2000 M5

by kxlara from Knoxville, TN | December 19, 2011

The car is a blast to drive. Make sure that you have a deep wallet for repairs though, and a good independent BMW repair site the is good with S62 engines.

If you want to buy yourself a reasonable gift

by Beast of CT from Darien, Ct | November 8, 2011

A new BMW M5 is over $100K in 2011 and they are going to continue going up. An M5 from 2006- 2008 will run between $35K to $55K- these will continue to go down The E39 (2000-2003) run from $10K to $21K- they cannot go down that much more and they are a blast to drive. If you do your homework and find an E39 that was taken care of (closer to $21K) and didnt have the daylights beaten out of it (closer to $10K)- you will have a car that will keep that smile on your face. I bought an '00 with 71K miles from the original owner- the man was an attorney in his 40s and had the car serviced by a BMW dealership. The engine is very strong- the suspension is tight as a drum- the interior is magnificient (the quality of the leather is amazng- this is an 11 year old car and the seats are barely broken in)- the exterior is excellent (a couple of dings but you really have to look to find the flaws) and the lines on the E39 (in my opinion) are superior to the E60. This is a drivers car that uses high quality materials and is built by car experts. If you get a good one- the S62 engine is a beast with power to spare. Will it cost you more for maintenance? Of course- but this is expected when dealing with a high performance vehicle. And the bottom line is you wont dont better for $17K to $20K.

I love this car!!

by Halback71 from Eau Claire, WI | October 29, 2011

I was skeptical going from a Mustang to a BMW but this car is amazing. I can't believe a car that is 11 years old drives so smooth and can outperform almost anything made today. This car brought back my desire to drive.....

Nice Family Sedan

by Fredtx from Dallas, Tx | July 22, 2010

I have read these reviews, and don't necessarily agree with the repair expense issue. First off, all dealerships I have dealt with are charging FAR more then the service they are providing is worth. If you find a good independent, you will get better continuous reliable service, and only what you need. BMW dealer service centers in the Dallas area are a lot like the traditional American manufacturers any more. It isn't about service, it is about how deep can they force you hands into your pockets. All that said, the US auto manufacturers, still now 11 years later, can't build a family sedan like this automobile. This car is incredible. 400bhp, 0-62.5 in 5sec, beat a same model year Lambo through the slalom, and still maintain 24mpgs at 80mph or less highway, and if every traffic light isn't a rabbit start, then this car will continue to get 14-16mpg in the city. My combined sits around 18-20mpg. Now I am not saying it isn't always tempting to throttle it up a little when your light turns green, but even a casual acceleration is wonderful in this car. Handling and safety, absolutely one of the best with good tires, like Pirrelli P-zeros, this thing will stick to the face of the earth!! This car has way to good of suspension for Bridgestones, tried two different sets, and I feel like I am on sand with them. Maintenance over a standard 5 series is only expensive on parts cost. Example is that brake pads and rotors, at most, are 3x the price for parts as the 5 series, however the time to do the job is the same. So if you are thinking of buying a 5 series in this vintage, and the M5 is an option in your price range, find a good independent have them do a once over to insure the previous owner didn't have to much fun in this car, and then make your deal. I will never let anyone have mine, this is going to be garaged and driven only monthly as it ages. It is so fun to see the over priced and over promoted Japanese cars just fall by the wayside as this car runs with them. Just incredible, I truly believe there is NO better used car option out there over this car if you are buying for over all driving performance and safety. However if you want the latest and greatest technology car with little to no performance, look at Japan.

why buy new

by casual enthusiast from | May 1, 2010

I am a car guy, but don't necessarily want to deal with all of the repair issues affiliated with "supercars." I bought this car used from a neighbor with 28k miles on it. I have 42k now. No issues, lights, repairs, anything. Just smiles when I drive. Great car, great value. why buy a new car that everyone drives and has less style???

Amazing car if you can afford perplexing fixes

by ozaudioman from Atlanta | January 3, 2010

If you're a guy/gal that loves super sedan comfort with rollercoaster thrills this is the car for you...UNLESS...you hate/can't afford the upkeep of a vehicle that was once as expensive as a small home. Everyday I still get into my car and know that this is one of the best cars ever made. The build of the e39 M5 is second to none. Saying this, even the best car need repairs, especially when it's hitting close to the 10 year mark. When you have to repair an M5 it can be a major pain in the U know what. BMW has almost over engineered this amazing car. You wouldn't believe how many things can trigger the check engine light...and when something has to be fixed be prepared to fork over costs you'd expect out of a $75000 super car. In the same breath, if you don't mind it and you have the cash this is the perfect car for everything you want. It has world class performance and world class luxury all in one. If you can find a well maintained, low mile 1 owner TAKE IT...You'll never regret owning the "Greatest car ever made" Take good care of it and it will take good care of you. The M5 is the Ultimate of Ultimate driving machines.
