1991 BMW M5 3.6 Inline 6


A pleasure to drive fast


Replaced water pump at 48,000 miles.

Mostly routine maintenance such as spark plugs, brake pads...

General Comments:

It's a race car. High revs for power, stiff suspension, awesome brakes.

It's seriously fast and quick and handles great.

I wouldn't recommend for using it daily.

Lacks of luxury in the interior.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I too, have a Dodge truck. However, I also drive a Porsche Carrera C4 so perhaps my perspective on the M5 is a bit better than the previous reviewer.

I feel the car's comfort is excellent concerning room, seat quality, environmental control, lighting, etc. The ride is punishing on a rough road. More like my Porsche than say a Lexus or Mercedes sedan.

Performance wise, with a Dinan chip, it will perform at a level equal to all, but the latest super sedans with V8s and V10s.

I have found the handling to be a bit lacking. Less linear stability and poor jounce control. This may be a problem with my car, however, as my earlier M3 had neither of these characteristics.

Overall, a great car in the mountains and on the interstates as well.
