|BMW M5 has exceptional quality of everything. Wether it is about front bumper or rear bumper or about safety features of the vehicle, usage of latest technology makes it a choice of high profiled customers. Top notch quality of engine gets a fantastic experience in driving the car. The limitation is the high price for what it offers, though its world famous model, there are plenty of choices available with similar powered engine and high quality with comparatively lower price tag.|
When it comes to the pros and cons of BMW m5, it becomes hard to talk about the cons as BMW is such a great vehicle. But in the world nothing is perfect, so I have some of the details on the list. BMW M5 gives stiff riding some times as it is there in almost all the models of BMW. There is lot of confusing settings in the car, which takes some time for the driver to understand. One major flaw of the car is it is really expensive to own and maintain. Otherwise BMW M5 is a great car to own.
I am agreeing with the answer above, The BMW M5is a great car to own. It has a powerful engine along with stunning looks and practical Interior. A 32 valve 4.5L engine, which can generate 560 BHP power along with 680 Nm torque mated with a 7-speed manual transmission. It gives a real flawless drive, when it comes to the flaws of the car only thing that comes in my mind is its maintenance and service issues.
I have some similar thoughts but I have some more details on the list. You can feel the harsh ride of the vehicle, as well as the air noise while in the great speed. It sucks on the mileage also. ARAI certified mileage of the car is 10 KMPL but it only gives 7-8 KMPL maximum and in the cities it doesn’t give more than 5 KMPL. But even after some major flaws BMW is an awesome car and it has best features installed in to it.
I am not agreeing with the above statements, I am a M5 owner and I know it well now. Yes there is some issue with the mileage but a person buying car for 1.35 crores, obviously mileage will not be a target for him. At least for me it is not a problem at all. So I am all happy with the features and facilities of this car. It is one of the most comfortable and safe car in the segment. The different warning systems installed inside and really you won’t find any issue with the vehicle.
No, there are some issues in the car even I know about them, First is the stiff drive, you will find the steering artificial sometimes. The hardness can be sensed easily in the steering. You can feel the engine noise and a noise coming from the tyres as well. The mileage and service really sucks and will cost you a lot. And finally, the service network of BMW is limited to metros and major cities. So peoples living in remote areas will find it hard to buy and maintain a BMW.
