Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

The five-seat M5 is BMW's high-performance variant of the 5 Series sedan. It's powered by a twin-turbo V-8 engine that makes a whopping 560 horsepower and 500 pounds-feet of torque in its regular form. Offered with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, the M5 will sprint to 60 mph in the low-four-second range, according to BMW. Competitors include the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, Audi S6 and Cadillac CTS-V sport sedans.
New for 2014
The M5 gets subtle exterior enhancements like a new grille design with an M5 badge, new taillights and optional adaptive LED headlights. Inside, there's a new M steering wheel, more storage space and a new touchpad for the standard iDrive system, which allows users to trace out characters when entering an address.

There's also a new Competition Package that brings the M5's output to 575 horsepower – up 15 hp - and also includes new coil springs, revised dampers, stiffer stabilizer bar and a 10-mm lower ride height. The Active M Differential and steering system have been tuned, and the package also includes 20-inch light-alloy wheels and a sport exhaust with black chrome tailpipes.
Exterior Highlights

  • Aggressive styling cues differentiate the M5 from the regular 5 Series
  • Standard 19-inch wheels; 20-inch wheels optional
  • Adaptive xenon high-intensity-discharge headlamps; full-LED headlamps optional
  • Rear spoiler

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
