Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have always been a BMW fan/owner. Although they are not the best in terms of reliability (mostly electrical), it'd definitely help you remove whatever burden you carry in life, the moment you start driving it. Acceleration, handling, feeling are race car experience. If you have kid and still enjoy spirit driving, nothing beat this 4 doors machine. I used to own a 911 and had to let it go after having a kid. Now I have found something which is faster which the whole family can comfortably enjoy together. Definitely worth the buy especially now pricing is at its lowest(found mine with 69K miles with rare Oxford Green, fully loaded, extremely well kept for only $18K). Don't worry about the potential high maintenance. You have saved a lot already getting it used as the guy before you had to throw out 80 larges for it."
"pros: few sedans come close in overall performance and enjoyment. very few know what the car is or how fast it can go. sports car engine & handling in a comfortable spacious car.
cons: fun to track but expensive maintance/repairs, hard to find oil, shifter cluncky with poor engagement. heavy clutch. easy to scratch wheels. all M5's over laden with unnecessary luxury features.
useless cup holders."
