The E39 BMW M5 Is BMW’s Best Sport Sedan Ever

The E39 BMW M5 is the greatest sport sedan BMW ever made. Today I'm reviewing the E39 M5 to show you why it's so loved, and I'm taking you on a thorough tour of this BMW M5. I'm also going to show you all the quirks and features of the E39 M5, and I'm going to drive the M5 to explain why I love it so much.

    I’m in the minority here, but among M5 model eras, the F10 deserves a lot more recognition than it appears to get. In terms of performance, design, tech, luxuriousness and all-around configurability, it was a truly successful leap into the modern car era.

    The Turn Signal Stock feels solid b/c owners have yet to learn its function as well the rights side of the steering wheel as BMW owners only hold it around 12o'clock left handed and sit down below the wheel that you think there's no driver in it:) kidding aside major respect to the owner for how well too care of the Bavarian werke

    of all time ,i bet it as not a manual transmition? before it was considered a hazard to have a powerfull car without manual transmition , i even remenber when the first powerfull car was sold with a automatic transmition to be sold in north america , than the profit was high and most of the brands were installing automatic transmitions to american market ,in the 90´s there were high-performance cars that had not automatic transmition but since mid 90´s it changed also installing those padles near the steering wheel ,so you can shift down or up as neded but without a clutch as an example a aston martin with automatic transmition was not even close in control and speed near one with manual today they just don´t care any kid can drive a ferrari with acelarate /brake then they die ,but they were one of the last brands to install automatic transmitions along with Lotus as i refer to in the 90´s ,profit above all, the M5 i even read a coment that there wasn´t none with manual ,see what i mean, where i live no M as automatic or why buy an M ?to show off to the neighboors?in the city where i live there is a lot of money coming from the main source of income and the only automatic cars that existed were from people who had a lost of a limb in the war in africa

    maybe because it was the less sold 5 series, like the Z8 or the Z1 ,when people avoid or just don´t buy it ,it becomes rare and very expensive i should have bought the Z( instead of the 850 V12,for alf the money).in Europe they rented the Z8 for one to drive in circuits and they had a mechanical team ,the cars were all white with hardtop and racing wheels

    We had an e39 528i it was the best and most reliable car we have owned. On a trip it was fantastic, smooth, quiet and just ate miles. Had a great trunk so you could take a lot of luggage. I am amazed how this car has retained a modern look. The one you had could have been a new model and it would look good to me now. Great review I have an e90 M3 now which I love but would not mind one of these in my garage as well 👍

    Now, this says a lot about many idiot owners of an E39 M5 (not about this one, though). It gave them useful information when the engine is warm enough, many of them never paid attention to it, anyway. Sad story.

    This is the only BMW that I’d ever own. What a car! And I love BMW but the quality just isn’t the same as Mercedes-Benz. There’s a clear difference and you feel it in a lot of little ways when you drive the cars back to back each other - that said, I loved my E39 540i but the thing was always in for service. It needed a sensor or a repair every month or two. Which is why I’ve only ever owned my one BMW and just yesterday, bought my 12th Mercedes-Benz.

    FINALLY, SOME ONE 'GETS' IT. THE MORE PEOPLE MAKE VIDEOS ON THE CAR, THE HIGHER PRICES ARE GONNA GO UP. The THING is, people have BEEN doing this with the E30, look now. Now people are starting to do it with the E39 M5, and NOT JUST the M5, but with ALL E39s. Now, I know I shouldn't be saying this but it's TRUE, If you cannot afford an M5 that much, people would FLOCK to the 540i M sport, and covert it to manual too. Or look for a manual one. Because it's the 'near' M5. Even a channel called Prepetunal Radio Networks made a video with the EXACT same name, and its been up for some time, blame him for making prices go up on those too. See, that's what people do, look for alternatives. Are you trying to buy an M5? And how long for?

    Hey Doug, I had 3 E39s including a M5....One thing you didn't mention about the cupholders is that the cabin temperature sensor is pointed right at your drink. So a cold drink would turn up the heat and a hot drink would turn on the AC! I swear this was an intentional German Engineer booby trap And here's something useful for the center armrest....convert to a storage bin. I never bought one - too expensive

The Lancia only bought it because a friend of mine married and someone ofered this car but he had just bought a new car a new bike and her wife had also bought a new litle car and the Lancia was stoped and i bought it with 5 years for 2.500€, during this 5 years i drove it more than his owner ,this values were made at today exchange
