Performance is great, runs smooth. Is a lot of fun on the open road. safety features are spectacular. Although it cannot go at its full potential and give you the best of its ability, what is available to you is more than enough anyway. (read more)

I've had my $92,000 Blue 2006 BMW M5 for less than 7 hours, so what do I know except I can't wait to get in it tomorrow morning! I might just get in it tonight again and take it for a spin.

I got a hold of a 2003 BMW M5 and it was a masterpiece. I got it up to 240 on the highway and it a thrill. The transmission was so beautiful, it shifted through all the gears with ease, the clutch was like a marshmallow. Very fast car indeed. (read more)

When you have owned a few really nice cars, you tend to notice that there is a league table. This league table is split into three, generally speaking. In each league there is a'genre' of vehicle. In the lowest league you get cars that neither inspire or satisfy the soul. They do their job with no character, they just are good cars. In the middle league, they start giving a taste of that 'X Plus'. They will do something very well and deliver more than the they promise on the can. Then you... (read more)
