Great performance and comfort

This car offers the best of most worlds. The performance and fun factor are great. You can drive it aggressively and have a ball or drive it normal without too many compromises. The good: Performance, comfort, fun, size, versatility, oh yea, did I mention performance. The not so good: Gas mileage, can be clunky when driving nonaggressively, no slots for car phone or bluetooth except under the arm rest I would recommend this car to anyone who loves performance and has the discipline to control the desire to leave everyone standing still all the time. Otherwise, either your license or your life will be short lived.

Most sporty and luxurious car I have owned.

by from Fishers, IN on February 16, 2011

The car look like a sedan but drives like a race car. It is a lot more beefy than the 5-series rivals but can take the turns like it is on rails. The engine sounds great and the power (especially in M...

M5 on a budget

The M5 is truly an amazing car. It handles like now other, has all the power you could ever want and yet you can take your coworkers to lunch with you in complete comfort. I highly recommend it to any enthusiast on a budget as the 2006 SMG's can be had at a bargin in comparison to their original retail price. The only con, don't expect good gas mileage. City I get around 11 MPG, highway I can get 19. I love this car.

You get what you pay for. I love this car and am pleased everytime I get in it. I'd say that the only issues are poor gas mileage (I know, whatya expect from a 500hp car) and the gas pedal lag in everyday driving.

BADDEST CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED

by from Houston, Tx on February 1, 2008

Bad (in a good way) is the word to describe my M5. I've done a few modifications to my car. It's even faster now. When people ask "is that the 500hp model?" I say "and then some"... How fast is the car? I backed it down at 197mph and it still wanted to go. You have now idea how fun it is to go to the track and race a corvette... And beat it! Owning a M5 has been a life long dream for me. I may never get rid of it.

least reliable bimmer!

by from chattanooga,TN on March 24, 2007

I have owned 6 bimmers in the last 10yrs, must say the 05 645ci and 06 M5 are the worst. not in the sense as lemons, but the mentioned two were both SMG with I-DRIVE . BMW should have introduced dual clutch on these cars. They drive like a buggy in town. and the i-drive is going to be the death of BMW, unless they get rid of it. I got rid of my M5 after just 3600 miles , it had been in shop for a SMG failure at only 1000 miles and yaw sensor failure at 2500 miles. the electronics are going to collapse in these cars. I miss my '98 540i.

4 Door Sedan 0-60 in 4.5 secs

by from Munich on January 25, 2008

A 4 door sedan that gets you from 0- 60 in less then 5 secs. WOW. The I-Drive is a pleasure. The Sound System is great. Oh and free service for 4 years or 50k. On a SPORTS car.
