&W sound system is brilliant, and a must have option. In the past I felt the B&O system in the Audi S8 set the bar … but I now realize I was wrong. The CC brakes are powerful and take a bit to get used too. They can be annoyingly loud when wet, but goes away after they dry. The full merino leather is wonderfully soft and smooth, but is sensitive to mar and dents - requiring more care.
