One fun car

I have a few performance cars like a supercharged Roush Mustang, a couple of Corvette Z-06 Corvettes, SRT Challenger and a few hot rods. This car is definitely James Bond material. It has 500 HP and I rarely use the "M" setting moving it from 400 to 500 HP. Except for the terrible fuel mileage I love this car. It gets about 11 to 14 mpg. Since it's such fun to drive, ********** cares. It is truly a monster car when let loose to run. The I-drive control is not so hard to use once you get familiar with it.

smg takes getting used to, remember it has a computer controlled clutch, you need to send clear messages to the computer on what you want it to do incredible automobile, best I have owned, comfortable 4 door sedan or intensely fast sports car, depends upon your mood and traffic conditions...the car is ****** best when driven and pushed
this car is beautiful but NOT better than E63amg

this car is very good. it handles great and the performance is astounding but not good enough for the merc E63AMG. the m5 brakes down too many timmes when you go fast(13 times in 200miles journey)
Review of 2007 BMW M5
Luxury well blended with scorching performance
I was a Corvette guy for play and a Grand Cherokee for business. A bad lower back was making both cars a problem notwithstanding good, multi-position leather seats in both. The M5 was my answer...comfortable, supportive seats, great looks with lots of room yet quicker than a Vette roadster. You quickly forget the M5 has four doors as the body is tight and solid. The engine is the most responsive performance mill I have ever driven yet quite suitable for street driving and traffic if needed. The suspension is on the taut side and is probably the one thing I would change...other than the silly cupholders that plague most German cars...to one that is truly adjustable to meet road conditions. Repairs are not cheap when needed but there have not been many and BMW stands behind their product in a more than fair manner if unusual problems develop. Having put 70K miles on the car in six years, I will be driving it happily for a long time.
