I only have about a week before the snow flies and the M5 gets parked for the winter and replaced by the X5. I drove it for a couple of hours this evening by myself and found myself pondering the beauty of the beast. The E60 M5 is the greatest car ever built!
Is it the fastest? NO
Is it the roomiest? NO
Is it the quickest? NO
Is it the best looking? NO
Is it the most high tech? NO
But it has all of the above qualities in the right porportions. I had two car seats in the back seat this weekend, full of two grandkids, with their Grandma and I in the front seats. Last week I had three sets of golf clubs in the trunk and two good buddies with me inside the cabin (couldn't find a fourth). I can leave on any green light and everyone that is behind me stays behind me. I find I'm talking to myself quite regularly about just how great this car is.
I am 53 and have owned some very potent muscle machines in my life but NOTHING compares with this car. I no longer get the looks from the 20 year old tighties as I pull up to lights. It means more to me when somebody who appreciates cars comes over and strikes up a conversation, a little drool glistening from the corner of his mouth while he looks the M5 over.
I have only had mine for a couple of months and all I can say is you guys and gals that have been driving this machine for years are a bunch of lucky buggers!
My rant is done, I'm going for another drive!
I can agree with you completely, reagannelson
I've been eyeing that beast from rumours to concept to production.
It's sad though that as soon as it climax with it's debut, it didn't reign for too long, before being toppled by Merz's and Audi's equivalent.
Still, I hope to own the E60 M5 some day....
