Best Sports Sedan. Period.

Fantastic overall vehicle. Get the 6-Speed manual transmission and skip the SMG. All the hoohah about the I-drive is nonsense. You set the navigation for a new location when you are parked, previous locations take one button push. Plus the navigation tells you when there is traffic ahead and offers a detour! Because you are busy driving the car, you just use the excellent voice recognition system. Say "cd", it turns the cd on, Say "dial Bob" it dials Bob's number and puts it through the speaker (bluetooth cell phone). All the necessary buttons for A/C, volume, etc. are at your fingertips. This car is the best of both worlds, comfortable to drive around town, seating for 5, beautiful to look at, but hit the M button and you are embarrassing Porsches at every stop light.

I LOVE this car!

by from Des Moines, IA on March 29, 2007

The 2007 Bmw M5 is one of the most dependable, reliable, comfortable luxury car on the planet. The new Mercedes-Benz and Audi cars can NOT compare!

I was looking for a used, comfortable 4 door sports car, manual transmission. Considered M-3, M-5, 535i, Audi, AMG C class - there really aren't too many out there; very hard to find many models that were loaded with manual transmissions. Did not consider new cars, eliminating CTSV, Panamera, Jag XFR - too expensive. M-5 was the one for me given the cost, size and performance. Only thing I don't like is that it is a real gas hog with a smallish gas tank, limiting my range and causing too many trips to the gas station. Love the active and ventilated seats, like the speedo in the windshield, the car size is perfect, great sound, still has 18 months full maintenance and warranty. Huge trunk - I was surprised. I am learning to exist with I-drive, might even tell you I like it one day. I do like the Bluetooth, Nav and 20 way seats. Nice tranny and clutch feel. When you kick in the 500HP (runs normally at "only" 400HP) it is a real beast. I previously owned an E-39 M5 which was, until now, the best sports sedan I ever drove. We have had 19 BMW's - about half M's (I traded in an M-Coupe on this car). This car leans more to the luxury side than the other M's, but that works for me at this stage of my life.

i just got my M5 2 months ago and i love it. I hit the pedal and real world stops and demons unleash... this it my 2nd M5 and like the first one its a stick-shift with a few german goodies under the hood witch makes it even more fun to drive. trust me, this car is for somebody who wants to feel like a kid and a man at the same time. So stop thinking and buy this monster.

LOVE THE CAR. IT WILL DO ANYTHING YOU ASK IT TO DO EXCEPT DRIVE BY A FUELING STATION IF DRIVEN EVEN MODERATELY. BUT, YOU DON'T BUY A CAR LIKE THIS FOR ITS FUEL CONSUMPTION. YOU BUY IT BECAUSE ITS ONE OF THE BEST CARS IN THE WORLD. YOU CAN DRIVE IT TO THE OPERA ON FRIDAY AND RACE ANYTHING OUT THERE ON SATURDAY. ITS A BLAST TO DRIVE.

Never missed a car after vacation.

I get home from a vacation, and after being away from my car, I get in it every time, and say, "i missed my car." The seats are very comfortable, the power is addictive, and I have cured my need to buy a Porsche. The navigation with traffic info is invaluable. The heads up display has been a surprisingly great feature (no polarized sunglasses, but I got over that). Run out and buy one, and you will be impressed.

I have a V10 M5 for more than a year. Its high millage but has been looked after. Problems: Alternator went $1200, Shift paddle switch broke $535, suspension bushes were cracked $1100. Niggles appart this is a tremendous car, fantastic to drive. The engine is a gem, the interior is excellent the seats superb, the handling is sublime. Can be heavy on fuel if used, and can wear out rear tires pretty quick. SMG3 gearbox a bit clunky at lower speeds, nowhere near as smoth as traditional auto. But worth it.

BMW should be embarrassed by this car. Some marketing genius told BMW they should emulate AMG for the “mature” sports sedan driver and that’s exactly what they did; the car has mediocre handling and braking and outright poor road feel. You can’t feel weight transitions and the steering feels loaded at speeds that shouldn’t bother a Corolla. Its good for nothing other than moving very fast in straight line, and not from a standing start either (if you think you will embarrass Porsches or anything else with this, you will be surprised). It is loaded with electronic junk inside and out; and all this manages to do is insulate the driver from the road and create endless annoyance in daily use. The materials and build quality are not particularly good either; the drivers seat is showing wear and wrinkling after only 6 months, trunk lid opens when it feels like it, etc, etc. This car will be traded ASAP. I have had too many real M cars to be impressed by this kind of electronic gadgetry.
