BMW M5 (F10)

.BMW M5 exterior F10

5 Pros

  1. The BMW M5 is very fast and understated. Like a Boeing 747,  it doesn’t really look like it should go so fast
  2. Terrific brakes – but they are needed – this car is heavy
  3. The engine note is good, although BMW have faked it through the 16 speaker stereo. Listening to BMW try to justify this is about as convincing as listening to your partner try to justify a fake orgasm
  4. Very well appointed – it has a feature that gives you a birds eye view when you park (although the heated steering wheel is extra…)
  5. BMW badge still screams luxury

5 Cons

  1. The BMW M5 used to be the end game in fast 4 door cars. Unfortunately though, we now have offerings from Aston Marin, Maserati and Porsche. Also, the similar Audi RS6 and Mercedes E63 are just as good (if not better…)
  2. The old model had a V10, the new model has a V8
  3. In terms of fuel consumption BMW have improved this by 30% over the last model but you would still not call it frugal. As proof it needs a bigger fuel tank than other 5 Series‘…
  4. Not only does the M5 compete with similar offerings from other brands, but the BMW 535 diesel is also terrific and costs A$100k less
  5. The depreciation is going to hurt

Concluding personality type: Carl Lewis in a suit: Hidden speed, but the time has passed
