A vault-solid, luxury motor car that breaks the tires clean loose in any of the first three gears
We have had no maintenance issues with the car to date. The pixel display on dash missing some pixels at time of purchase and this has not been fixed.
I have owned a 91 300Z, a 92 Eclipse GSX AWD turbo, a 93 Taurus SHO, and a 04 RX8. The 2000 M5 makes them all look ridiculous. Amazing speed combined with such smooth, quiet, cruising ability is amazing. A pleasure to drive hard, a pleasure to drive easy. Isn't as tossable as the RX8, but weighs more, has 200 more HP with my Dinan mods, and gets better mpg... all while being far more comfortable and quiet.
Very comfortable interior with many useful features... although GPS is not user friendly... good thing it doesn't matter to me.
Structure seems bank vault solid despite 70K miles, and low 20's sale price would seem like a ridiculous bargain. My first BMW, but my guess is I will not buy anything else in the future... no worries about a depreciated used model. My wife now wants one, too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
